A ruling in favor of Marcone Supply has been upheld by the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court. The ruling bars competitor 1st Source Servall from soliciting business from 640 of Marcone's customers. The Cheektowaga company claims two of its former employees used inside information to lure clients away to Servall when tasked with establishing three new Northeast distribution sites. Marcone claims the two Buffalo-are executives, Mark J. Creighton and Karl P. Rosenhahn, stole a confidential list of 3,300 Marcone customers then tried to cover up the theft by destroying evidence. Pictured at right is Marcone's director of Information Technology.
A former University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Design site at 2915 Main Street is one step closer to becoming loft apartments. A Ciminelli Real Estate affiliate purchased the former Buffalo Meter Co. building for $1.05 million and plans a $12.5 million renovation. To be called the Bethune Lofts, the six-story building will have 87 unique one- and two-bedroom apartments with a penthouse on the top floor.
A Clarence company has filed an application for an "investigational new drug" with the Food and Drug Administration and is hoping to fast-track the review of a smoking cessation aid. 22nd Century Group is hoping a faster review will allow it to bring its low-nicotine cigarettes to the market as soon as possible. The company should know within a month whether its request has been granted. If it is, the company hopes it could receive FDA approval during the first quarter of 2013.
