The key to any relocation plan is making sure the community is a good fit.
Finding qualified employees and identifying ancillary support businesses are crucial to a company’s success. Equally important is ensuring that the community has the social, cultural and recreational amenities to provide for a high quality of life.
Why Melbourne, Fla.?
The region’s high-tech work force has been ranked as one of the best in the nation. The airport’s recent successes in luring major aviation manufacturing and repair operations over a number of strong competitors are testament to that.
The area boasts a qualified and available work force to fill positions in several industry clusters including cutting-edge communications, electronics, aerospace, advanced security and emerging technologies.
Melbourne also has the kinds of ancillary businesses that support major industries. Machine shops, custom specialty metal stock and fabricators, software designers, specialized engineering support and more are readily available.
Local business owners understand the benefits of a symbiotic relationship and are ready to provide relocation assistance, discounted hotel stays, favorable mortgage rates and competitive moving rates for companies entering the market.
Melbourne and the Space Coast also offer a quality of life where employees can thrive. The region has an impressive diversity in cultural and recreational offerings. The area is home to a symphony orchestra, a ballet company and live theater, plus art, history and natural science museums.
In addition to the outdoor activities for which Florida is world-famous — golf, fishing, surfing — the region has other family friendly amenities, such as the award-winning Brevard Zoo, Canaveral National Seashore, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and historic Kennedy Space Center. Organized sports leagues are plentiful for adults and children through the Brevard County and Melbourne recreation departments.
