Building Business in Braddock, North Braddock, Rankin, and Swissvale


About EZCB



Helping Braddock, North Braddock, Rankin and Swissvale mind their business

EZCB members are active participants in the economic development of the area, receiving ongoing support for their business planning. Members reap the benefit of first-hand knowledge about local business developments; while others know only what'­s in the media, EZCB members understand the news behind the news. Work on EZCB committees and attendance at the annual dinner and other events provide valuable networking opportunities for members.

To date, we have provided $2.7 million in direct loans, leveraged $15 million in other funding, and created 430 local jobs. We're among the top five Enterprise Zones in Pennsylvania at processing tax credits.

The area has rebounded since EZCB was founded in 1985. The steel industry's decline had produced hard times for local communities-but today successful businesses are capitalizing on a prime location with low taxes and a skilled and hard-working labor force.

EZCB, known for expert leadership, continues its strong support for businesses of all types and sizes through a variety of targeted services. We also work to promote major projects that will bring both opportunities and resources to our service area.

EZCB is a membership organization with nominal dues of $10 to $50 per year, depending on the membership category. Membership is open to individuals and to public and private organizations, but is not required to benefit from EZCB's programs.
