Simmers Crane Design and Service was approved for $388,000 in tax breaks by the Erie County Industrial Development Agency on Monday to support its planned move from leased space in the Town of Tonawanda to the former Spaulding Fibre site in the City of Tonawanda.

Simmers said the total cost of its project, which involves construction of a 20,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, is $1.7 million. Simmers said it needed new space, and reviewed several sites inside and outside the Town of Tonawanda before choosing the Wheeler Street location.
