The Adams Community Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC) was founded in 1972 as a non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide a focused economic development effort in the Corning and Adams County area on behalf of all its residents within the context of a high quality of life." While the focus in the early days was strictly on industrial recruitment, ACEDC has expanded its structure to include development of housing, technology, rural and value added agriculture, tourism and historic preservation as well as a tradition as a Great American Main Street. While our #1 priority is job creation, we continue to develop the quality of life attributes you want in your hometown. We invite you to make Adams County your place to live, work, play, and visit.
"From the moment I stepped foot in Adams County, I knew we had made the right decision for the placement of our new ethanol facility. The Adams Community Economic Development Corporation welcomed us with open arms and eagerly assisted us in every step along the way.
From the beautiful rolling hills to the smiles that greet you at every stop, Adams County has won our hearts. We were looking for a friendly community with access to roads, rails and utilities. In addition to providing the necessities, Adams County proved they had the caliber of people we needed to assure our success.
When we began hiring, we were looking for a work-ethic that matched our own, a strong commitment to success, and an enthusiasm for learning. The pool of candidtates from which we had to draw far exceeded our expectations. They brought desire and we provided the opportunity; the perfect formula for success.
Thanks, Adams County, for allowing us to be proud new members of this community!"
