PALM BEACH COUNTY MAYOR,

STEVEN ABRAMS PALM BEACH COUNTY’S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY IS FLOURISHING THANKS TO ITS COMMITMENT TO OFFER A VARIETY OF FINANCIAL INCENTIVES AND FACILITATE PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS.

Combined with an optimum location and climate, the community has become the destination of choice for business relocations and expansions. Cluster industries of biotechnology, aviation and aerospace, financial and professional services, manufacturing, and corporate headquarters are experiencing significant growth marked by recent milestones which include:  Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, where the talents of world-renowned scientists are collaborating on cutting-edge technology in the field of neuroscience and helping to enrich science education programs at all grade levels including the training of a future bioscience workforce.  Pratt & Whitney is investing $63 million for the expansion of the Florida Engine Delivery Center for commercial aircraft engine production yielding 230 new high-wage jobs.  Digital Risk, a mortgage underwriter, is expanding in Boca Raton and will creat up to 600 jobs.  ADT, an electronic security services company, is retrofitting 175,000-square-feet in Boca Raton for its new headquarters, retaining 260 jobs and creating 120 new jobs.  Schomburg Latin America, LLC, an international manufacturer and distributor of construction chemicals, opened a new plant in Riviera Beach to produce grouts, tile adhesives and mortars for distribution to Latin American, Caribbean and U.S. markets.  Oxygen Development, LLC, a global supplier of color cosmetics, skin care, and over-the-counter drug products, opened a new manufacturing plant in the village of Palm Springs, employing more than 500. It is projected that the manufacturing and financial services projects will have a combined, five-year economic impact of more than $1.4 billion on the local economy. In 2012, more than $15 billion in international trade revenue was generated in Palm Beach County, largely through manufacturing and wholesale trade. To encourage and attract further international trade and investment, the County is working with the Port of Palm Beach in efforts to achieve an Alternate Site Framework (ASF) for Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) 135, which would expand the benefits of FTZ designation to companies county-wide and would shorten the process for activation. Benefits include the deferral, reduction, or elimination of Customs duties on foreign products admitted into zones for storage, exhibition, assembly, manufacture, and processing. The new ASF-FTZ will serve companies based on their traderelated needs, rather than by geographic location. Additionally, with assistance from county incentive and low-interest financing programs, small business growth continues to help drive economic prosperity throughout Palm Beach County. I look forward to the work ahead to support continued, sustainable economic development and job creation.

HealthGrades, the nation’s leading independent healthcare ratings organization, has named Boca Raton Hospital a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence™ for the eighth year in a row. This prestigious distinction places

Boca Raton Regional Hospital among the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for clinical performance. (HealthGrades Hospital Ratings, February 2012) Palm Beach County ranks among the best places to operate a bioscience research and development facility. According to a 2010 study by location consulting firm The Boyd Company, Inc., Palm Beach County rates favorably with its low total annual operating costs when compared to 35 cities in the U.S. and Canada. Palm Tran, Palm Beach County’s public transportation system, was the recipient of several honors at the 2012 Annual Conference of the Florida Public Transportation Association (FPTA) including first-place “Unit Safety Award” for transit systems operating more than 100 buses. This is the third consecutive year that Palm Tran has been recognized by its peers as having the safest transit system in the state. Palm Beach County was officially recognized as a SilverLevel Certified Green Local Government by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC). Silver-level certification confirms the county’s commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability in the areas of energy, water, air, and waste management.

FLORIDA’S NEW BUSINESS BRAND “Florida. The Perfect Climate for Business.” That’s the powerful tagline for the state's first-ever business brand introduced in January 2013. The brand reflects the state’s many business attributes, such as no personal income tax, a platform built for global trade, and a top national ranking for workforce, transportation infrastructure to enhance the state’s competitiveness and credibility as a leading business destination.

