On June 21, 2018, Cocheco Valley Humane Society broke ground on their new facility being built on County Farm Road in Dover. We are proud to facilitate this venture through our role as a financing partner alongside Kennebunk Savings and Federal Savings Bank.
The new facility will increase the nonprofit humane society's capacity and capability in caring for animals in need here in Strafford County and Seacoast New Hampshire.
SEDC customer and director Mark Wentworth, founder and president of Green View Technologies in Rollinsford, has been named the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 2018 Small Business Person of the Year in New Hampshire, first and foremost of awardees statewide.
Wentworth launched Green View Technologies, a “re-refinery” for used oils, in 2010 with $4 million in SBA financing through Enterprise Bank and $1.5 million in funding through SEDC.
The company employs 15 people and processes over 4 million gallons of oil annually. An expansion planned this year has the goal of doubling GVT’s current output.
Subsequent to the yearlong process of SEDC lining up the financing that leveraged the bank funds into the project, Mark became fascinated by the role SEDC plays in assisting businesses and became the Rollinsford representative on the SEDC Board of Directors.
