Posted on Jul 26, 2013

The new homepage of the Grant County EDC website.
The Grant County EDC’s website recently underwent a makeover to include many new features. There are now tabs that identify key industries in Grant County, success stories that highlight EDC  accomplishments, and a GIS mapping center that allows visitors access to demographic information on Grant County.

As internet information is utilized more, site selectors, developers and companies have a greater amount of information at their fingertips. This allows them to create a short list of locations more quickly and efficiently. The new website is a place for these entities to gather the information they need about Grant County.  

Under the Key Industries tab visitors get an in depth look at the clusters in the area. The highlighted industries are: Aerospace, Ag/Food Processing, Data Centers, Manufacturing and Retail. Information is included for each industry describing the industry’s history, current businesses, logistics, workforce training, incentives and assets located within the county, such as electric costs or available infrastructure.

The Success Stories highlight the new developments Grant County has seen over the years. “We have so many growing businesses in Grant County,” said Jonathan Smith, Executive Director of the EDC, “this is a way to get the word out about our diversified economy and show how the county continues to grow.”

The Small Business Research Tool allows visitors to identify a Grant County address and pull up detailed demographic information specific to that location. Some of the demographic information available includes: current population, age and gender of the population, retail market place information, consumer spending, household income and much more. In addition, the Interactive Map Center uploads available commercial properties from the North West MLS.

With all this information plus community profiles, workforce development and cost of living data, the new Grant County EDC website is a one stop location for business data.
