We also offer, free-of-charge, site selection and international business assistance; access to information on state and local funding incentives; talent attraction and retention; market research and analysis; and peer executive meetings. The PRA team will reduce red tape, eliminate wrong turns and help close the deal.
The PRA – working in partnership with other economic development organizations – provided us with comprehensive data and demographic information on the region and its workforce, which made the significant expansion of our sodium-ion battery manufacturing facility in Westmoreland County a reality.

Working together, CBRE, Inc. and the PRA provided information that helped us find a unique Strip District location to accommodate our growth. This is just another example of how, in Pittsburgh, we don’t feel like just one of many companies, as we might in Silicon Valley or New York. Here, we feel the community is trying to help us succeed.

The PRA helped PPG to understand and access information on state and county funding and incentive programs, which were key to closing the deal on our architectural coatings headquarters project in Cranberry Woods.
