EAILD'S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT HISTORY
Easton Area Industrial Land Development Company Inc. (EAILD) was created in 1961 by Easton Area visionaries, industrialists, corporate and business leaders as a private, non-profit Pennsylvania Corporation. EAILD's purpose was "to improve the employment base (create/expand jobs) by attracting industries to our community." This was achieved by EAILD's purchasing land and developing two Industrial Parks - with our numerous public sector partners - one in Forks Township, one in Palmer Township. Both these Parks now employ approximately 6000 workers. EAILD no longer has land investments in these Parks and the individual municipalities continue to prosper and market sites if available.
The Industrial and Office Campuses and revitalizing three cities and numerous boroughs in Lehigh and Northampton Counties have helped expand, retain and
create many tens of thousands of jobs for Pennsylvania's third-largest Metro Statistical Area (MSA) and award-winning Lehigh Valley.
