WELCOME ACCELERATING THE PACE OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT By attracting new business investment and supporting expansion projects, the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County is accelerating the pace of economic development in one of the world's most appealing business destinations. For more than 30 years, the BDB has focused on building a strong and sustainable business climate that benefits everyone in Palm Beach County. We understand the vital importance of a team approach, and coordinate our professional activities with valued partners like Enterprise Florida, Palm Beach County government, Economic Council, CareerSource, the Cultural Council, the area chambers of commerce, public and private educational institutions, and businesses of all sizes. In the past year, we have seen a great interest in Palm Beach County from domestic and international businesses in a wide range of sectors, from financial service firms and IT companies to manufacturers, logistics and healthcare organizations. In addition, our county is increasingly seen as an ideal location for corporate headquarters as demonstrated by Office Depot's recent decision to stay in Boca Raton rather

than move to another location. The BDB provided this leading Fortune 500 company with information, resources and support for that choice – an example of how we proactively work with local companies to help them achieve their business objectives. This issue of Profile magazine – published by the BDB in partnership with the Board of County Commissioners and the Palm Beach County Office of Economic Sustainability – examines why our county is so appealing for corporate headquarters, including both the business advantages and our unsurpassed quality of life. Our publication also highlights our region’s dynamic industry clusters, and features several leading executives who understand and appreciate the many benefits of working and living in Palm Beach County. We hope you enjoy reading about Palm Beach County’s excellent business environment, which provides a warm and welcoming platform for regional, national and global success. We invite you to contact our professional staff and 350 business members to learn why Palm Beach County is an ideal place to live, work, learn and play.

PALM BEACH COUNTY MAYOR

PRISCILLA A. TAYLOR Palm Beach County continues to see improvement in business development and job creation. State and local agencies tracking employment statistics in the County through 2013 have reported a steady drop in unemployment and a gain of more than 13,000 jobs over the year. Our efforts to diversify the local economy now reflect this job gain in the growing industries of trade, transportation, utilities, education and health services, and professional and business services. I can sense a collective sigh of relief as we see tangible signs of recovery in the business community, which ultimately results in a better quality of life for our residents. In 2013, Palm Beach County‘s economic development incentives and financial leveraging programs resulted in contractual commitments to create and/or retain more than 5,000 jobs. Our programs require companies to offer highly-competitive salaries, and to advertise positions through multilingual venues with the assistance of our workforce development community partners. The Board of County Commissioners also encourages businesses to provide a broad range of professional employment opportunities for lowincome County residents, and will continue efforts to level the playing field for job seekers as well as local contractors demonstrating Palm Beach County’s commitment to partner with industry and the workforce. During the past year, significant milestones were reached resulting in a combined projected five-year economic impact of more than $3.8 billion which include:  Fortune 500 company Office Depot chose to keep its corporate headquarters in Palm Beach County after its merger with suburban Chicago-based OfficeMax. The company employs 1,700 at its corporate campus in Boca Raton and injects $125 million annually into the local economy.  Palm Beach County, the City of West Palm Beach, and The Related Companies celebrated the groundbreaking on construction of the convention center hotel on Okeechobee Boulevard. The 400-room hotel project will create more than 500 construction-related jobs and nearly 1,000 permanent jobs generating more than $50 million in annual wage earning.  Palm Beach County and Hispanic-owned developer Jupiter CY, LLC – a subsidiary of Finvarb Group, kicked off the construction of the Jupiter Courtyard Marriott Hotel in the Abacoa community. The $19 million project is being assisted by a $2.3 million business loan through the County’s Section 108 Loan Program.  The County successfully completed the allocation of the federally-funded Neighborhood Stabilization Programs, established to stabilize communities severely affected by the economic and foreclosure crises. The funds leveraged private investment capital, bond financing, and housing tax credits in the development of new affordable housing communities, and the rehabilitation of abandoned and foreclosed residential properties. I look forward to working in partnership with our cities, the Business Development Board, and other economic development organizations to build on the growth of business enterprises in this community, and to create greater employment opportunities for our residents.

