“It’s Not Just Business...It’s Personal”
PALM BEACH COUNTY MAYOR
SHELLEY VANA From bioscience to baseball, Palm Beach County continues to be one of the most desirable locations in the country to do business. Our world-class amenities combined with Florida’s enviable tax structure, make us an obvious contender for company expansions and relocations.
Working closely with the Business Development Board and our community partners, the County maintains an edge when competing for business, as we are successfully courting deals for the creation of new job centers in a time when company takeovers can mean the departure of jobs. According to the most recent data published by Enterprise Florida, Inc., the state’s principal economic development organization, Palm Beach County maintains the highest average annual wage in Florida, at $47,440. During the past year, the County partnered with the State to keep 401 Lockheed Martin jobs in Riviera Beach and help the company compete for new defense contracts. Artificial turf manufacturer Fibex is developing a new facility in the West 13th Street corridor of Riviera Beach, medical records software company EHR Tech LLC opened its headquarters in Pahokee, and Biotest Pharmaceuticals Corporation opened a new plasma center in Royal Palm Beach – all helped with financial leveraging through the County’s business assistance programs. Our efforts to foster a high quality of life in Palm Beach County comes with great responsibility. This includes, among many needs, providing better opportunities for employment and access to quality, affordable housing. The Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners supports policies which place all residents on equal footing in seeking jobs and opportunities in awarding construction
contracts. In January, the Board established the Glades Employee Incentive Program to encourage contractors to hire Glades residents on County projects. The program will provide an incentive payment to contractors and their subcontractors who employ Glades residents, recovering up to 30 percent of the employee’s wages, up to a maximum of $100,000 per project. This program will supplement the Glades Local Preference Ordinance, which provides bidding preferences for Glades businesses. In January 2015, Palm Beach County formed an innovative partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta to establish a new pilot project - the Veterans Homeownership and Preservation Program. The project provides $1.5 million to active-duty and retired U.S. military personnel, veterans, and their surviving spouses for assistance in rehabilitating existing homes or purchasing primary residences in the county. The availability of jobs also has a direct effect on the issue of homelessness. This year, following the footsteps of the County’s immediate past mayor, Commissioner Priscilla A. Taylor, I had the honor of hosting the second annual Mayor’s Ball to raise funds for the Homeless Coalition and elevate the discussion on dealing with this important issue. These initiatives all play a critical role in Palm Beach County’s reputation as a truly livable community, and demonstrate our commitment to creating a thriving, diverse economy.

I-95 Spanish River intersection project
Florida Atlantic University is teaming with Scripps Florida and Max Planck Florida Institute to transform its John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter into a hub of scientific inquiry, innovation and economic development. The three institutions announced in March that they will build on their existing relationships to develop premier STEM programs — science, technology, engineering and math — through shared resources and facilities. “Our intention is to put a STEM honors college on this campus to go after the best and brightest kids in the world,” said FAU President John Kelly. He noted that scientists from the two institutes would teach courses to FAU graduate and undergraduate students, who would study alongside some of the world’s leading scientific researchers. Henry Rionda Jr. and his partners are transforming a former prison in Belle Glade into Glades Gateway, a 212-acre business park designed for warehouses and manufacturing operations. Rionda, who is president of Rio-Bak, a Palm Beach County construction company, led a group of investors who purchased the closed Glades Correctional Institute from the State of Florida. Glades Gateway already has landed

several tenants, including vegetable grower TKM Bengard, Orsenigo Farms and Precision Land Leveling. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) began construction of a new I-95 interchange at Spanish River Boulevard in Boca Raton. Located between the Glades Road and Yamato Road exits, the new interchange will provide convenient access to nearby commercial facilities and residential neighborhoods in the southern Palm Beach County municipality. The $67.7 million project includes widening Spanish River Boulevard west of FAU Boulevard and adding lanes to Yamato Road. Astaldi Construction Corp., is scheduled to complete the project in summer 2017. Palm Beach County approved a $135 million proposal to build a new baseball stadium designed to serve as the spring training home of the Houston Astros and Washington N ationals. The county commission recently approved a $5 million down payment for the proposed stadium, which would be located in West Palm Beach. However, the Florida Legislature would need to remove restrictions on the 160-acre site at 45th Street and Haverhill Road.

