The Unpaid CRDA Loan of $20 million raises questions about New Brunswick Devco

DEVCO is an investment firm aiming towards supporting medium-sized Nordic corporations grow, combined with existing stakeholders. The company has focused on individual investment into the medium sized companies with international potential and considerable growth, which have average revenues of $60 to $600 million. Contrary to the funding model used traditionally, the company is now focusing on a limited number of firms under their jurisdiction, which enables them to provide operational support for their long-term development sustainability.
Devco is always striving to be part of the active owner and is offering:
• Best-in-class person on board
• Operational support to implement and initiate well-defined development programs
• Long-term financial resources for the continual support of future growth

DevCo is a limited company from Finland and is backed by investors with a long horizon ownership.

The Company has been in constant tout by Stephen Sweeney, the state Senate President, as the best example of what happens when state money is used in funding private firms to execute large-scale construction. The New Brunswick Ensemble is part of the modelling of the Development Corporation in Atlantic City., a sister firm that expects to watch over more than $200 million in private and public funding – including the $19.5 million CRDA money- in the development of the Chelsea section of the city Gateway project.
