Using the County’s existing target industries, Whittaker Associates helped our client develop and implement a marketing plan. The geographical advantages of the County, located between Atlanta and the ports of Savannah and Brunswick, allowed us to focus on industrial sectors that would benefit from their location. Whittaker Associates identified target companies within their selected industries whose needs could be met by the County’s resources and that also exhibited characteristics of firms likely to expand or relocate based on events taking place within the company and/or its business environment. Our efforts have resulted in 22 suspects and one project. We also provided our client with a list of site location consultants that produced significant results and new business opportunities.