ON THE HORIZON

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 is moving forward with a $30 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 plans were approved by the CRA and City Council in February 2013. In December 2013, the city’s Community Development Department hosted an event to showcase the views that will be available from the new Riviera Beach Event Center, part of the first phase of the marina redevelopment, which will include waterfront restaurants. Construction of phase one is scheduled to begin on April 10, 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.

The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County will begin construction on a $670 million waste-to-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. County and City officials broke ground on the $100 million, 400-room Hilton West Palm Beach at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, which plans to open in fall 2015. The Hilton West Palm Beach is expected to add more than 1,000 jobs and generate $1 billion in economic activity over 10 years. In addition to two ballrooms, eight conference rooms and other event space, the Hilton hotel being built adjacent to the convention center at 650 Okeechobee Boulevard, will feature a 225-seat restaurant, bar, fitness center and landscaped pool area with cabanas.

WHEN OFFICE DEPOT MERGED WITH OFFICE MAX LAST YEAR, CHOOSING A CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS SITE WAS A KEY ISSUE FOR THE FORTUNE 500 GLOBAL PROVIDER OF OFFICE PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND SOLUTIONS. AFTER A THOROUGH ECONOMIC EVALUATION THAT INCLUDED THE COST OF OPERATIONS, TAX CLIMATE, AND SPACE FOR FUTURE GROWTH, OFFICE DEPOT DECIDED TO REMAIN IN ITS 625,000-SQUARE-FOOT CORPORATE CAMPUS IN BOCA RATON, RATHER THAN MOVE TO ILLINOIS, WHERE OFFICE MAX WAS BASED.

“Selecting the headquarters location is a critical step toward integrating our two companies,” said Roland Smith, chairman and CEO, Office Depot, in announcing the decision. “Our analysis concluded that Boca Raton provides the best platform for us to achieve planned synergies, leverage assets to drive improved profitability, and launch a compelling vision for the future.” The company has combined annual sales of approximately $17 billion, employs about 66,000 associates, and serves consumers and businesses in 59 countries with more than 2,200 retail stores, award-winning ecommerce sites and a dedicated business-to-business sales organization. Today, Palm Beach County offers a warm welcome to all types of corporate and regional headquarters in fields as diverse as retailing, manufacturing, information technology, life sciences, security and business and professional services. There are many reasons CEOs find the business case for Palm Beach County so compelling including a diverse pool of skilled workers, Florida’s low-tax business climate, a strategic location for reaching domestic and international markets, an outstanding quality of life, and a solid supply of commercial office space. “Palm Beach County’s attraction to the corporate world stems from its enviable location within the state of Florida, which promotes business growth and at the same time offers an outstanding quality of life,” said Pete Bevacqua, CEO, The PGA of America. “When The PGA of America arrived in Palm Beach County in 1965, our association leaders shared a vision with civic leaders, past and present. Today, corporate executives worldwide continue to view Palm Beach County as a leading destination, largely due to its proactive approach to business development.”

A GROWING LIST OF CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS The area’s growing list of major public and private companies includes FTI Consulting, TBC Corporation (Tire Kingdom), G4S, and 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. The ADT Corporation, a leader in the electronic security, industry in the U.S. and Canada, opted to stay in Palm Beach County after completing its spinoff from Tyco International Ltd. in 2012.

