Candy companies merge, controversy arises at auction, West Valley cleanup moves forward

From Business Today:


A Buffalo candy company has merged with a Virginia-based confectioner. Tzetzo Brothers on Military Road and Wythe Will Distributing announced Wednesday they would join forces and share leadership. Both companies make branded and private label candy. The Virginia company is known for its Lindt chocolate and Jelly Belly jellybeans. Together, as Wythe Will Tzetzo, they are expected to have annual revenues of more than $200 million.



More than 60 homes and apartment buildings in Amherst, Cheektowaga and the Town of Tonawanda were auctioned last week to settle the estate of a major local builder who passed away in 2007. Cash Cunningham conducted the auction ordered by Erie County Surrogate's Court. But controversy arose when the complexities surrounding one bundle of properties led to misunderstandings and left potential bidders confused and angry.


A contaminated area in West Valley, just south of Springville, will start the next phase of its shutdown thanks to a multi-million-dollar contract awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy. CH2M Hill-B&W West Valley, a partnership between engineering giants CH2MHILL and Babcock & Wilcox of Charlotte, N.C., &W won the contract to begin phase one of work at the West Valley Demonstration Project. The site was the country's only privately operated commercial nuclear fuel-processing facility.
