How's Hendry Economic Development Doing? New Video
LABELLE, FL. -- Hendry County's Economic Development Council recently produced this elaborate video showing off some improvement to the county's infrastructure around the county and in the cities of Clewiston and LaBelle.
Also shown are big existing businesses and a lot of new ventures, not all of whom are quite the complete success the county would hope for. CPR Tools, for example, after several years in Hendry county, closed shop in LaBelle and left for benefits offered by Lee county.
Altair's 1150 acre training facility in southwestern Hendry has run into financial problems and is the subject of a foreclosure. It's not clear how Henkey Precast is doing despite acres on concrete stored at it's site and likewise next door at Recypoly with acres of waste plastic film "mountains" cluttering acres of land along SR80 west of LaBelle.
