Doing business in the region is easy, because our counties recognize the importance of a healthy business community. We take a collaborative partnership approach that builds connections between government, education, community stakeholders, existing businesses, utilities, and local workers.

We invite you to talk with companies and and industry that do business here, because we want you to hear what they say about our local workforce and community incentives. If you’ve been challenged elsewhere by a insufficient supply of employees, inadequate skills, or anti-business attitudes, you’ll find the region to be refreshing. Our residents take pride in the work they do, and they’re proud of their contributions to their employers’ successes.

In addition to the many advantages of doing business in the region, each of our counties and states offers a variety of unique incentives that are created to reward companies for making investments and creating jobs in our area. Many of those programs can be customized specifically for the needs of your business.
