In cooperation with its Kentucky Crossroads partners, Team Taylor County was prominently positioned to discuss the community’s business advantages to dozens of the state’s leading real estate advisors during a networking luncheon held in the fall.
Boasting a 173-acre certified Build-Ready site in the Heartland Commerce and Technology Park, Taylor County’s message to the group focused on the quality of the workforce, site preparedness, available industrial buildings and the overall business-friendly approach government and economic development leaders use to assist the business community.
“Getting the Team Taylor County name in front of those that represent companies in their site selection process is an important part of our outreach,” said Ron McMahan, executive director of Team Taylor County. “We’ve got tremendous growth potential and our ability to create and strengthen relationships with those actively engaged in creating new business opportunities will help generate immediate and long-term prospects.”
Comprised of Anderson, Boyle, Casey, Garrard, Lincoln, Marion, Mercer, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Taylor and Washington counties, Kentucky Crossroads collaboratively markets the region as a business destination for new and expanding industries. The partnership has resulted in more than 4,500 new jobs and $1.7 billion in new investments over the past five years.
