Business Location Drivers
  • Rising shipping costs, particularly for sectors
    that must transport massive machines, will see
    many firms investing in plants closer to the
  • Finding the right work force will play an equally
    important role
  • Factories now need highly trained workers
    decisions could hinge on a state of localitys
    commitment to work force training
  • New York State and St. Louis region are two areas
    that have made a significant commitment to the
    type of technical workforce training initiatives
    that machining and equipment manufacturing firms
    will need n the 21st center

Sources, On the Rebound,
March 2005
Advanced Automotive has been identified as the
new sector, defining an industry not by what is
made but how it is made. This new advanced
automotive sector is defined by hundreds of
advanced technology initiatives in energy, safety
and materials that improve vehicle quality,
safety and extend longevity.
  • Pinpointed as one of the Presidents High Growth
    Employment Industries
  • Employment is expected to grow more rapidly in
    firms that manufacture motor vehicle parts,
    bodies and trailers than in firms that make
    complete vehicles
  • Creates 6.6 million direct and spin-off jobs.
    For every worker directly employed by an
    automaker, nearly 7 spin-off jobs are created

Common Characteristics of Winning Organizations
in attracting business
  • Every winning agency used a state of the art
  • On-line databases of available buildings and
  • Work-force training initiatives moved to the top
    of the to do list
  • The ability to quantify and deliver a trained
    work force in specialized skill-set categories
  • Partnerships The ability to bring together
    diverse groups under one effort to market and
    promote a geographical area won more projects
    than stand-alone cities and counties

Without the region as a whole, we wouldnt be
where we are today. Creating new jobs and
investing capital investment in our community
takes a cooperative effort on behalf of local
governments, businesses and citizens. Melanie
