Business Retention and Expansion

An overwhelming majority of new sector employment and investment is created by existing businesses expanding. Despite this, why are business retention and expansion (BRE) programs often underutilized or overlooked. In a post-pandemic world, BRE has never been more critical and we’re here to help.

    Marketing Planning

    The wrong decision can set a company back for a long time, or even threaten its existence. Companies that use site selection firms are at a distinct advantage to those who go it alone.

    Location Services

    • Site Location Strategies: As a result of growth and diversification, many of our clients look to expand to new territories and/or acquire other businesses with their own set of real estate assets. We help determine the optimal locations for your manufacturing, office, research and distribution functions throughout the United States, as well as negotiate incentives on your behalf.
    • Supply Chain Strategies: Every product line has a discrete set of interlocking supply chains that enable that product to be created at max efficiencies. Supply chain optimization is a key factor in realizing full growth potential for a company, and deficiencies within the supply chain can be a key constraint or barrier to company growth. Ady Advantage creates strategies for your company to optimize its supply chains.