In the information technology sector, OpenPeak, Inc. has built a global mobile enterprise management (MEM) business from its base in Boca Raton. “As mobility becomes a critical component of enterprise productivity, employees expect the freedom to bring their own devices, choose when and where they work and what applications they use to do their jobs,” said Dan Gittleman, CEO. “But, the situation creates a significant challenge for enterprises, which must look beyond the devices and apps for the right tools and solutions to secure, control and manage the corporate data that is being accessed and moved around between them.” Gittleman launched OpenPeak in 2002, and has grown the company to about 200 employees, who have developed and continually advance a mobile product suite for customers that include leading carriers and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) in North America and Europe. “Palm Beach County has been a great location for us,” he said. “The region has a large talent pool, allowing us to build a stable workforce. Plus the sunny weather puts people in a better mood.” Other advantages to being based in Palm Beach County include an exceptional data networking infrastructure, relatively low housing costs, and no personal income tax, added Gittleman. “It’s easier and less expensive for an IT company to do business here than in many parts of the country,” he added. In the health care sector, Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), a national network of five hospitals that treat patients fighting complex and advanced-stage cancer, has recently selected Boca Raton as the site for its corporate headquarters. The decision followed a thorough examination of the alternatives available to the company in order to best position it for continued growth and accelerated investment in the talent, technology, and related resources needed to provide the services cancer patients seek to conquer their disease. Florida’s favorable business climate, coupled with the quality of life offered to residents of Boca Raton, and its proximity to three international airports, factored heavily in the company’s decision to relocate. “We deeply appreciate the support we received from the State of Florida, the City of Boca Raton, Palm Beach County and its Business Development Board, under the leadership of President and CEO Kelly Smallridge, in coming to this decision,” stated CTCA President and CEO Gerard van Grinsven.

A TALENTED WORKFORCE A talented workforce is one of the area’s key business advantages for LRP Publications, according to Ken Kahn, CEO, of the Palm Beach Gardens-based company. “The variety of local universities to recruit an educated workforce, positive business climate, favorable tax environment and thriving local economy make Palm Beach County an ideal place for LRP and its employees,” Kahn said, adding, “It is much easier to recruit talent from out-of-state because of our great quality of life in Palm Beach County.” Last year, LRP Publications expanded several departments

and acquired the Thompson Education Group Library. In addition, we are experiencing success in our conferences division,” said Kahn. “Several shows, including HR Technology® Conference and National Workers Compensation and Disability Conference have experienced the highest attendance in their history and are projected to be even larger this year.” Having access to a large and diverse pool of workers has also been important to Hollander Sleep Products, the largest provider of basic bedding products in the world. “Palm Beach County has provided a large pool of talented and educated professionals that have been an integral part of our growth and success,” said Chris Baker, CEO, of the Boca Raton-based global company. Hollander Sleep Products manufactures bed pillows, mattress pads and toppers and comforters in nine plants in North America, and also operates offices in China and India that manage the supply chain for a large portion of the materials used in production process. Hollander products are sold by virtually every major North American retailer under a wide variety of brands, including Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley, Nautica, Chaps, Charisma, Beautyrest and Live Comfortably. In 2013, the company acquired one of its major competitors, Louisville Bedding Company, expanding its market share. Since relocating from New Jersey to Palm Beach County in 1991, Hollander Sleep Products has grown its corporate office from 12 associates to 100 professionals with almost 2,000 employees worldwide. “We have increased our corporate office staff over 30 percent in the last three years,” said Baker. “While the large majority of the additional staff was recruited from Palm Beach County, our location assisted us in attracting key industry professionals from several other states and India.“

A SOLID PLATFORM FOR GROWTH 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 have certainly contributed to the success we enjoy.” NCCI gathers data, analyzes industry trends, and prepares objective insurance rate and loss cost recommendations for the workers’ compensation industry. “We are a business to business company with a not-for-profit philosophy,” he added. “Through the past few years of the national economic crisis, NCCI has maintained a very stable environment both for our national customers and nearly 1,000 employees.” Commenting on the importance of economic development, Klingel said, “The Business Development Board understands what motivates companies to relocate, expand, and thrive in Palm Beach County. 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. We feel a strong partnership with the BDB in shaping a bright future.”

