Pittsburgh Ranks 9th Best City to Locate a Business

Expansion Management Magazine, a publication focused on business location, has ranked Pittsburgh the 9th best city in the U.S. to locate a business.

Phoenix ranked number 10, just behind Pittsburgh.

This ranking is a feather in the cap of the local organizations and individuals who are attempting to attract businesses to our region. It may prove to be an important tool in convincing Westinghouse to locate it's nuclear engineering employees in Pittsburgh.
