"Developing the Mount Hope Industrial Park has had substantial impact by bringing approximately 500 jobs to Fayette County," said Connie Lupardus, CAEZ Executive Director. Almost 40 acres of land for the park was purchased and developed by CAEZ in 2000 at a cost of $3 million.
Four businesses currently occupy the industrial park. "In addition to the important jobs they provide, these businesses contribute to the city's tax base," said Mount Hope Mayor Michael Martin. "And they bring new families into our community who contribute in so many ways as residents." Mayor Martin is also Chairman of the CAEZ Board of Directors.
West Virginia Governor Bob Wise was instrumental in bringing the first tenant to the industrial park, Global Contact Service (GCS), in November 2001. GCS provides contact center services and help desk functions for clients including Fortune 500 insurance companies. The Mount Hope operation was their first insurance center.
CAEZ plans to construct a technology building on the remaining five acres of the park. It will be an appropriate facility for high-tech companies to conduct research and manufacture products.