One example is Aerojet Rocketdyne, an international aerospace business that provides propulsion products for the space launch and missile defense industries. It was formed in 2013 when United Technologies Corporation sold its space propulsion business to GenCorp Inc., which combined it with its Aerojet subsidiary to form Aerojet Rocketdyne. “While our company name is relatively new, the men and women who design and build these amazing products have been proud to call Palm Beach County home for the past five decades,” said Jim Maus, executive director, West Palm Beach Operations. “We wouldn’t want to do it anywhere else and look forward to being an active partner with our neighbors in Palm Beach County for decades to come.” Aerojet Rocketdyne has about 400 highly educated engineers, technicians and support staff in Palm Beach County, where its team has been building the RL10 rocket engine since the late 1950s. “We are also developing hypersonic engine technology in Palm Beach County that will help propel the next generation of aircraft in excess of Mach 6, or six times the speed of sound,” Maus added. Last fall, Aerojet Rocketdyne received the prestigious 2013 John R. Alison Award for its work on the X-51A WaveRider. The X-51A WaveRider hypersonic vehicle, powered by Aerojet Rocketdyne’s SJY61 scramjet engine, achieved aviation history by making the longest-ever supersonic combustion ramjet-powered flight, where it traveled more than 230 nautical miles in about six minutes. This engine was designed and manufactured by the company’s team in Palm Beach County. Aerojet Rocketdyne is also working with NASA to build its next-generation rocket, known as the Space Launch System, or SLS. “This new rocket, along with the Orion crew vehicle that is also being developed by NASA, will provide an entirely new capability for human exploration of deep space, beyond Earth’s orbit,” said Maus. Pratt & Whitney, a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, industrial gas turbines and space propulsion systems, is expanding its manufacturing capabilities at its West Palm Beach facility for assembly and test capabilities. This supports Pratt & Whitney’s anticipated rampup for the development of PurePower® and F135 engines within the coming years, according to Susan Denny, manager, West Palm Beach site Integration. “Pratt & Whitney is pleased with the performance of our workforce in West Palm Beach and is proud to expand our manufacturing capabilities,” she said. A skilled technical workforce was a key reason Chromalloy chose Palm Beach County for its corporate headquarters in 2011. “Palm Beach Gardens has been great for Chromalloy,” said Armand F. Lauzon, Jr., CEO. “Obviously the climate and lifestyle make it a very easy place to recruit into, but more importantly Palm Beach County has a strong aerospace engineering heritage, which is a great advantage for our business.” A subsidiary of Tampa-based Sequa Corp., Chromalloy is one of the nation’s largest suppliers of repairs and replacement parts for turbine engines. “Over the last six months we have signed some very important long term strategic agreements with major aerospace engine manufacturers and these agreements bode well for the future of Chromalloy,” said Lauzon. In 1998, Charles Biondo and several partners founded Power Systems Mfg., (PSM). Now a wholly owned subsidiary of Alstom, Jupiter-based 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 more employees to manage our growth plans.”

FINANCIAL SERVICES

WITH ITS WARM WEATHER, CONVENIENT CONNECTIONS TO THE NORTHEAST AND LOW-TAX CLIMATE, PALM BEACH COUNTY HAS BECOME A MAGNET FOR HEDGE FUNDS, PRIVATE EQUITY FUNDS AND OTHER FINANCIAL FIRMS.

As Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the Business Development Board, recently told the New York Post, “We’re not doing a multimillion-dollar marketing campaign. We don’t need to because they’re coming to us.” One example is Camden Capital, a privately held wealth management firm, which serves the region with an office in North Palm Beach. “Camden Capital has been built one family at a time, remaining disciplined and selective in its philosophy and approach,” said John M. Krambeer, founder and CEO. “Our independent structure, world-class investment platform, and underlying fiduciary duty differentiate us from a majority of the national firms that have a presence in Florida.” Palm Beach County is also the long-time home to a wide array of banks, brokerages, law and accounting firms and other professional and financial service companies. “Palm Beach County is in the midst of a strong recovery,” said Fab Brumley, Bank of America president for Palm Beach County. “We are fortunate to have a business community that works with government, education and non-profits to move us forward as a unified, world-class place to do business.” Recognizing the area's growing appeal to professional and financial firms, West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio recently announced plans to create the “Flagler Financial District” in the downtown area. “We already have a portion of our city where banking and finance is heavily concentrated. Now we need to let the world know about it,” she said in her “State of the City” address to the region's business leaders and professionals. To forge a visual sense of identity, the Flagler Financial District would include street signs, banners and other signage with a new logo. The city's plan has already won support from

