How many puff stories can you write about SWIP?   Guess there is no end in sight with the cover story from WoMag this week.  

Try this for a story, how did Worcester miss out on Quest?   Think about it.   Quest is a national firm that specializes in lab testing.  They are moving in big to Massachusetts, where in Central Mass their biggest competition was UMASS.

Why did I say was?  They bought them out.  When they bought out UMASS they mentioned how they were looking to build a big facility in Central Massachusetts.   Can you say Worcester, can you say Wyman Gordon parcel, can you say SWIP??
Well, don't instead say Marlboro.  October 25, 2012-- Read it and weep.     Meanwhile back at the ranch SWIP is working on a marketing plan some 20 years after creation.

Quest Diagnostics Inc. has agreed to move into the former Hewlett-Packard office complex in Marlborough, moving more than 950 jobs to the city, according to a person with direct knowledge of the deal.
The New Jersey-based provider of medical testing services will spend more than $75 million to create a Northeast laboratory facility on the former Hewlett-Packard site, which has been vacant for more than two years, according to the source, who was not authorized to speak publicly because the deal has not been announced.