PALM BEACH C O U N T Y

QUICK FACTS Palm Beach County’s strategic location is ideal for trade, as it is centrally located between Miami and Orlando, and within easy reach of all of the major air and sea ports in the state of Florida. Palm Beach County is part of the Miami Customs District, utilized by much of Latin America and the Caribbean as the first destination for goods to be distributed to the rest of the United States and Europe, and vice versa. The Port of Palm Beach is the fourth-busiest container port of Florida’s 14 deepwater ports, and is the 18th-busiest container port in the United States. In fiscal year 2010, the port moved over 213,000 20-foot container units. Palm Beach County has a state-of-the-art transportation and logistics system that is comprised of an international airport (Palm Beach International) with an integral Federal Inspection Facility, and a seaport with a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ #135). These ports have easy access to the Florida Turnpike and Interstate 95, along with two major railways (FEC and CSX). Palm Beach International Airport (PBIA), centrally located in West Palm Beach and easily accessible from I-95, is one of the largest medium-hub airports in the United States. On average, about 6 million people a year pass through PBIA. At 2,578 square miles in total area, Palm Beach County is the largest county in Florida and the third most populous among Florida’s 67 counties. The population is estimated at nearly 1.3 million. Population increased approximately 3.1% annually from 1990 through 2000, compared to double and triple that rate in the 1980s. The area’s projected population for the year 2014 is over 1.33 million. Palm Beach County is the national leader in the production of sugar and fresh sweet corn, and is also Florida’s leading producer of rice, bell peppers, lettuce, radishes, Chinese vegetables, specialty leaf and celery. Palm Beach County is one of the only counties in Florida awarded “AAA” bond ratings by Fitch, Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s. Palm Beach County‘s Parks and Recreation Department operates 79 parks, including two water parks. County parks include more than 8,000 acres of land for residents and guests to explore. The Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management manages 35 natural areas encompassing more than 30,000 acres of environmentally sensitive lands. Palm Beach County is often referred to as “The Golf Capital of the World™” with more than 150 public and private golf courses. It is the Spring Training home of the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals, who train at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter.

Education Week recognized the School District of Palm Beach County as having the second highest graduation rates in the state, exceeding the state average, and eighth-best in the nation: 79.8%. (Official Florida Department of Education Graduation Rate-2010-2011)

ON THE HORIZON

Construction began in early 2013 on Palm Beach Outlets, a major retail development at I-95 and Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard in West Palm Beach. Located on the site of the former Palm Beach Mall, the new center will include 100 outlet stores in the central area of the 80-acre property and 10 big-box retailers along the interstate side of the development. An economic study found that project would create at least 249 construction jobs and employ 1,576 workers when the center opens in early 2014. New England Development and Eastern Real Estate LLC are developing Palm Beach Outlets, which will have more than 800,000 square feet of retail space. For three decades, the City of Riviera Beach has been considering how to transform its waterfront district into a gathering place for residents and tourists. Now, the city is ready to turn a long-term vision into reality. The city’s Community Redevelopment Agency recently unveiled a $29 million plan that includes renovating a waterfront park and community hall, creating a public market and constructing a boardwalk in order to attract private developers. The goal is to have the private sector develop a 10-block shopping and restaurant district with apartments and a hotel. In 2011, the CRA borrowed $26 million to pay for public projects along the waterfront with the balance coming from another loan or the CRA’s annual budget. If approved by the city council, construction could begin in early 2014. Florida East Coast Industries (FECI) is planning a privately owned and operated rail service called All Aboard Florida that will give business and leisure passengers a convenient, environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to travel between South and Central Florida. The route will provide passenger service along

the existing Florida East Coast Corridor between Miami and the Space Coast and the creation of new tracks into Central Florida. Stations are currently planned for downtown Miami, downtown Fort Lauderdale, downtown West Palm Beach and Orlando. Approximately 200 of the 230 miles of the needed right of way have already been obtained and FECI is moving ahead with other aspects of the plan. Pratt & Whitney, a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, industrial gas turbines and space propulsion systems, will add an additional 230 new jobs to its current workforce in Palm Beach County. The company plans to renovate 90,000 square feet of existing space and construct approximately 80,000 square feet of new space with an economic impact of $422.5 million. The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County plans to begin construction in April on a $670 million wasteto-energy (WTE) facility intended to produce bioenergy and reduce landfill capacity. The visually impressive, energy-efficient facility in West Palm Beach will be built north of the authority’s existing renewable energy facility, which is operating at capacity. The new plant will reduce the amount of waste currently being landfilled by up to 85 percent once the new plant is operational in 2015. The combined operation will produce enough energy to power approximately 80,000 homes and have advanced control technology to reduce emissions. The agency selected SCS Engineers to develop a greenhouse gas reduction plan, as well as carbon credit and Renewable Energy Credit management systems. The project is expected to create 325 construction jobs and employ 64 full-time workers when completed.

