Established business? Just starting out? We can help.

"The City's willingness to work with us and make us feel welcome are unparalleled in my experience. Additionally, the University of Massachusetts-Lowell has played a major role in our decision to locate here. We are currently using the UMass laboratories for research and product development and we couldn't think of a better, more appropriate location for Telles (a joint venture of Metabolix and Archer Daniels Midland Co.) sales and marketing headquarters. Lowell is also an excellent location for entertaining clients because of its sports venues and restaurants."
- Robert Findlen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Metabolix
