Belcan Expands Operations in Palm Beach County, Florida

Belcan, a global supplier of engineering, technical recruiting and IT services, will expand operations in Palm Beach County, Florida. The company plans to create 200 new jobs. The company currently employs approximately 600 Floridians throughout the state. This expansion will be an investment of over $3 million in the Palm Beach County community.

Belcan CEO Lance Kwasniewski said, “Belcan is extremely pleased to be expanding our regional presence and extending our long-term commitment to the great state of Florida. The thriving business climate created by the state and local governments, along with the outstanding universities and excellent infrastructure, are among the key factors contributing to the success of this area. We look forward to continuing Belcan’s rapid growth while creating an enjoyable environment for our employees and further enhancing the region’s economic development.”

This expansion project was made possible by partnerships with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Business Development Board of Palm Beach County and Enterprise Florida.

Governor Rick Scott said, “It was great to join the team at Belcan to announce 200 new jobs for families in Palm Beach County. Companies like Belcan continue to grow and create jobs in our state thanks to our efforts to cut taxes and reduce burdensome regulations. By investing in public infrastructure projects and job training with the $85 million Florida Job Growth Grant Fund, we can ensure Florida remains competitive and create opportunities for generations to come.”

Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Cissy Proctor said, “I am proud that Belcan is expanding in the Sunshine State. This international company could choose to grow jobs in any other state or country around the world. Florida’s competitive business environment and low tax structure help support expansions like Belcan’s, and this growth will help families across Palm Beach County continue to prosper.”

Business Development Board of Palm Beach County President & CEO Kelly Smallridge said, “Belcan’s expansion is proof that Palm Beach County is a great place to grow businesses and jobs. Our county is home to 1300 aviation/aerospace companies that employ 17,000 at an average salary of $90,000. We appreciate the support of Palm Beach County’s Board of County Commissioners and the City of West Palm Beach in bringing this project to fruition.”

Director of Economic Development for Florida Power & Light Company and Enterprise Florida board member Crystal Stiles said, “Belcan is a great example of job creation in Florida. Florida has one of the best economic development systems in the country comprised of dedicated individuals who work hard every day to make Florida one of the best places for business. The 200 new jobs being created by Belcan are another example of growth that is happening all around our state.”