FROM INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, LIFE SCIENCES AND MANUFACTURING TO PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AND SECURITY, PALM BEACH COUNTY OFFERS A WARM WELCOME TO ALL TYPES OF CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS. AMONG THE REASONS: A DIVERSE POOL OF SKILLED WORKERS, A STRATEGIC LOCATION FOR REACHING DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL MARKETS, AN OUTSTANDING QUALITY OF LIFE, AND A SOLID SUPPLY OF COMMERCIAL OFFICE SPACE. A good example is The ADT Corporation, a leader in the electronic security, interactive home and business automation and alarm monitoring services industry in the U.S. and Canada. After completing its spinoff from Tyco International Ltd. last fall, ADT – with $3.1 billion in 2011 annual revenue and 6.4 million customers – opted to stay in Palm Beach County. “Ultimately, we chose to headquarter The ADT Corporation in Boca Raton because of the strong talent pool in South Florida and the quality of life this location offers our employees,” said Naren Gursahaney, CEO. Recently, ADT announced it will create 120 new jobs along with retaining 260 jobs in its 175,000-square-foot office building. Access to a high-quality workforce was an important factor for another international security company, The GEO Group, according to George C. Zoley, chairman and CEO. A leading provider of correctional detention, and residential treatment services with 108 facilities, approximately 75,000 beds, and 20,000 employees around the globe, GEO's headquarters are also located in Boca Raton. “Palm Beach County offers proximity to excellent schools, talented and educated professionals to employ, a diverse workforce that is culturally advantageous, and a location where our headquarters is within easy reach for a global company,” said Stephen Fuller, senior vice president of human resources. “We are proud of our ability to recruit and retain veterans of the armed forces, and about 15 percent of GEO’s U.S. workforce consists of veterans.”

A FAVORABLE BUSINESS CLIMATE AND DESIRABLE QUALITY OF LIFE ALL MAKE PALM BEACH COUNTY A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE, WORK AND PLAY.

Aerospace, information technology, energy and service companies also take advantage of Palm Beach County's business assets for corporate headquarters and regional offices. Among the long list of public and private companies are NextEra Energy whose subsidiaries are Florida Power & Light Company (FPL), which serves 4.5 million Florida customers, and NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, which together with its affiliated entities is the largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and sun in North America. “A favorable business climate and desirable quality of life all make Palm Beach County a great place to live, work and play,” said Eric Silagy, president, Florida Power & Light Company. “Our community has so much to offer our employees, their families and those who we’re trying to recruit – this is truly a wonderful place to grow your business.” Other leading Palm Beach County companies include Office Depot, FTI Consulting, TBC Corporation (Tire Kingdom), SBA Communications and Rybovich Yachts. For more than 20 years, B/E Aerospace, the world’s leading manufacturer of cabin interior products for commercial airliners and business jets, and the world’s leading distributor of aerospace fasteners and consumables has been based in Wellington. “Palm Beach County has an excellent quality of life and we are proud to be located here,” said Amin J. Khoury, chairman and CEO. In 2012, the company's revenues surpassed $3 billion and its market cap is in excess of $5 billion. “We have more than 9,500 employees globally with facilities located in several countries,” added Khoury, noting that B/E Aerospace has about 100 employees locally. Another longtime corporate resident is the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), which has been headquartered in Palm Beach County since 1986. “The quality of life and warm weather is a very strong draw for CEOs and bright talent alike.,” said Stephen J. Klingel, president and CEO. “The proximity to three major airports, and the availability of a diverse and talented pool of prospective employees has certainly contributed to the success we enjoy.” A business-to-business company in a highly specialized market, NCCI has maintained a stable environment for its national customers and nearly 1,000 employees over the past few years. From its 310,000-square-foot headquarters in

