Welcome from the City Advancement Officer

Welcome to the City of Westfield's Economic Development website.  As the City of Westfield Advancement Officer one of my main goals is to ensure the city is continuing to move forward.  Through our wide array of development incentives, a business friendly environment and vibrant and knowledgeable workforce, we are considered one of the business hubs in Western MA.

For these and other reasons, numerous major international and domestic corporations from Home Depot RDC and Gulfstream to Preferred Freezer and Advanced Manufacturing make their home here in Westfield.  They do so alongside the campus of the Westfield State University, within the region of the Knowledge Corridor and together, these institutions produce a highly skilled and well-educated workforce to serve the employers of the region.  Westfield continues to have very diversified businesses yet it enjoys one of the strongest regional manufacturing bases within its community.

The City Advancement Office stands ready to assist your business to locate to or expand within our unique mix of developed and undeveloped areas.  Whether your need is specialized financing, demographic data, or access to attractive tax incentive programs and other means of assistance, the City Advancement Office is ready to serve your company.
