Moving is never easy, but when it makes good business sense, its worth the short-term hassles.
Athens County offers tax abatements and low-interest loans to make relocating your business financially rewarding. Our elected officials and community leaders actively support business development and investment. Were ready to roll out the red carpet for you because, well, were friendly people. And we understand that your business brings jobs and revenue into our community.
The Athens County Economic Development Council will work with you every step of the way, from the search for your new location until you are settled in, up and running. The EDC has a number of strategic partnerships in place to help your business locate (1) available land or buildings, (2) financial resources and (3) development incentives.
If your business is currently located outside Ohio, you may want to start the relocation process with a little online research. We recommend a quick trip to the Ohio Department of Developments 1st Stop Business Connection. The Web site will walk you through 6 easy steps. Youll answer basic questions about your business and then be able to download your free, customized information kit with all the forms you need to establish your Ohio-based business.
But, if you want immediate assistance, please review our economic development resources and call Todd Shelton at 740/597-1420.