Boca Raton, NCCI provides a variety of data products to more than 900 insurance companies and nearly 40 state governments. “NCCI was recognized in 2012 as having one of the top wellness programs in South Florida,” added Klingel. “The wellness program is a win-win—savings for employees and the company, and healthier employees.” “The BDB understands what motivates companies to relocate, expand, and thrive in Palm Beach County,” added Klingel. “Its track record in attracting new enterprises to our community, especially in the industry clusters of the life sciences, corporate headquarters, IT and technical services, and entrepreneurial startups is impressive.” One of the newcomers is Radical Cosmetics, which has relocated its corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations from New Jersey to Lake Worth. Radical Cosmetics, which has approximately 40 employees, is recognized as one of the premier cosmetic contract manufacturers of pressed powders in the U.S. and a bulk cosmetic supplier of a variety of other cosmetic and beauty products. “The decision to relocate to the City of Lake Worth was based upon access to major highways and ports, and the affordable cost of doing business,” said Fenton Baijnath, CEO. “The City of Lake Worth and the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County had such a business-friendly attitude which was a refreshing change from past experience in other states.” To the north is Somahlution, a privately held development stage life science company focused on advancing the science of organ and surgical conduit transplantation. Somahlution has moved from Fargo, North Dakota, to a 13,000-square-foot space in the Town of Jupiter for its headquarters, research and development, and laboratory space for contract research and analysis. Somahlution will create 25 new jobs over three years. “We are thankful for the support of the Business Development Board and the local governments for assisting us in finding office space, obtaining tax incentives and introducing us to local contacts in the biotech industry,” said Satish Chandran, Ph.D., CEO at Somahlution, Inc. “We believe that being close to other biotech organizations in Palm Beach County will be advantageous to the future success of our organization.”

AV I AT I O N ENGINEERING PALM BEACH COUNTY PLAYS A GROWING NATIONAL ROLE IN THE AEROSPACE, AVIATION, ENGINEERING (A/A/E) CLUSTER WITH A WIDE RANGE OF MANUFACTURERS AND SUPPORT BUSINESSES, BACKED BY STRONG ACADEMIC AND WORKFORCE PARTNERS. For example, Pratt & Whitney, a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, industrial gas turbines and space propulsion systems, is adding an additional 230 new jobs to its Palm Beach County workforce. Pratt & Whitney is also renovating 90,000 square feet of existing space and constructing 80,000 square feet of new space at its northern Palm Beach County facilities. Another growing Palm Beach County A/A/E company is Parametric Solutions, Inc. “We have hired more than 100 engineers in the last four years and opened a 40,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in 2012,” said Catherine Haas Barre, president of the Jupiter engineering consulting firm. “We have customers from all over the world coming to Jupiter for their turbine engineering outsourcing needs. We will need to hire an additional 100 engineers over the next two years, and appreciate the Business Development Board’s assistance with three training grants and other services.” Charles Biondo worked at Pratt & Whitney for 17 years teaming with several partners to found Power Systems Mfg., (PSM) in 1998. Since then, the Jupiter company has grown steadily and now has nearly 400 employees. A wholly owned subsidiary of Alstom, PSM provides aftermarket gas turbine components, parts reconditioning services

and long term agreements (LTAs) to the worldwide power generation industry. “The global markets are driving our growth in both repairs and services,” said Biondo, who is vice president, shop & reconditioning operations. “We have recently signed long-term contracts with several international customers, and we expect to add nearly 200 more employees over the next three years to manage our growth plans.” A skilled technical workforce was a key reason Chromalloy chose Palm Beach Gardens for its corporate headquarters and new technology center of excellence, according to Armand F. Lauzon, Jr., CEO. “Palm Beach County is recognized in our industry for its wealth of highly qualified turbine engine engineers,” he said. “Also all levels of local government and the state helped to make our experience easy and efficient. Everyone involved in our decision to locate in Palm Beach Gardens demonstrated a genuine understanding of what it takes to keep business moving in these challenging times.” A subsidiary of Tampa-based Sequa Corp., Chromalloy is one of the nation’s largest suppliers of repairs and replacement parts for turbine engines. Chromalloy is now finishing the interior work on its 30,000-square-foot office, lab and technology development space, and 10,000-square-foot warehouse located in Palm Beach Gardens.

