Lancaster’s Tech Community Continues to Make News in 2017
Last December my colleague Matt Landis wrote about how 2016 was a big year for Lancaster’s tech community. Not satisfied with that success, 2017 has continued to highlight Lancaster’s tech sector. Here are a few examples making the front page this year:
- Technology companies continue to drive economic growth for the City of Lancaster. One recent example is the announcement of Cargas Systems as the anchor tenant for the new development at the former Bulova building at North Queen and East Orange streets. Cargas Systems is a pioneer in Lancaster’s tech community led by perennial innovator Chip Cargas. This expansion will further improve the Queen Street corridor that has already seen boons from renovations like those at the Hotel Lancaster.
- Startups are also thriving in Lancaster’s technology community. As noted in this article earlier this month, startup companies are moving into Lancaster to share in the community’s vibrant environment for all things tech. And four local tech companies, BeneFix, Fizika Group, Schedule Engine and TurnoutNow have been named finalists for a $100,000 investment in the “Rise of the Rest” initiative by AOL co-founder Steve Case.
- The New York Times posted a fascinating look into how even Lancaster’s Amish community is using technology to drive their businesses. Yes, you read that right. Even if their beliefs lead them not to use technology at home, at work it can be a different story. From smart phones to computerized table saws, technology continues to impact those from all walks of life here in Lancaster.
