Lenoir, NC (PressExposure) October 01, 2008 -- In addition to attracting out-of-state businesses to Caldwell County NC with economic development grants, NC relocation incentives and business relocation services, Caldwell Economic Development Commission is helping local businesses take advantage of existing resources in their own backyard with Project Homefront, a comprehensive business retention expansion program.
Previously done by volunteers, Project Homefront garners the talents of the staff of the Commission and the Chamber of Commerce to visit with 2,000 businesses in Caldwell County NC and find out if any of their needs or problems, such as supply chain issues, can be solved by neighboring businesses.
"Our goal," explained Alan Wood, the commission's senior development manager, "is to help businesses run efficiently by taking advantage of local resources whenever possible. This scenario leads to economic growth and more jobs, thereby increasing North Carolina employment figures."