the BDB, the Downtown Development Authority and the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches. To help grow the county's financial talent pool, Florida Atlantic University's College of Business recently redesigned its educational Trading Room for trading simulations, training, and execution at the Boca Raton campus. “We have hundreds of finance and economics students go through the trading room, which provides an exceptional learning environment,” said Rainford Knight, director of the trading room. In addition, FAU has built a strong Financial Analyst Program, with 25 students this year who will learn about fundamental financial analysis, capital markets analysis, fixed income analysis and other topics. “We take some of the best students in our College of Business – both graduate and undergraduate – and offer them a program based on the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) curriculum,” Knight said. “Our goal is to give them a set of skills that will make them marketable to financial firms or to corporate finance departments.” FAU student teams have also placed highly in the Florida regional competition of the CFA's annual Global Investment Research Challenge, which involves writing equity research reports on public companies. The university's Financial Analyst Program is supplemented by the FAU/Bloomberg Terminal Internship Program, which provides area companies that hire FAU analysts with training as well as complimentary Bloomberg access for three months. “This is a really nice incentive for Palm Beach County firms to hire our students,” Knight said. “It's one of the ways we strive to add value to the region's business community.”

PALM BEACH COUNTY’S DYNAMIC COMMUNICATIONS/IT CLUSTER DATES BACK TO THE 1970S AND THE BIRTH OF THE IBM PC IN BOCA RATON.

“For more than 35 years, IBM has had a presence in Palm Beach County,” said Rick R. Qualman, vice president strategy, industry solutions & business development, Global Telecommunications Industry, IBM. “Our employees reflect the expertise that continues to keep us essential both locally and globally. Our employee footprint includes individuals that call Florida home but commute to locations around the country and the world supporting IBM’s customers.” Today, Palm Beach County is home to leading-edge companies in a wide array of technology sectors, including point-of-sale software (Touchsuite) mobility (MobileHelp), healthcare (Modernizing Medicine), and managed infrastructure services (Host.net) Another dynamic IT company is Allied Fiber, which is building a national, open access, network-neutral dark fiber superstructure and recently opened a co-location facility in West Palm Beach. “Our networks provide carriers, businesses, universities and governments with high-speed connectivity,” said Jason Cohen, president and CEO. “We tie in with cellular towers, metro networks and subsea cable landing points, so

  

we help connect South Florida with the world.” Allied Fiber has completed a dark fiber lateral ring in Boca Raton and is extending its network northward from Miami to Jacksonville with co-location centers every 60 miles (100 meters). “We are open for business and excited about what we can offer the Palm Beach County business community,” added Cohen. With a talented workforce that includes IT professionals and college and university graduates, South Florida is an ideal place to grow an information technology (IT) company. According to the South Florida Technology Alliance, the tricounty region has nearly 25,000 technology businesses. In addition, Florida ranks fifth in technology employment, after California, Texas, New York and Virginia, according to a recent TechAmerica Foundation’s “Cyberstates” report. “The BDB has a longstanding and solid record of bringing top technology companies to Palm Beach,” said Qualman. “The vitality of the county continues to be enhanced with each new company and research firm relocating here, each of which provides a significant economic impact.”

HEALTHCARE/ LIFE SCIENCES WITH WORLD-CLASS HEALTHCARE FACILITIES, RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS AND COMMERCIAL VENTURES, PALM BEACH COUNTY HAS A VIBRANT HEALTHCARE/LIFE SCIENCES SECTOR.