Corporate Headquarters_BDB 2015:Layout 1
When GardaWorld decided to move its Cash Services Home Office to Palm Beach County in 2011, key factors were the region’s positive business climate and the strong collaboration among state, county and municipal authorities.
“From the nice climate to the diverse cultures and communities, Palm Beach County has much to offer to anyone looking to enjoy a high quality of life. For many of our employees a safe environment along with a great school system is extremely important to their families, and Palm Beach County offers that quite well.”
– Chris Jamroz, GardaWorld
“We saw a great opportunity for expansion in an area with close proximity to international airports, low taxes, diverse and skilled workforce, and a plethora of building space options,” said Chris Jamroz, president and COO, Cash Services, GardaWorld. “The advantage of no state income tax and attractive economic incentives made GardaWorld’s decision to relocate the home office even more appealing.” Today, Palm Beach County offers a warm welcome to all types of corporate and regional headquarters in fields as diverse as security, logistics, manufacturing, information technology, life sciences, 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. For example, Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), a national network of five hospitals that treat patients fighting complex and advanced-stage cancer with innovative, world-class options, recently selected Boca Raton as the site for its corporate headquarters. The company eventually expects to employ 225 full-time staff, including executives relocating from suburban Chicago. President and CEO Gerard van Grinsven said 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. “Selecting Boca Raton as our new corporate headquarters represents a major step in positioning Cancer Treatment Centers of America to serve even more patients in the future, while simultaneously providing our dedicated and valued employees with exciting opportunities for further personal and professional development,” van Grinsven said.
ATTRACTING CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS The area’s list of major public and private companies includes TBC Corporation (Tire Kingdom), 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. Google recently announced that NextEra’s wind turbines would provide an alternative source of power to its corporate headquarters in Mountain View, California. One of the biggest newcomers is Reyes Holdings, a food and beer distributor that moved its headquarters office from Chicago to West Palm Beach. With $23 billion in revenues, Reyes Holdings is ranked 12th on Forbes’ list of America’s Largest Private Companies. Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) chose Boca Raton for its headquarters in 2014. “The State of Florida, by comparison with much of the country, offers a pro-business economic climate that understands PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS PROFILE
Corporate Headquarters_BDB 2015:Layout 1
and supports the needs of customer-driven organizations like Cancer Treatment Centers of America,” said Gerard van Grinsven, president and CEO. As part of CTCA’s overall vision to become a global leader in cancer care, the corporate staff in Boca Raton will include about 200 stakeholders. “Our headquarters is located in a community that is immensely supportive of locally-based businesses,” he added. “The area also gives us easy access to building our international presence while allowing our stakeholders to enjoy the many benefits of living in South Florida, including excellent schools, cultural choices, shopping and recreational activities.“
ATTRACTING FINANCIAL FIRMS In the financial services sector, Palm Beach County has long attracted the headquarters of leading banks, accounting firms and insurance companies, as well as a growing number of hedge funds and private equity funds. “Some of the biggest names in the financial sector have been very successful here,” said John Castle, managing director, Branford Castle, Inc., a private equity firm. “It’s a great place to do business and a great place to live.” Lumbermen’s Underwriting Alliance (LUA), which provides commercial property and casualty insurance throughout the U.S., relocated its headquarters from Kansas City in 1976 and has grown steadily since then. “The lifestyle and climate-related reasons why we relocated to Boca in 1976 remain consistent advantages today,” said CEO Jan Carlson. “Top talent resides here, so this marketplace certainly meets the recruiting needs of our company. There are also three universities within a mile of our office, which ensures there are is no shortage of candidates or interns.” Palm Beach County is also a home for leading global security companies, including G4S and Centerra Group in Palm Beach Gardens, Boca Raton’s GEO Group and ADT Corporation, which opted to stay in Boca after completing its spinoff from Tyco International Ltd. in 2012. “Since arriving in Palm Beach County, GardaWorld Cash Services has expanded our operations in the state of Florida,” said Jamroz. “Boca Raton has truly become the home to our Cash Services support team, including finance, human resources, marketing, legal and our national customer care center.”
HOME FOR IT COMPANIES Sam Zietz was a N ew York attorney who moved to Palm Beach County eleven years ago and started a new technology business in the warm sunshine. Today, he is the CEO of Boca Raton-based TouchSuite, one of America’s leading and fastest-growing payment processing and technology companies. “The sunny climate, high quality of life, excellent schools, and favorable tax rates have really helped our business to grow,” he said. Having access to three international airports and seaports is another plus for TouchSuite, which imports its equipment from overseas manufacturers. The IT company has also built strong ties with nearby Florida Atlantic University and Lynn University, providing internships and work-experiences for students. TouchSuite, which now has a workforce of about 70, recently expanded to Canada and launched Firefly Retail, a highly advanced, Android™-based solution for small and mid-size retail businesses. “We’re expecting even more rapid growth in the coming year,” he added. “We never have a problem recruiting quality IT professionals and their families – especially when there’s a foot of snow on the ground in the North.”

