In 2011, O’Neal provided EPC delivery of a $235 million grassroots facility for Mitsubishi Electric Power Products (MEPPI). Leading site selection and incentive negotiation services were two principals from McCallum Sweeney Consulting, Kim Davis and Lindsey Cannon. Their efforts led to a site that met MEPPI’s criteria and netted a reported $34 million in incentives.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has swept throughout the United States, the entire business landscape has been disrupted. Delaware Prosperity Partnership, however, is continuing its work to attract, grow and retain companies, build a stronger entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem and support private employers in identifying, recruiting and developing talent throughout Delaware. Part of DPP’s work involves engaging with representatives from various sectors of the economic development arena to discuss how the crisis is affecting what they do and what the disruption means to Delaware.
As technology continues to drive a wave of disruption across the site selection industry and economic headwinds loom on the horizon, it has become more important than ever for corporates to engage economic development organizations (EDOs) that have a firm understanding of the businesses, local governments and communities that they represent.
