Our team at Ady Advantage is your source for economic development growth and diversification, whether you are a state, region, utility, or local EDO. We know how to assess and diagnose whatever issues you are facing, and develop solutions that work, whether it involves training, a rigorous economic analysis and plan, or a fresh approach to marketing your area.

And if you are a company looking to grow, diversify, expand, or relocate, we can help you with a range of programs from site selection to related topics such as talent recruitment strategies and the effects of automation on your industry and company.


Site Selection

Where and how you expand or contract your company’s geographic footprint is one of the most critical decisions that your company will face. With access to numerous databases and proprietary techniques in addition to decades of experience with projects across sectors, Ady Advantage can identify locations, evaluate real estate options, and negotiate incentives on your behalf.
