Among the many considerations of selecting a site for a new corporate headquarter or manufacturing hub, our clients’ tend to focus upon the following key decision drivers: access to qualified labor; proximity (physical and logistical) to customers, supply chain efficiencies, quality of life consideration; available real estate; and the size of the incentive package.
While elected officials, municipalities, and states, eager to secure corporate capital investment and new jobs, are quick to advertise their location as an ideal fit, corporate stakeholders often find it difficult to quantify the financial impact of choosing one location over another, to fairly compare incentive packages, often paid over many years, and – most importantly- to ensure promised incentives are collected.