115 – Total life science 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

For example, JFK Medical Center in Atlantis is focused on delivering leading-edge academic healthcare, while meeting evolving community needs. “In the past year, we have extended our emergency department services to Palm Beach Gardens and West Boynton Beach,” said Gina Melby, CEO. “We are also investing in new technology-JFK has added their second robot which is utilized for surgical procedures for Gynecology, Urology and General Surgery.“ Also, JFK was one of the first five Florida hospitals to offer transaortic valve replacement as an interventional cardiology procedure to high-risk patients whose heart valves could not be replaced by traditional surgery. A clinical partner with University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, JFK Medical Center helps train up to 82 residents a year in surgery and internal medicine. JFK also has a podiatry residency program and is training two fellows in hospice care. “When someone is considering relocating to a new community, healthcare is one of the top issues in the decision process,” said Melby. “One of Palm Beach County’s assets is high quality healthcare services that support our community’s future.” Another leading regional healthcare provider is the Paley Advanced Limb Lengthening Institute at St. Mary’s, led by Dror Paley, M.D., one of the world’s most experienced limb lengthening and deformity correction surgeons. To better meet the region’s healthcare needs, Palm Beach Orthopaedic Institute is building a new facility in Palm Beach Gardens, and NuVista Living is planning a new residential community in Jupiter. As the home of 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. “The Max Planck Florida Institute is continuing to grow and establish excellence in basic neuroscience,” said Dr. Matthias Haury, chief operating officer. “Here in Palm Beach County, the research we’re carrying out today builds the foundation for tomorrow’s cures. As a not-for-profit institute, it’s due to the overwhelming support of the State of Florida and its citizens that new and exciting discoveries have already been made at MPFI, with more underway. These discoveries are enhancing the world’s basic understanding of major brain diseases like autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, schizophrenia and epilepsy.” PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS PROFILE

HEALTHCARE/ LIFE SCIENCES MPFI is also committed to training Florida’s next generation of young scientists through programs for high school and college students. “Our scientists’ involvement in community engagement in the town of Jupiter and throughout the county is a priority as well, with public lectures and creative and cultural events like the Brain Bee Challenge, Neuroscience Discovery Day, and Science meets Music,” said Haury. Since its founding in 2004, Scripps Florida has established deep roots in the Palm Beach community, while fulfilling its mission to advance biomedical research, improve human health and train the next generation of scientists. “We are tremendously proud to celebrate Scripps Florida’s 10th anniversary,” said Michael A. Marletta, Ph.D., president and CEO of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) at a recent luncheon. “Thanks to the support of the people of Florida and Palm Beach County, Scripps Florida has grown into a worldclass research center and beacon of scientific education. I look forward to our next decade of discovery, education and community partnerships.” Based in Riviera Beach, Sancilio & Company, Inc. (SCI) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on advanced lipid technology and complimentary products. Unlike most research stage companies, SCI has developed a portfolio of commercialized products that are developed, manufactured and distributed in its own cGMP manufacturing facilities. “We are building all the necessary systems, facilities and expertise to allow us to maximize the value of our robust research pipeline,” said Dr. Fred Sancilio, chairman, president and CEO, who has more than 40 years of experience in the pharmaceutical research, development, manufacturing and distribution industries. “For me, Palm Beach County is reliving the North Carolina Research Park Triangle (RTP) experience of the early 1980s,” Sancilio said. “I watched the cornerstone companies and the startups benefit as the pharmaceutical people gathered to discuss their research and do deals.” Since launching SCI 10 years ago, Sancilio has been active in the region’s life sciences cluster, helping other companies find capital and other resources, while advancing his specialty pharmacy company’s research and commercialization programs. SCI’s workforce is now at 109, up from 50 last year. “We’ve been very successful in North America and are moving into Europe and Asia as well,” he said. “If you want to feel the excitement of a growing community of scientists, Palm Beach County is where it’s at today.”

