Why NKY for Site Selection?
Site Selection for Businesses from Near and Far
For more than 35 years, BE NKY Growth Partnership has led successful site selection for relocation or expansion efforts for 765 business projects, representing more than 74,150 primary industry jobs created with a capital investment of more than $9.3 billion.
Powerhouse American and international companies across industry sectors from Advanced Manufacturing, Supply Chain Management and Support Services, Life Sciences, and Information Technology, have undertaken thorough site selection processes and chosen to locate in Northern Kentucky, including ADM, Amazon, Bosch, Citi, CTI Clinical Trial and Consulting, DHL, and Mubea.
Site selection support and value are not reserved for just the largest organizations. Our region is also known as a highly desirable, yet largely untapped, location for entrepreneurs. With a culture of “makers” and a strong start-up community, Northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati region are rich with “starter” site selection opportunities for new and growing businesses.
Key Considerations in the Site Selection Decision
Whether it’s the state of the business environment including taxes, access to a strong workforce, availability of transportation or a strong utility infrastructure; much needed incentives and opportunities; or a great place to live and work, you consider the options from every angle when you’re evaluating a location for site selection.
Northern Kentucky and the Cincinnati region have all the bases covered, and BE NKY does all we can to make it easy for you to make your site selection effort seamless. Click on the pages linked below for much more information on each topic.