HEDGE FUNDS/PRIVATE EQUITY Psst, the word is out – Palm Beach County is an excellent location for hedge funds. Leading national publications like CNBC, TheStreet, Fox Business Network and the New York Post have run interviews and features about the virtues of living and working in an affluent, low-tax, warm-weather community within easy flying time of New York City. As Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the Business Development Board, told the Post, “We’re not doing a multimillion-dollar marketing campaign. We don’t need to because they’re coming to us.” In recent weeks, more than 12 news articles have been posted about this growing trend in the financial sector, and Smallridge has been interviewed by television and radio as well. “We recently opened a dedicated office to entice more firms to relocate to Palm Beach County,” she said. Evan Rapoport, CEO of HedgeCo Networks, a growing West Palm Beach firm that offers a free online hedge fund database, has seen a strong upturn in the number of Florida hedge funds in recent years. There were 48 new funds in 2010, 64 in 2011 and 56 in the first three months of 2012, bringing the total to more than 300. “That growth reflects a migration of established funds to Florida, as well as

homegrown startups,” he says. Rapoport says many successful hedge fund executives prefer the Palm Beach County lifestyle to the hectic pace of New York. “I came down here about 10 years ago from Wall Street, and have really enjoyed the lifestyle change,” he said. “For example, it’s a pleasure to be able to walk your dog without bundling up for the cold winter weather.” One of those ex-New Yorkers is Monty Agarwal, managing principal, MA Capital Management, an investment management firm in Palm Beach Gardens serving retail and institutional clients worldwide. Since moving the firm to Palm Beach County in 2005, MA Capital Management has grown to nearly 20 employees in Florida, plus a marketing office in New York. “For me it wasn’t just the weather that makes this a great location,” says Agarwal. “It was also the fact that our operating costs as well as our taxes are so much less in Palm Beach County.” Agarwal says he enjoys being able to play tennis and go to the beach and ocean any time of the year. “For other hedge funds looking to move here, I would say that the weather is a massive plus, and the cost of living here is 60 to 70 percent of what it would be in New York. I love it here – you couldn’t pay me to move back.”

Some service providers focus on the region’s high-networth individuals and families, while others support the operations of the area’s business community. In addition, some companies like Digital Risk and FTI have clients throughout the nation and around the world. “Palm Beach County has a rich financial services talent pool, which made the area a natural choice for Digital Risk,” said Brandie Young, managing partner, marketing. Noting that Digital Risk is a leading independent provider of risk, compliance and transaction management solutions for the financial services market, she added, “Since Palm Beach County is a significant hub for the mortgage industry, we have a pool of talent with skills specific to our business needs.” Digital Risk currently employs 200 people at its Boca Raton location, and plans to add 100 new jobs in the next few months, Young said. “The BDB, along with the City of Boca Raton and Palm Beach County’s Department of Economic Sustainability were instrumental in helping to make the expansion into Palm Beach County smooth, fast and successful. Also, the local Workforce Alliance was pivotal in helping us scale quickly, hiring highly talented individuals.” Skilled people, a great climate, low taxes and an ideal location are why FTI Consulting, a global business advisory firm, chose West Palm Beach for its headquarters, according to Dennis Shaughnessy, chairman. FTI provides political risk assessment, forensic investigations, crisis communications and other enterprise services. Its biggest offices are in London, New York and Hong Kong, with a Latin American office in Miami.

TECHNOLOGY DANIEL CANE SAYS SOUTH FLORIDA IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO GROW AN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (IT) COMPANY.

A Lake Worth native, Cane chose Palm Beach County to launch Modernizing Medicine, an innovative IT company serving the healthcare market. “I wanted to come back here to raise my family and grow our company,” said Cane. “We can hire great trainers and service representatives with medical backgrounds to serve our clients. The BDB has helped us find resources on recruiting and retaining talent, while serving as a wonderful sounding board for our company.”

11,162 – Total people employed by IT/communications businesses in Palm Beach County



$61,716 – average annual wage of IT/Communications businesses in Palm Beach County

