Study: PA Biotech Center of Bucks County Spurs $1.8 Billion in Economic Impact
Over the past three years, the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center of Bucks County has created 727 jobs and has spurred more than $1.8 billion in economic impact in Bucks County and throughout Pennsylvania, according to an economic impact study released March 8. Commissioned by the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute, the report by KLIOS Consulting LLC, uses the Regional Input-Output Modeling System (RIMS II) developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, to measure direct, indirect and induced economic impacts. This study demonstrates a doubling of dollar value of economic impact from the PA Biotech Center since the last study was performed in 2012, said study leader economist Richard Stein. The PA Biotech Center continues to yield significant benefits to the region and the Commonwealth. A nonprofit organization founded specifically to foster business and job growth, the PA Biotech Center has created $1.6 billion in economic impact in Bucks County and another $227 million in economic impact to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. That breaks down to: " $593 million in direct impact " $837 million in indirect impact " $373 million in induced impact In addition, the center has created 325 jobs directly associated with the center, 237 additional indirect jobs in Bucks County and 165 jobs elsewhere in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania state Sen. Chuck McIlhinney, an early and strong proponent of the center, notes, The Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center and the Blumberg Institute clearly have exceeded all expectations in creating jobs, fostering entrepreneurship, and bringing hope to so many people suffering from human disease. Given their track record, I can see this is just the beginning, and that Bucks County will continue to evolve into a major center for biotechnology entrepreneurship. Created in 2006 by the Hepatitis B Foundation in partnership with Delaware Valley College (now University), the PA Biotech Center converted an abandoned light industrial site north of Doylestown into a state-of-the art biotech center and pledged to replace the 145 jobs lost when the sites former occupant, the D. A. Lewis Associates Inc. fulfillment center, closed. As the report by Stein demonstrates, in addition to being home to the Hepatitis B Foundation and its nonprofit research institution, the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute, which manages the center, the PA Biotech Center now is home to more than 35 start-up companies. The Baruch S. Blumberg Institute and the PA Biotech Center continue to be a source of pride to this community, turning ideas and dreams into innovations, medicines, and, importantly, jobs, said Pennsylvania state Rep. Marguerite Quinn, another early supporter of the center. The PA Biotechnology Center employs an unusual model in which an anchor, nonprofit organization dedicated to drug and diagnostics discovery for liver disease, actively spins out and attracts new companies and entrepreneurs. That approach is working, said the centers Chief Operating Officer Lou Kassa. Many biotech incubators fall short on delivering their promises of helping spur new companies and create reliable jobs, according to a 2015 Kauffman Foundation study. Indeed, most technology accelerators fail, writes Peter Relan, venture capitalist and founder of YouWeb, writing in Technology Link. The PA Biotech Center has fostered some extraordinary success stories in the past few years, and those companies now are models and inspiration for the newer start-ups here, notes Dr. Timothy Block, president and co-founder of the Biotech Center and president of the Hepatitis B Foundation and the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute. The PA Biotech Center has on site some of the most accomplished drug discovery scientists and entrepreneurs in the world. In addition to the economic impact documented in this study, the start-up companies located at the PA Biotech Center now are valued at more than $1.2 billion. Some of the success stories include: Michael Sofia, Ph.D., co-inventor of the hepatitis C cure sofusbovir (Sovaldi), started a company at the PA Biotech Center to discover a cure for hepatitis B, using technology discovered and licensed by the Blumberg Institute. Now called Arbutus Biopharma, the company is valued at more than $500 million. The research division for Synergy Pharmaceuticals, a publicly traded company worth more than $1.2 billion, also is located at the PA Biotech Center. Kunwar Shailubhai, Ph.D., executive vice president and chief scientific officer of Synergy, recently celebrated New Drug Application approval for Synergys pipeline drug plecanatide, which treats gastrointestinal distress. Novira Therapeutics, which was founded to focus on a cure for hepatitis B, recently was acquired by Johnson & Johnson for an undisclosed amount of money. Novira has a hepatitis B drug in human studies. The PA Biotech Center has been a tremendous success, and with more space for expansion, we could do even more, said Kassa. This is just the beginning.

Penn Community Bank Helps Dedicate 101st Habitat for Humanity Home
Penn Community Bank helped welcome home the Muthoni-Mbugua family recently, after the completion of the 101st affordable home built in Bucks County by Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County. At a ceremony on Feb. 25, 2016, Penn Community Bank President and CEO Jeane M. Coyle handed the keys to the new home to Imani, George and Lucy Muthoni-Mbugua. Supporting homeownership is one of the cornerstones of Penn Community Banks mission, as it has been for the many decades our banks have served Bucks County, said Coyle. Helping working families purchase their piece of the American dream is why we were founded, and we are proud to partner with Habitat Bucks to make these dreams come true. The homeowners joined representatives from sponsors, local businesses and Habitat for Humanity for a special home dedication ceremony to recognize the completion of the project. The house was given a blessing by Curtis DeHaven, field coordinator of Bux-Mont Christian Church. Penn Community Bank donated the land on State Road in Croydon upon which the house was built. The bank also helped sponsor the project, joining co-sponsors Bucks County Foundation, Bux-Mont Christian Church, The Dow Chemical Company, Lower Bucks Hospital, Parx Casino, Samuel Adams Pennsylvania Brewery, Wells Fargo and William Penn Bank. Bank employees contributed to Penn Community Banks donations toward the Habitat project through Jeans for a Cause. Employees who donate $5 toward a designated charity can wear jeans to work one Friday each month. In February, donations went to Habitat Bucks. Many other bank team members, executives and board members contributed their time and talents throughout the year at build days to help construct the home. Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County broke ground on the home in April 2015. The construction of a Habitat home requires a local purchase of $60,000 in materials and jobs for area contractors. On average, Habitat homeowners pay $3,500 in local taxes annually and the total investment back to the community from each Habitat home is nearly $200,000. Formed in 2015 by the unification of longtime local banks First Federal of Bucks County and First Savings Bank of Perkasie, Penn Community Bank is Bucks Countys leading mutual financial organization. With more than $1.8 billion in assets, Penn Community Bank is Pennsylvanias second largest mutual bank, large enough to compete - and thrive - alongside larger banks, while still offering personal service in every community it serves. Penn Community Bank was formed to strengthen mutual, independent banking in the area, creating a bank for people who prefer to do business with a financial institution that values people as much as it does profits.

Penn Community Bank offers expert financial advice on banking, insurance and investments, delivered by friendly people through convenient services. Penn Community Banks mission is to help businesses grow and prosper, support individuals and families throughout their lifetimes, strengthen the local economy, and partner with local organizations to act as a catalyst for positive growth in every market it serves.

Habitat Bucks has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, and they accept volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds who are willing to serve people in need of decent housing. The Habitat Bucks Homeownership Program provides an opportunity for low-income families to increase their independence and economic well-being through home ownership and educational opportunities. Habitat partner families work hard for their homes; they contribute an average of 200 hours of sweat equity and will pay a mortgage for their home. Through these unique programs, families acquire a sense of ownership and responsibility that they may not have as renters or tenants. Since their founding in 1990, Habitat Bucks has built 101 affordable homes in Bucks County. Through their A Brush With Kindness program, Habitat Bucks makes repairs to the exterior of homes, including painting, porch repair and the installation of handicapped accessible ramps. Revenue from Habitat ReStores provides a source of sustainable funding for the construction and repair of homes.