LOGISTICS 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 Cheney Brothers, Sysco Southeast Foods, Walgreen’s and U.S. Foods, all have major distribution facilities in Palm Beach County. Another growing logistics company is Woodfield Distribution (WDSrx), a full service, third-party logistics provider specializing in pharmaceutical supply chain solutions for the healthcare industry. Its secure, 48,096-square-foot climate controlled facility in Boca Raton performs warehousing and distribution functions including receiving, storage and fulfillment, inventory and data management, returns and recall support and packaging. Many distributors, 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 72acre site in Royal Palm Beach. “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. Florida Crystals, the world’s largest producer of refined cane sugar, has an 850-acre site between Belle Glade and South Bay where a 10 million square-foot inland Intermodal Logistics Center is underway. The goal of the project is to take advantage of the region’s central location on U.S. 27 between the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico’s coasts to build a multi-modal transportation facility serving South Florida’s major seaports.

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. A good example is Quantachrome is a world leader in the design and manufacture of laboratory instruments for characterizing properties of porous materials and powders. A newcomer to Palm Beach County is Kinon, that has developed a proprietary hand cast resin with various decorative effects that can be used in wall paneling, cabinetry and interior doors, kitchens, tables and retail fixtures. “Palm Beach offers obvious tax benefits from New Jersey,” said Richard Satz, president, Kinon in Boynton Beach. “Our workforce here is currently more than 18 and we anticipate hiring more than 35 positions in the next year,” Satz said. “The area also has many manufacturing resources, from electronics services, to metal fabricators and wood fabricators to a multitude of advertisement companies, shipping companies – there are plenty of readily available suppliers in the area.” One of the world’s top medical equipment companies, DePuy Synthes Power Tools, is also based in Palm Beach County. Formerly known as Anspach Power Tools, it’s now a part of DePuy Synthes Power Tools, a Johnson & Johnson company. “We are proud to be located in Palm Beach Gardens to build upon the fine heritage that Anspach has created over the past 20 years,” said Edward Mackey, worldwide president, Power Tools. “We have a dedicated group of employees and our affiliations with local colleges help replenish our employee base with great talent in a host of disciplines.”

As a member of the medical device community, DePuy Synthes Power Tools has an important responsibility to serve its customers and patients and work to address unmet orthopaedic and neuro needs, said Mackey. The company’s Palm Beach Gardens facility includes a fully equipped Professional Education Training Lab. “With Palm Beach International Airport 15 minutes away and our proximity to local accommodations, we are able to run large training events or meetings fairly easily in the area,” he added. Another longtime medical device company is BIOMET3i, a global dental implant medical device company that serves hundreds of thousands of dental professionals worldwide. The company has 450 employees in its Palm Beach Gardens headquarters and employs more than 1,000 team members worldwide “BIOMET 3i is at a discrete advantage geographically, because it is located within a county that continues to heavily support and promote the medical device and life sciences industry sector,” said Ed Sabin, CEO. “Our company was founded as a local business in 1987 and has seen significant strides for Palm Beach County in recent years.” Sabin said the business advantages for BIOMET 3i include a strong pull from a human resources recruitment perspective, adding, “Many people want to live in a county that is pro business, is flourishing from a recreation perspective and provides strong education opportunities for families.”

The area also has many manufacturing resources, from electronics services, to metal fabricators and wood fabricators to a multitude of advertisement companies, shipping companies – there are plenty of readily available suppliers in the area. — Richard Satz, President, Kinon in Boynton Beach

ENJOYING PALM BEACH COUNTY’S

WARM LIFESTYLE Golfing, Boating, Cultural Amenities Among the Many Attractions

WHEN REX KIRBY MOVED TO PALM BEACH COUNTY, ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WAS THE HIGH QUALITY OF LIFE.

