“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.”
