Thinking of Relocating Your Business?

When a community has a thriving economy, business benefits. The Palm Bay Chamber works closely with the city of Palm Bay’s economic development office as well as the Space Coast EDC to help build our business structure. If you are considering moving to Palm Bay, West Melbourne, Malabar, or Grant-Valkaria, give us a call as all of these cities are members of our chamber and we can put you in touch with the right people.

The Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast (EDC) serves as the single point of contact to help your company understand and access all the financial benefits of a Florida location, including Florida state and local incentives.

The EDC works closely with our economic development partners at the State of Florida (Enterprise Florida), Space Florida and the various local jurisdictions in the Space Coast region.  Your project will be assigned a specific Project Manager with business expertise in your industry area.  Working on a confidential basis, the Project Manager assigned to your project will:

  • Craft a comprehensive and aggressive incentive package
  • Work to ensure that all statutory avenues available to lower ALL business taxes and other costs are known and effectively applied for the benefit of your project
  • Assist in the preparation of incentive application forms and manage the process

Incentives are granted on a case-by-case basis with industry type, quality of wages, capital investment and location of the project being some of the significant deciding factors.

To request a customized Florida state and local incentive analysis today, contact Gregory J. Weiner, Senior Director, Business Development at 1.800.535.0203 or by email at gweiner@SpaceCoastEDC.org.
