Let’s lead with the good news. Go to a Little League game, a back-to-school night, a gym, or a party anywhere in the greater Princeton area and you will be in the company of scientists, landscapers, educators, engineers, small business owners, medical administrators, warehouse managers, and shareholders in start-up banks. A one-company town this is not. Home to a trio of four-year colleges, dozens of medical care institutions, scores of non-profits, several pharmaceutical giants, numerous biotechs, technology grand dames like Sarnoff, and technology start-ups of all kinds, Princeton has many legs to stand on.

That said, those legs will need to be doing a lot more running than standing in the coming year. Jerry Fennelly, commercial real estate broker, puts it this way: “The concept is to run forward and embrace your issues. Anyone who says we do not have to change is kidding themselves.”

Yes, times are tough. Another commercial broker, David T. Houston of Colliers Houston & Co., paints a picture of a supertanker built to forge ahead through the roughest of weather. But, he says, the supertanker that is New Jersey may have met its match. “Even the progress of the largest ships in the world will eventually succumb to a perfect storm out on the open ocean,” he writes in his most recent quarterly report. “The relentless torrent of wind, rain, and waves will win the battle.”

The perfect storm seems to be on us. Every employee has a lay-off story, or fears to star in one. Business owners, even the ones who are doing well, are terrified of what the coming year will bring.

One sector affects another, with the stronger sectors better able to absorb the blows. Right at ground level, the first to know when a company is moving in or out, and when it needs more space, or less, are commercial realtors. Their reports (and U.S. 1’s own reporting of companies coming and going on our business landscape) provide a snapshot of where we are now, and where we are likely to be in the months to come.

Fennelly, in his fourth quarter report, says that the medical sector slowed a bit in 2008, but added that it will pick up substantially when Princeton Hospital and Capital Health System open their new suburban hospital centers.

Another bright spot is education, with Princeton University leading the way with big construction projects and big new leases. Government, too, did well last year, with both the federal government — including the Federal Reserve — and the state government leasing tens of thousands of square feet of additional space.

The finance sector had flat growth, but Fennelly expects that will turn negative as the full effect of banking chaos, and attendant mass layoffs, is felt this year. A similar trend could emerge in the pharmaceutical sector as mergers cause the big companies to contract into smaller spaces. Technology, always a growth catalyst to one extent or another in the greater Princeton area, could help out again in the coming year. Fennelly points out that the new administration’s emphasis on energy could provide lots of work for researchers in both academia and the private sector.

So there is good news. But Fennelly cautions that no one should be complacent. “Look at your business model for other ways to generate revenues that you may have ignored in the past,” he suggests. Going a step farther, he uses the famous Seinfeld episode in which George Costanza landed a job with the Yankees by doing the opposite of everything he had done in his life. “Yes, do the opposite of what you are doing,” he says. “The problem with running successful companies is that we pick up bad habits and become complacent. What is wrong is right, what is right is wrong.”

At the very least, this should be a very interesting year.

Listed below are some of the company moves that occurred last year. Given that this is U.S. 1’s “Progress Issue,” we have culled the positive moves from our 2008 archives, which include references to more than 451 companies.

While uncovering bad news about companies is a lot more difficult than obtaining good news, U.S. 1 — aided in part by its door-to-door delivery system — reported on 82 companies that either down-sized, left town, or went out of business.

It was a difficult year but not impossible: Our reporters also noted 95 companies that were new in town or start-ups, and another 47 companies that had expanded in the year 2008. It’s these companies for the most part that are referenced in the listings below, sorted by industry category.
