Programs in this regard are undertaken independently or in conjunction with lower tier development department partners or individual municipalities. The focus of these initiatives is related to industrial/business sectors within the County.
Several databases are maintained ranging from business directories to demographics, available properties and recent news. Custom research for specific information required by site selectors can be handled quickly by available research staff.
