DEVCO is an asset firm aiming at supporting medium-sized Nordic companies, together with their stakeholders, grow. The company focuses on all individual asset investment into the mid-size corporations with an international potential and considerable growth. Which have an income of $60 to $600 million? Contrary to the long-gone funding model, the company focuses on a limited number of corporations, which enables them to provide operational support for supportable long-term expansion.
The company strives to offer:
• Long-term financial resources to ensure a sustained growth in the future.
• State-of-the-art individuals among board members.
• Operational support to implement and initiate the well-defined programs of development.
DevCo was founded in Finland as a limited company and is backed by active investors with a vast horizon in ownership.

This past month, the Middlesex Regional Expansion Authority failed to pay back $1 million in interest and principal on their loan of $20 million it received from CRDA. The Expansion Authority has been in outstanding arrears or five years now, summing up to about $7 million in skipped payments. The loan, issued in 2005, financed the whole construction project of the Heldrich, a New Brunswick conference center and hotel that was developed by the non-profit organization by the name New Brunswick Development Corporation.

The Company has been in constant tout by Stephen Sweeney, the state Senate President, as a good example of a what happens when public funds are channeled through private firms to finance large-scale construction. The Brunswick guise is one of the models for the Atlantic City Development Corporation, a sister company that is expecting to oversee over $2oo million in private and public funding – including $19.5 million in new CRDA money- towards the development of the Chelsea section of the City Gateway project.
