SEBASTOPOL – A long-time family-owned business in Sonoma County has jumped on opportunities offered by the soft real estate market and new SBA incentives to purchase its own building in Santa Rosa.

Corenco Inc., a six-employee maker of milling and grinding equipment for the food industry, is ready to expand in its new location on Dutton Avenue, said owner and President Chris Cory.

"There was a confluence of events and plenty of local help and encouragement that helped us make the decision and accomplish what I hope it the first stage of major growth," said Mr. Cory.

His business, purchased from his father in 1991, had grown steadily and found new markets for its products: grinders and millers used by Kraft, Heinz and local food producers like Amy's Kitchen, Mezzetta, Manzana Products and Apple-A-Day.
