Overview

  • Selecting the Optimal Location for:

    • Office

    • Manufacturing

    • Distribution

What are “Site Selection Services”?

  • Site Selection services help companies select the best location for a new or relocated facility to achieve corporate goals and objectives

  • Site Selection Services are often needed when:

    • The client is entering new markets and needs to identify the best location

    • When operating costs or operating conditions deteriorate at existing locations

    • When consolidating multiple facilities or operations

    • When business conditions dictate the need for expansion
