BLS & Co. Was a Proud Exhibit Sponsor of The 2017 SelectUSA Investment Summit

June 17, 2017

Interested in setting up or expanding operations in the US? Thinking of bringing your manufacturing operation to the US? 

The United States has become a more competitive destination for foreign direct investment due in part to:

  • Rising labor costs in many developing countries combined with slower wage growth in the U.S.;
  • Lengthening supply chains and increasing costs to ship products to North America;
  • The increasing importance of speed-to-market for consumer products;
  • Growing demand for products “Made in the USA;” and
  • A heightened focus on risk minimization

While these and other trends are driving new U.S. market investment; companies that are unfamiliar with the social, economic, geographic, regulatory and political complexities involved with choosing a best U.S. location can find themselves very quickly overwhelmed.

Biggins Lacy Shapiro & Co (BLS & Co) is devoted to bringing clarity to the business location decision-making process, with a particular emphasis on the 22,500 cities and towns, 3,000 counties and fifty states that comprise the United States.   Our team of experienced professionals can help you identify, evaluate and select the optimal location for your operation and negotiate and secure useful and meaningful state and local tax credits and other business incentives.

Whether to reshore or nearshore an operation to the U.S. maintains a complex proposition. As experts in the field of site selection throughout North America, BLS & Co principals have authored numerous resource materials and articles relating to trends in foreign direct investment, reshoring, and site selection in the U.S.:
