One year after closing on a TD Bank loan through the New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s (NJEDA’s) Premier Lend- er Program to purchase a 160,000 s/f facility in Lum- berton, Miles Technologies is thriving at its new head- quarters. The company had

A $5.5 million TD Bank commercial mortgage loan with a $1.5 million NJEDA participation supported the purchase of the office/warehouse property the company now calls home. Miles Technologies’ Lum- berton facility embodies its founder/chief executive of- ficer’s philosophy of having fun and cultivating creativity at work by offering pickle- ball and basketball courts,

Miles Technologies’ customers represent a wide range of sectors, including the construction and contracting, manufacturing, healthcare and medical, education, en- tertainment, and hospitality industries. Miles Technologies, which currently employs more than 250 people worldwide, has al- ways been committed to creat- ing opportunities for the next generation of innovators. The company provides training not only to current staff, but also to individuals who apply but might not have the skills nec- essary to qualify for a job at Miles Technologies. 50 people per quarter go through the business’s training program and, upon completion, receive certificates that can help them land jobs within the industry. Miles Technologies also offers internships to 10 local college students per year. “Technology businesses like Miles Technologies, which not only provide services to their customers but also create attractive employment and career development oppor- tunities for local residents, are core to Governor Phil Murphy’s vision for making New Jersey the State of Inno- vation,” said Brian Sabina , NJEDA senior VP, Office of Economic Transformation. Through the Premier Lend- er Program, the NJEDA can guarantee or participate in a portion of a Premier Lender’s commercial loans or lines of credit. Businesses can use this financing for fixed assets or term working capital. EDA’s involvement in the transac- tion provides access to lower cost financing for businesses and offers lenders greater flexibility by reducing their overall exposure. The Premier Lender Pro- gram offers loans with up to a $2 million EDA participation or $1.5 million guarantee for fixed assets or term working capital, and up to $750,000 participation or line of credit guarantee. 
