Corporate Survey Analysis by Darin Buelow
It is interesting to see state and local incentives and tax exemptions slip somewhat in importance in the 2007 survey versus the 2006 results; I would view this as an indicator that more companies are looking at the underlying location attributes and advantages rather than incentives as a driving factor.
Also interesting to note is the large jump in respondents who viewed proximity to suppliers as important. This is consistent with what we are seeing from manufacturers as more pressure is exerted to reduce supply-chain costs and minimize inventory through just-in-time management practices.
