Economic Development Testimonials

We have worked with Site Location Partnership for the last few years with great success. Their services have yielded two quality projects that located to our community. The first was a plastics manufacturing company, and the second was a manufacturer of transportation equipment for the wind energy industry. SLP has a proven track record of delivering measurable results with an unmatched return on investment. I highly recommend their services to any community seeking assistance with lead generation for economic development.

Working with Site Location Partnership has provided us with a valuable opportunity to strengthen our targeted marketing strategy and maximize our investment. The team at SLP works directly with our staff to achieve the highest level of support for our business attraction initiatives. In dealing with other site selection and economic development consulting firms, we have not received the professional services, expertise and guidance that we have from SLP. We have recently renewed our contract with SLP and look forward to continuing this very productive working relationship.

We are very pleased to announce our contract renewal with Site Location Partnership. We have found SLP to be a cost effective and efficient partner in expanding our business recruitment efforts. With limited resources, it has been imperative to find new avenues to access corporate location projects across the country. SLP’s expertise has provided us several opportunities with great exposure to growing businesses and other site consulting firms. With SLP's assistance, we have developed a much more focused approach to our target industries.

Site Location Partnership has played a vital role in the ongoing efforts of our organization. I have found them to be one of the most innovative, forward-thinking companies we have dealt with and I certainly view them as market leaders from this perspective. We are very pleased with their work in aggressively recruiting targeted industries on our behalf, facilitating meetings for us with other site selectors, and enhancing our web presence. We are confident that SLP will continue to guide us in a positive direction and look forward to continued success in the years to come.

We appreciate our relationship with SLP and their very thorough approach to generating new prospects for our organization. They have proven to be a cost-effective way to gain exposure for our county across a wide range of industries. By utilizing SLP for our business recruitment activities, we are able to reach a much larger audience than we could possibly access on our own. They also provide us with representation at several trade shows each year - visibility that our limited resources would not allow us to attain on our own. Working with SLP has been a good investment for our organization.

As we look to expand our target markets, we realize that other economic development organizations nationwide are becoming even more aggressive in their business recruitment. With limited staff and funding, we need to get the biggest bang for our buck. Our investment with SLP has paid off in terms of developing stronger relationships with site consultants and targeting industry sectors such as alternative energy, life sciences, and aviation.

I have known and worked with SLP’s CEO for over six years now. The SLP staff knows the business, has the contacts, and has always come through for me in regards to identifying projects and initiating one-on-ones. This has presented immense value and has resulted in me making contact with targeted prospects, site consultants and industry leaders that I may not have otherwise had the chance to connect with on such a personal level.

When we evaluated how to best leverage our economic development dollars to increase visibility and heighten awareness among the decision makers in corporate expansion and relocation, Site Location Partnership’s comprehensive service programs stood out above the rest.

SLP offers us a great avenue with the resources to build and nurture the types of relationships that translate into results for our community.

Site Location Partnership helps us market the new brand for Iowa’s Creative Corridor through engagement with companies considering expansion and relocation. They also augment our region’s current recruitment efforts by providing more opportunities for exposure to advanced manufacturers and other companies at major trade shows across the nation. This helps eliminate excess travel costs and lost staff time so we can focus on our clients and investors locally, while still marketing the region externally. SLP saves us time, energy and money.

Site Location Partnership continues to play a huge role in our marketing efforts for the Missouri CORE region. SLP allows us to leverage our scarce resources and gain exposure to target industries that best fit the strengths of our region, such as food processing, automotive manufacturing, and life sciences. They also provide us with valuable opportunities to meet with their established network of site selection consultants in various markets, and gain insight into the current projects that they are working on.

When the opportunity to work with Site Location Partnership came along, we jumped on it. In years past, we would place a print ad in a variety of site magazines. It was a good way of getting our name out there, but we’d never really get to talk to people face-to-face. SLP’s services are so much more aggressive. We’re now out there talking to site selectors instead of just running an ad and hoping somebody calls. We plant those seeds and develop those relationships. It really does work. Plus, the annual cost of our investment with SLP is less than what we used to pay for just one print ad.

When Carroll County decided to expand its business attraction marketing ahead of the completion of the Hoosier Heartland Highway, Site Location Partnership was the logical choice to assist our organization.

The Carroll County Economic Development Corporation is very pleased and optimistic of our partnership with SLP. We look forward to a long and successful working relationship.

We've been able to carry our marketing message into new areas - and do it effectively - thanks to the consultants at Site Location Partnership. They’ve represented Lee County at several trade shows and have always been there to offer valuable advice, provide networking opportunities and help us develop contacts with prospects. Best of all, the firm has always been accessible, responsive and affordable. That's particularly important given the tight budgets we're all facing.

Our relationship with Site Location Partnership has proven to be a good investment. Elkhorn Valley Economic Development Council represents three counties in Northeast Nebraska and our staff struggles to keep up with day-to-day activities. SLP enables us to continue to get our name in front of decision makers and also provides a great opportunity for us to network with site consultants across the country. It is a valuable partnership that I definitely see continuing into the future.