INDUSTRY CLUSTERS A ROBUST BUSINESS CLIMATE
With strong collaboration between business, government and education leaders, Palm Beach County enjoys a dynamic and richly diversified business climate. Here is a closer look at leading companies and organizations in six key industry clusters.
Aerospace/Aviation/Engineering Professional/Financial Services Communications/ Information Technology Healthcare/Life Sciences Logistics Manufacturing
PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS PROFILE
Clusters_BDB 2015:Layout 1
AEROSPACE AVIATION ENGINEERING Palm Beach County plays a leading role in the nation’s aerospace, aviation, engineering (A/A/E) industry with a wide range of manufacturers and support businesses, backed by strong academic and workforce partners. For instance, Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems and Training business has facilities in West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach with 400 employees who produce advanced undersea systems, ranging from manned submersibles to unmanned remotely operated vehicles to autonomous vehicles. Aerojet Rocketdyne, a world-recognized aerospace company, has a team of 400 highly educated engineers and technicians in Palm Beach County who are focused on designing, manufacturing and testing rocket engines and other propulsion products. “This is an exciting time for our business and we are happy to be a part of the larger aerospace community that is growing in Palm Beach County,” said Aerojet Rocketdyne West Palm Beach Executive Director Jim Maus. “We celebrated two key milestones in December 2014. We powered the launch of NASA’s new Orion spacecraft on its first test flight, an important step in our nation’s renewed effort to send humans to explore deep space, and we successfully launched a brand new model of our RL10 rocket engine, which our company has been building in Palm Beach County since the late 1950s.” Maus added that Aerojet Rockedyne recently began building the RL10 rocket engines that will help launch American astronauts to the International Space Station aboard Boeing’s CST-100 spacecraft in 2017. “We have a very busy year in front of us,” he added. Last June, Gov. Rick Scott participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Pratt & Whitney’s new 97,000-square-foot LEED Gold-designated production facility. “This state-of-the-art engine Assembly and Test Facility will play a key role supporting the production ramp-up of Pratt & Whitney’s next generation PurePower® PW1100G-JM commercial engine and
F135 military engine,” said Paul Adams, president, Pratt & Whitney. The company is also creating 110 jobs for its military Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) business. In February, Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp., passed a major testing milestone for its new S-97 RAIDER™, an armed helicopter designed to meet U.S. Army reconnaissance and special operations needs. Work is also underway on a second prototype model at Sikorsky’s Development Flight Center on its 6,800-acre campus in northern Palm Beach County. “We have received excellent support from the State of Florida, the Business Development Board and local municipalities for our Palm Beach County operations, which are vital to our company’s continued business growth,” said John Fischetti, General Manager, Development Flight Center, Sikorsky Aircraft. In 2012, Sikorsky opened a new 60,000-square-foot hanger for its development programs, and its regional workforce has grown from 250 to more than 1,300 in the past six years. “In addition to being able to recruit top talent for our manufacturing and assembly operations, we have plenty of space and great, year-round weather to fly our experimental aircraft.” One of Palm Beach County’s “home-grown” success stories is Florida Turbine Technologies in Jupiter. Since its launch in 1998, the company now employs several hundred workers with offices in Puerto Rico, the UK and Germany. “We provide one-stop design and engineering services”, said Shirley Brostmeyer , CEO. “The key benefits of being located here include the region’s skilled workforce, excellent schools, high quality of life and low tax climate.”
Florida has the second largest aviation and aerospace industry in the nation, with 82,400+ industry employees

RECRUITING AND RETENTION Belcan Corporation has found it easy to recruit and retain experienced engineers and new college graduates at its Florida Design Center in Palm Beach Gardens. “Attrition at our center runs significantly lower than the national industry average, and employee surveys consistently show a favorable rating greater than 90 percent,” said Kerry Byrne, general manager. “We believe the increased employee retention and satisfaction can be
attributed entirely to the great surroundings the office has to offer.” Today, Belcan has about 400 employees in the Palm Beach County area and expects to add 50-75 more positions in 2015. “Thanks to our relationship with the BDB, we have acquired a number of local and state grants, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship with the BDB for years to come.” PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS PROFILE