Cane is co-founder and CEO of the 116-employee Boca Raton company whose lead product Electronic Medical Assistant™ is a cloud-based specialty-specific electronic medical records (EMR) system for physicians. One of the fastest-growing companies in South Florida, Modernizing Medicine now serves more than 700 practices across the country in the dermatology, ophthalmology, optometry and plastic surgery markets. According to the South Florida Technology Alliance, the tri-county region has nearly 25,000 technology businesses. In addition, Florida ranks fifth in technology employment, after California, Texas, New York and Virginia, according to TechAmerica Foundation’s “Cyberstates” report. Palm Beach County’s dynamic communications/IT cluster dates back to the 1970s and the birth of the IBM PC in Boca Raton. “We have tried to build on that legacy over the years by actively recruiting high-tech businesses to our region,” said Palm Beach County Mayor Steven Abrams at a recent BDB technology showcase event. One example is Flagship Solutions Group, an IBM business partner, serving mid-market and enterprise companies including banks, manufacturers and service

providers. “One of our areas of focus is sports, and we are a partner for SunLife Stadium and the Miami Dolphins with technologies that offer a better fan experience, shorter lines and enhanced safety and security,” said Mark Wyllie, CEO. Originally established in 1997 as an Internet service provider (ISP) and integrator, Host.net has grown through the years and today has almost 50 employees on its Boca Raton campus.

LIFE SCIENCES FROM BASIC SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH TO COMMERCIAL SPINOFFS AND WELLESTABLISHED PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES, PALM BEACH COUNTY OFFERS AN INVITING CLIMATE FOR LIFE SCIENCE COMPANIES. A recent survey found more than 115 companies here primarily engaged in research and development or the manufacture of biotechnologies, medical devices and pharmaceuticals. As the home of two world-class research facilities: Scripps Institute Florida and Max Planck Florida Institute for neuroscience, Palm Beach County is a rising star in the global life sciences sector. Located on the Jupiter campus of Florida Atlantic University (FAU), these two renowned scientific institutes are conducting basic and translational research on cancer, metabolic diseases, neurologic disorders and other medical conditions, while building strong academic, clinical and commercial partnerships. “We are all taking a collaborative approach, sharing ideas, resources and information,” said Dr. David Fitzpatrick, CEO and scientific director, Max Planck Florida Institute, adding that FAU, Scripps and Max Planck all have neuroscience programs. “It’s a tremendous experience to come together in what we call the Jupiter Neuroscience Community.” Scripps Florida scientists brought $54 million in research grants into Palm Beach County in 2012, and have raised more than $200 million since the institute was launched in 2004. For example, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke of the National Institutes of Health in early 2013 awarded just over $2 million to Scripps Florida scientists to identify proteins that play key roles in tumor cell proliferation and to determine if targeting these proteins could result in the inhibition of tumor growth. Meanwhile, a study by Enterprise Florida, the state’s economic development agency, forecasts that Max Planck Florida Institute will generate $2 billion in economic activity over the next 20 years. In addition, the institute recently announced a collaborative initiative with Jupiter Medical Center that will focus on clinical research. “We are looking at various ways we could become partners in studying clinical issues,” Fitzpatrick said. One example might be using the medical center’s hyper bariatric

  

chamber to learn more about how delivering extra oxygen could affect the neurological processes involved in brain trauma. “By exploring the fundamental biology of the brain, basic scientific research provides the foundation of information necessary for developing the next generation of drugs and therapies,” Fitzpatrick added. Much of the research activity in Palm Beach County’s life sciences sector is centered on the northern region. For instance, Dyadic, International, Inc. in Jupiter is a global biotechnology company using patented and proprietary technologies to develop and manufacture enzymes and other proteins for the bioenergy, bio-based chemicals, biopharmaceutical and industrial enzyme industries. However, other key players in life sciences are located in central and southern communities. Biotest Pharmaceuticals Corporation in Boca Raton researches and manufactures biotherapeutic products with a specialization in immunology and hematology. “Being located in Boca Raton gives us great accessibility for our employees and visitors, both domestic and international,” said Jordan Siegel, CEO. “Airports, highways and Tri–Rail are all very convenient to our location, helping to create a good working environment for our staff.” Biotest Pharmaceuticals recently received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for BIVIGAM™, an intravenous treatment for patients with primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI). BIVIGAM is being manufactured in Biotest’s state-of –the–art manufacturing plant in Boca Raton. Established in 2007, Biotest Pharmaceuticals owns and manages plasmapheresis centers across the United States, employing more than 650 people. Biotest Pharmaceuticals is a subsidiary of Biotest AG, a German-based global provider of plasma protein therapies that employs approximately 1,700 people worldwide.

