Silverlode has led site selection projects for some of the largest companies in the world, helping them make informed, data-driven location decisions that support their bottom line. We have completed more than 200 projects in 32 states across a wide variety of industry sectors.
We manage the full spectrum of location decisions, from planning and strategy development through implementation. The earlier we can be plugged into your facility decision process, the more fruitful a solution we can provide. We work as an extension of your team to carefully plan and craft an effective strategy to assess and filter location options.
An investment in our site selection expertise will enable you to mitigate the risks of unforeseen location issues, maintain confidentiality or anonymity, meet timelines, and minimize the time spent by your personnel. Our fee-based approach ensures that our findings are not affected by the availability of incentives or a real estate commission.
Silverlode has secured over $1 billion of economic and tax incentives value for clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to start-ups. Silverlode orchestrates the incentives process from identification of opportunities to leveraged negotiations, to acquisition and compliance.
Remarkably, 60% of companies don't claim the full value of incentives awarded (100% of those companies are not Silverlode clients.) Our unique life cycle approach ensures that your company will not only secure valuable state and local tax credits and financial incentive opportunities, but that we will manage the process until you ultimately realize their full value.
Most companies don’t recognize when they're eligible for financial incentives. That's your incentive to contact us.
