Northfield is an excellent option if you are conisdering relocating your business. The two companies below recently have moved to Northfield and shared their experiences:
“The city agreed to help our company obtain tax benefits through the state’s Job Opportunity Building Zones (JOBZ) program, as well as other large financial incentives. I had initially looked at Northfield because that was where I attended St. Olaf College, however business considerations sealed the deal. We looked at a half-dozen other Minnesotan towns, but Northfield’s technological infrastructure, quality of life, and dedicated economic development partners made it all take place.”
Perkins Specialized Transportation Contracting’s mission is to extend the value of their customers’ products and services throughout North America by providing professional long distance highway transportation and rigging services for heavy, oversize and time-critical shipments and projects.
Neil Perkins, President of Perkins Specialized Transportation Contracting, spoke of Northfield’s commitment to supporting economic development:
“The city staff was great to work with. They seemed very excited about getting our business to move to Northfield, and I doubt there was much more they could have done to make it an easier decision. The building was in the JOBZ program, and I met with the city to investigate what that would mean to me as a business owner. After spending some time exploring the city, it became obvious that this would also be a great place to live. Thankfully everything came together and we now live and work in the community. Our business could have located anywhere in the Midwest, but we’re glad the community was so helpful in making it happen, and we enjoy living here.”