115 – Total life sciences companies in Palm Beach County 4,180 – Total people employed in life sciences in Palm Beach County $234 million – Total annual payroll for life sciences employees in Palm Beach County

MANUFACTURING PALM BEACH COUNTY’S DIVERSE MANUFACTURING CLUSTER INCLUDES SOPHISTICATED AVIATION AND MARINE COMPONENTS, BIOMEDICAL DEVICES, PHARMACEUTICALS, IT HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE, PRINTING AND CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTS. Because the county’s manufacturers are primarily smaller businesses that operate “under the radar,” the BDB recently formed a Manufacturing Task Force to promote this sector. Co-chaired by Lauren Spector, CFO, Quantachrome, Inc. and attorney Patricia Lebow, founder and managing partner of Broad and Cassel’s West Palm Beach office, the BDB initiative will help connect manufacturers with the right resources, such as workforce training, to help them grow. One growing manufacturer is Aerospace Technologies Group, Inc. (ATG), which opened a new 65,000-square-foot facility located in the Research & Development Park at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. Founded in 1998, ATG is a worldwide leader in the design and production of window shade systems for commercial and corporate aviation customers, such as Boeing, Airbus, Gulfstream, Cessna and Dassault Falcon Jet. To the north, Locus Traxx, a fast-growing technology company focused on food safety and security of food shipments, is expanding its operations in a new 60,000square-foot facility at the Florida Research Park west of Jupiter, and growing from 50 to 160 employees. Founded in 2005, Locus Traxx serves customers in the global food

industry. Its SmartTraxx monitoring system wirelessly reports the temperature, security and location of shipments on the road. The company’s OverSight system delivers real-time Intelligent Alerts, texts and e-mails based on the incoming shipment data. These timely alerts ensure that shipment damage, theft or tampering can be prevented. In Delray Beach, Lumitec, a designer and manufacturer of marine LED lighting solutions, is increasing its workforce from 17 to 23. An engineering and design firm focused on high-quality, extreme environment LED lighting, Lumitec does all of its design, testing, and manufacturing at its research and development headquarters in Boca Raton. A global leader in the radio frequency (RF) microwave industry, SV Microwave designs and manufactures RF connectors, cable assemblies and passive components for U.S. and international customers. Founded in 2001, the West Palm Beach company has grown to 150 workers, including engineers and skilled machinists. “Our company’s track record shows that manufacturing can be done on a costeffective basis in Palm Beach County as long as you have the right talent,” said Subi Katragadda, general manager. “We have been able to attract skilled technical workers, both locally and from out of town.”

In Florida, more than 14,000 different companies and 355,000 people work in the manufacturing field. The Average annual salary is $48,000.

I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH POSITIVE THINGS ABOUT THE BDB. THEY HELPED US WHEN WE HAD PERMITTING ISSUES. THEY HELPED US MOVE THINGS THROUGH TO OPEN UP OUR FACILITY. THEY HELPED US FIND A GREAT FACILITY. SINCE THEN THEY'VE BEEN GREAT FRIENDS. THEY NETWORK PEOPLE TOGETHER, FINDING PEOPLE OF LIKE INTERESTS, WHO MIGHT NEVER MEET WITHOUT THE INTERVENTION OF THE BDB. IT’S A VERY VALUABLE RESOURCE FOR ANY BUSINESS. — David Benjamin, President and CEO, Locus Traxx

MARINE KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD FOR MARINE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, PALM BEACH COUNTY IS A PREMIER WARM-WATER DESTINATION FOR BOATERS OF ALL TYPES, CLASSES, AND SIZES.

“Our proximity to the Gulf Stream and multiple points of access offer unparalleled fishing opportunities,” said Mike Antheil, executive director, Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County, Inc. in Riviera Beach. “Our location only 50 miles from The Bahamas, makes us a gateway to the islands. We are also a launching point for travelers from the Northeast and overseas to secure provisions and safely harbor heading for the Caribbean.” Noting that the marine industry has a $2 billion impact on the Palm Beach County economy, Antheil added, “From megayachts to sailboats to family use vessels, every service a boater could ever need is found right here in Palm Beach County. The professionalism and advanced technology provided by our workforce, combined with the upscale offerings that Palm Beach County already offers makes us an obvious choice for yacht owners. We are poised to become

the “New Monaco,” a premier destination for yacht owners around the world.” Adding to the county’s appeal to boaters, Riviera Beach is planning a major waterfront redevelopment project along the Intracoastal Waterway near the Port of Palm Beach. Already home to Lockheed Martin’s marine operations, and leading marine service companies like Rybovich and Cracker Boy Boat Works Inc., the project will enhance Palm Beach County’s appeal to the international boating community. “Our redevelopment plans for a new marina and waterfront redevelopment project are taking shape, said Tony Brown, executive director, Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. “This is a $100 million multiphase plan with 300,000 square feet of retail, office and parking space designed to position our city as the regional headquarters for the marine industry.”

