Expand Manufacturing in the U.S., Where to Locate?
The world’s second largest earth moving equipment manufacturer desired to compete more efficiently in the United States. With worthy opponents in the U.S. nipping at their heels, the corporation commissioned Agracel to find the ideal site for a backhoe loader manufacturing plant. The manufacturer’s site requirements included labor, economics, climate and quality of life factors. The coordinated search entailed site evaluation, incentives negotiation and building and site plan development. Searching more than twenty states and fifty cities, Agracel successfully located the $20 million production facility in Newberry, SC.
