“Their fluid and flexible approach helped us to reachour project goals and timelines during our multi-state evaluationof sites for a new manufacturing facilitY.”

“Strategic Development Group truly understood that our project needs were evolving. Their fluid and flexible approach helped us to reach our project goals and timelines during our multi-state evaluation of sites for a new manufacturing facility in New Castle, Indiana. SDG’s ability to present concise summaries of site conditions, development costs, incentives and recommendations were critical for our management’s ability to make a final site location decision.”