FROM MEGAYACHTS TO SAILBOATS TO FAMILY USE VESSELS, EVERY SERVICE A BOATER COULD EVER NEED IS FOUND RIGHT HERE IN PALM BEACH COUNTY.

LOGISTICS LOGISTICS COMPANIES PREFER PALM BEACH COUNTY

With a central location for Florida’s largest population centers and convenient access to world markets, Palm Beach County is a logical choice for logistics and distribution companies. In the retail sector, for instance, Cheney Brothers, Sysco Southeast Foods, Walgreen’s and U.S. Foods, all have major distribution facilities in Palm Beach County. Many companies, including Cheney Brothers and Sysco, have well-established operations in Riviera Beach in close proximity to the Port of Palm Beach. Tropical Shipping is the port’s major cargo company, providing service to the Caribbean, Latin America and beyond. Recently, the BDB facilitated the corporate relocation of Liquid Cargo, Inc. from New Jersey to Riviera Beach. Liquid Cargo is a logistics company with 20 employees that transports bulk cargos including pharmaceuticals, petroleum products, industrial chemicals and general commodities. To the west, Germany’s discount supermarket chain ALDI is building an 821,000-square-foot distribution center and regional headquarters on a 72-acre site in Royal Palm Beach. The $50 million project is expected to open in late 2013, creating about 100 jobs in the western communities. “This is the largest economic development deal from a physical standpoint for the county in the last two or three years,” said Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the BDB. “This facility will be the largest taxpayer for The Village of Royal Palm Beach.” The BDB also assisted American Tire Distributors (ATD), which is constructing a new 120,000-square-foot distribution facility in Royal Palm Beach, creating 30 new jobs. In business since 1935, ATD is a provider of tires, custom wheels, service equipment, shop supplies, and business resources to tire dealers, service repair shops, and automotive performance shops throughout the U.S and Canada. Smallridge credits the “business-friendly” attitude of The Village of Royal Palm Beach with landing these large facilities.

A TOP RANKED SCHOOL DISTRICT By E. Wayne Gent Superintendent Palm Beach County Schools In 2012, there were many achievements that validate our district’s lead role academically both statewide and nationally. Nearly 10,000 young men and women graduated in last spring and most went on to college. Collectively they earned an impressive $94 million in scholarships and will attend some of the finest colleges and universities here in Florida, across the nation, throughout the Ivy Leagues and abroad. Others are applying the training and “industry certifications” they received from our 236 Career Academies and Choice Programs to go directly into careers in our workforce. How do we do it? Our district is fully accredited. We have earned eight consecutive “A” ratings from the state. We’re the leader among urban Florida districts. More than 80 percent of our schools are rated “A” or “B”. Newsweek and The Washington Post, again this year, ranked our high schools in the top ten percent nationally for preparing students to be college-ready. Education Week and the Florida Department of Education ranked our high schools second in the state and eighth in the nation for our high graduation rates. One of our most impressive achievements of this year was The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation selecting our district from among the 75 largest districts nationally as one of four finalists for the prestigious Broad Prize for Urban Education based on our high graduation rates. The prize has already provided $150,000 in scholarships, and that could increase to $500,000. To ensure our ongoing success, our career academies, choice programs, IB schools and STEM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) will continue to offer students unparalleled experiences, innovative teaching techniques and unique opportunities for rigorous, in-depth study in specific themed areas. Our business community will continue to be a huge part of our success. Our partners are at the table with us helping to design the programs for the students who will become your top recruits, employees and future leaders. The worldrenowned Scripps Institute Florida and Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience are just two examples of the 1,200 partners that are helping give our students valuable internships, support and a world-class education. Our board, teachers and staff are dedicated to high standards and keeping Palm Beach schools the best source for a globally competitive education and work force.
