Radius Indiana Connects with South Carolina

3/1/2017 12:00:00 AM

Bedford, Ind. (Feb 27, 2017) — Radius Indiana and a representative from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation traveled to Greenville, S.C. last week to meet with site selectors and share the advantages of doing business in the Radius region. The organization is continuing its successful outreach program that began last year.
This is the second visit in a series of economic development trips that Radius has planned for 2017 and the first trip for Radius to South Carolina. Ensuring decision makers know about the area’s offerings is a primary focus for Radius Indiana, the regional partnership representing Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, and Washington Counties.
IEDC Regional Director Trevor Lane joined Radius Indiana President and CEO Jeff Quyle on the visit to meet with nine site selectors who work with industrial clients, including many that are part of the auto industry. The site selectors report an increase in projects coming through the pipeline, many of which include foreign investments considering the U.S. as a place to expand or locate operations.
Quyle and Lane learned that while most of the South Carolina-based site selectors had familiarity with Indiana, many did not know the Radius Indiana region specifically. The pair took the opportunity to discuss the region’s competitive advantages including the I-69 corridor, Naval Support Activity Crane and New Market Tax Credit eligibility. They also explained the area’s pro-manufacturing culture with an emphasis on advanced manufacturing, and Radius’ ongoing collaboration with Regional Opportunity Initiatives Inc., the 11-county consortium for the region focused on education, workforce programs and quality-of-place investments.
"The chance to open new doors is always good for our Radius communities. We heard positive feedback about the efforts our region is making to collaborate with groups such as the Regional Opportunity Initiatives and its workforce development programs. These folks now know a little more about our region, and we'll continue to build a relationship with them so that our part of Indiana becomes a place they will advise clients on in the future,” said Quyle.
Radius Indiana will partner with the IEDC and Local Economic Development Organizations from the region’s respective counties for future visits in Indiana and other states across the country.
