Water Haus Waterjet, a 10-year-old business that uses high-pressure water to cut steel for local machine shops, is planning to move from North Tonawanda to Lockport by the end of the year.
Owner Andrew Beck said Thursday the company has outgrown its current 12th Avenue building.
Town of Lockport Economic Development Coordinator Marc R. Smith said the town Industrial Development Agency will hold a public hearing Oct. 11 on a 15-year tax abatement for the company's new location in the former Niagara Truss and Pallet plant on Old Saunders Settlement Road. The purchase price and renovation costs total about $450,000.
The company will move five jobs to Lockport and plans to add three more in the 30,000-square-foot building, part of which will be leased to another business, Smith said.
