Tri-Ed aims for European firms

        The Tri-County Economic Development Corp. has a new way of recruiting European companies to Northern Kentucky.

        The agency in Fort Mitchell has hired ITI Marketing to court companies in Europe that might be thinking about moving to or expanding operations in Kenton, Campbell or Boone counties. Tri-Ed signed the deal in July, allowing ITI to go to trade shows and follow up face-to-face with contacts.

        The Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport each have used ITI before, said Danny Fore, president of Tri-Ed.

        “It allows us to be more responsive to companies that are looking at the U.S. marketplace,” Mr. Fore said.
