"We are pleased that Teledyne Oil and Gas is cementing its presence in Florida with the formation of its global headquarters in Daytona Beach. The new operations also will strengthen our R&D sector as well as provide welcome job opportunities to Floridians," said Governor Rick Scott.
According to Volusia County Economic Development Director Phil Ehlinger, the company chose Daytona Beach because it provides the advantage of coordinating all cross-functional support including management, finance, human resources, contract administration, import and export administration, engineering, research and development, project management and quality assurance.
"Daytona Beach is excited to have Teledyne expand in our city," said Emory Counts, Daytona Beach's economic and community development director. They are a significant corporate and community partner. It is also important to note that the city and the county worked together seamlessly with Enterprise Florida and the state to help make it happen."
As an incentive to persuade the firm to establish its research and development center in Daytona Beach, Florida and Volusia County offered a package with an estimated value of $1.4 million that includes tax abatement credits based on job creation.