“It’s a great place to live and raise kids,” says Kirby, president and general manager, Suffolk Construction’s Southeast region in West Palm Beach. “There is great boating, fishing, as well as opportunities to enjoy sports, the parks and recreation that you don’t find anywhere else.” Palm Beach County’s year-round warm climate and high quality of life appeal to entrepreneurs, corporate executives, employees and families. “From the high-quality education options for my children, to a variety of cultural activities by area museums and venues such as the Maltz Theater and Kravis Center, it’s very difficult to match the quality of life here,” said Ken Kahn, CEO, LRP Publications. “Leaving behind freezing temperatures in Philadelphia in the 1990s for Palm Beach’s beautiful weather and water, I’m proud to be able to call this my home.” Residents of Palm Beach County can enjoy their favorite outdoor activities, including golf (see related article), boating, fishing, tennis, running and swimming. That includes canoeing, kayaking and other eco-adventures on the county’s scenic rivers, lakes and wetlands, as well as enjoying the sandy, natural beaches. Overall, the county has 160 golf courses, 1,100 tennis courts, bicycling baths, horseback trails, baseball fields, and parks – as well as 47 miles of beaches and hundreds of miles of inland waterways, along with offshore reefs for divers and the nearby Gulf Stream for deep sea fishing.

A WIDE RANGE OF CULTURAL OFFERINGS

Palm Beach County residents also enjoy plenty of indoor cultural, dining and shopping activities – enough to suit anyone’s lifestyle. “Palm Beach County enjoys the largest cultural industry per capita in the State and the most sophisticated arts and cultural programming south of Atlanta,” says Rena Blades, president and CEO of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. In fact, the Urban Institute has ranked Palm Beach County as one of the nation’s top 10 metropolitan areas in cultural vitality. “For more than 100 years, since Henry Flagler brought his railroad and the world’s largest resort to Palm Beach, we’ve been building facilities for the best in performing and visual arts and offering programs to residents and tourists that are of the highest quality,” said Blades, adding that more than 3 million people attend a cultural program each year. “Beyond the great weather and beaches, our region enjoys such a high quality of life because of the abundant and outstanding arts and culture.” Palm Beach County also has a growing number of sophisticated dining-entertainment venues, including CityPlace and Clematis Street in West Palm Beach and Mizner Park in Boca Raton. In the Town of Palm Beach, Worth Avenue’s elegant boutiques showcase high-end fashions, accessories, jewelry and other necessities of life. Summing up, Palm Beach County’s warm, family-friendly lifestyle, Gina Melby, CEO of JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, said, “I enjoy boating, going to the gym and spending time outdoors , while our three children are involved in school activities and play on neighborhood recreation teams. Living here is a wonderful experience.”

FLORIDA’S GOLFING CAPITAL

With 160 golf courses and the headquarters of The PGA of America, Palm Beach County is the unofficial golfing capital of Florida. “Golf is a healthy, vibrant industry that generates thousands of jobs in Palm Beach County, gives back to our community through a wide array of charitable endeavors and stands as a pillar of tourism in South Florida,” said Pete Bevacqua, CEO, The PGA of America, which has been based in Palm Beach Gardens since 1965. “The year-round quality of weather we enjoy is one of the many reasons why Palm Beach County is such a desirable location for golf.“ With more than 3.7 million rounds of golf played here each year, Palm Beach County has historically been a special destination for golfers worldwide, according to Bevacqua. “From challenging municipal layouts to some of the game’s most recognized resort courses, Palm Beach County appeals to golfers of all abilities and interests.“ The National Golf Foundation (NGF) estimates there are 117,000 resident golfers in Palm Beach County, a number that approximately doubles during the season. Through the years, The PGA of America has hosted three of golf’s premier events in Palm Beach Gardens, including the 1971 and 1987 PGA Championships, the 1983 Ryder Cup Matches and 26 Senior PGA Championships between 1965 and 2000. The events brought worldwide attention and tourism to Palm Beach County, as network television showcased South Florida with exposure and economic impact valued in millions of dollars. Palm Beach County is home to PGA Tour golf tournaments, The Honda Classic and the Allianz Championship.
