County Business Development Group Celebrates 25 Years Boosting Local Economy
A private-public partnership that’s helped facilitate more than $1.5 billion in industrial investment within the Johnson County since 1991 is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
According to the Daily Journal, the Johnson County Development Corp. has been an economic engine for Greenwood and other towns in the county since it opened in 1991, helping the county double private sector jobs over that time.
Today, the group’s staff works closely with site selectors to choose an ideal location for a business, according to the article, offering comprehensive research about potential customers and workforce in the area. To help work out economic incentives, the corporation works as a liaison between businesses and government, the article said.
Thanks to its efforts, in the last decade, nearly 40 companies have relocated in Johnson County, and another 45 local firms have expanded their existing businesses, the article said.
