A facility expansion, consolidation or relocation can be complicated and stressful for
those in your company responsible for the planning. Also, the effort represents
a significant financial and logistical commitment. When done effectively it will result in
opportunities for future growth, lower costs, productivity gains, and a higher ROI.
Joe Vranich and his associates work to find the best location, negotiate applicable incentives, save time, and facilitate construction and development to meet your unique requirements. Capabilities extend to industries in all 50 states and also Mexico, South America and Asia.
Contact is made with state and local economic development officials through Requests for Information and Requests for Proposals (the identity of the company is kept confidential) in order to identify potentially optimal locations.
When it's clear which communities are preferred, the process of incentives qualification and negotiation begins if the company qualifies. Only late in the process is the company’s identity revealed to the agency on a need-to-know basis, and even then agencies are required to sign non-disclosure agreements. Ultimately, two or three finalist locations will be presented to the client along with incentives packages.
What Sets Us Apart
We are un-biased. Unlike other providers, we offer a completely independent approach. Joe does not represent any economic development agencies or real estate owners, only companies. Hence, the team conducts site searches without a conflict of interest or bias toward any nation, state, county, municipality, site or building.
The team includes experts from the ranks of economic development agencies who have crafted incentive programs and understand grants, loans, tax forgiveness, and other financing available for development projects.
