Success Stories

We recently spoke with Gilburt Chiang, who heads up Business Development for electric power solution provider Bigwood Systems (BSI) -- located on our Thornwood Drive -- some questions about operating within the Cornell Business and Technology Park.

Proximity to landlord/developer and venture investor, our location presents connections to business opportunities that you cannot find anywhere else.

I think it is the only location in the area that embodies a high quality technology looking industrial space, not repurposed old buildings, not a dense pack location, and not in a field, it is close to everything.  

I have built three buildings in the Park over twenty years as my businesses expanded and diversified, and will continue to do so in the future.

We thought about buying a building but Cornell Business & Technology Park makes it so easy to do business; the infrastructure is perfect for what we need and the management is excellent.

When we started the Park was perfect as an incubator and gave us potential for real estate growth and stability as we grew.

Overall it’s a great place to do business; great fit for industrial business.  Easy for trucks coming and going to make deliveries, well zoned for an industrial practice like ours.

The biggest advantage I see is room to grow, we have been here 18 years and every time we require additional space to accommodate growth they make it easy to expand.