PROFESSIONAL/ FINANCIAL SERVICES With its favorable tax and business environment, and access to wealth and quality of life, Palm Beach County has become a magnet for hedge funds, private equity funds and other financial service firms. “People in New York are really talking about Palm Beach County,” said Kenneth Polcari, CN BC market analyst and contributing editor, who moderated a recent BDB panel discussion on the business migration trend. “Today, you don’t have to be on Wall Street to be successful in financial services.” Michael Falk, chairman, Comvest Partners, moved from New York to West Palm Beach more than a decade ago. Since then, he’s built a highly successful private equity and investment firm. “Palm Beach County has been an excellent location for us,” he said. “We’ve been able to take advantage of a great pool of local talent, and have had no problem in relocating professionals here from all over the country.” In March, New York-based Skybridge Capital, a global alternative investment firm with $12.5 billion in assets under management or advisement opened a new office in Palm Beach Gardens. “Palm Beach County is centrally located in one of the fastest-growing regions of the U.S.,” said Anthony Scaramucci, founder and co-managing partner. “When you combine the tax benefits and pro-business climate with population growth, you have the trifecta for an exceptional business environment.” To attract financial services companies, the City of West Palm Beach created the Flagler Financial District in early 2014. Since then, the city has seen growing interest from firms like Automatic Finance. which relocated its headquarters to West Palm Beach. “The city’s Flagler Financial District is an ideal location for our business to engage with other local financial companies, and places us within walking distance to many of the terrific amenities of downtown West Palm Beach,” said Justin Rafael, president of the automotive finance company. Scaramucci said his firm, which produces the annual SkyBridge Alternatives Conference (SALT), expects to have a dozen staffers in its Palm Beach Gardens office by mid 2016. “My business partner has a residence in Jupiter, so we are familiar with the region and are ready to increase our presence here,” he said. Another growing financial services firm is DRB Capital, LLC, which recently added 75 new employees at its Delray
Beach headquarters, which handles the company’s core businesses of structured settlement and annuity monetization and litigation funding. “Delray Beach is a great place to live and work,” said Antony Mitchell, interim CEO. “The city provides amenities and a great quality of life for financial professionals.”
Florida has 32,150 financial services companies
Florida has 93,677 professional services firms
864,000 Floridians are employed by financial and professional service companies
200 commercial banks with $124 billion in assets operate in Florida
500+ insurance companies are located in Florida
Palm Beach County is the long-time home to a wide array of banks, brokerages, law and accounting firms and other professional and financial service companies. “We have tremendous professional resources in our region,” said Martin Cass, managing director, BDO, the fifth largest global public accounting firm, with more than 50 people in its West Palm Beach office. “Our experienced, multilingual team at BDO has been providing audit, consulting, tax and other financial services to the community since 1986, and we have grown substantially in the past two years,” Cass said. For example, BDO has a strong middle-market practice serving financial, healthcare, technology, manufacturing and distribution companies, as well as athletes, entertainers and family offices. One of BDO’s specialties is private equity services, providing due diligence, audit and other services for investors and business owners. “The Business Development Board has done a great job in assisting expanding and relocating companies, including helping relocating employees and families make a successful transition here,” Cass said. As Fab Brumley, Bank of America president for Palm Beach County, said, “We are fortunate to have a business community that works with government, education and nonprofits to move us forward as a unified, world class place to do business.” PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS PROFILE

Palm Beach County’s dynamic communications/IT cluster dates back to the 1970s and the birth of the IBM PC in Boca Raton.
Today, the region is home to leading-edge companies in a wide array of technology sectors, including point-of-sale solutions (TouchSuite) mobility (MobileHelp), healthcare (Modernizing Medicine), and cloud computing/managed infrastructure services (Host.net) One fast-growing IT company is Crossmatch, which debuted last year following the merger of Cross Match Technologies® in Palm Beach Gardens and DigitalPersona® in Paris, France. A world leader in biometric identity management solutions, Crossmatch is helping organizations of all sizes with identity management solutions. Commenting on the company’s recent deployment of fingerprint readers to First Bank’s branches in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina, Richard Agostinelli, CEO, said, “Financial institutions around the world are using Crossmatch solutions to meet the security requirements of their core banking platforms. Our biometrics-based solutions empower financial institutions to prevent theft, drive operational efficiency, mitigate costly data breaches and comply with everchanging industry regulations.” From its base in Boca Raton, OpenPeak, Inc. has built a global mobile enterprise management (MEM) business . “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 more than 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.
Florida gained 12,500 tech industry jobs in 2014, ranking it the third-best among the 50 states, trailing only California (+32,900) and Texas (+20,100). According to the Cyberstates 2015: The Definitive State-by-State Analysis of the U.S. Tech Industry report published by CompTIA, tech industry jobs accounted for 5.7 percent of the entire private-sector workforce.
“Palm Beach County has been a great location for us,” Gittleman 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, he added. “It’s easier and less expensive for an IT company to do business here than in many parts of the country.”

HEALTHCARE/ LIFE SCIENCES As the home of Scripps Institute Florida and Max Planck Florida Institute (MPFI), Palm Beach County is a rising star in the global life sciences sector.
TherapeuticsMD Inc., an innovative women’s healthcare company, was ranked as Florida’s fastest-growing company in the 2014 Deloitte Technology Fast 500.
Located on the Jupiter campus of Florida Atlantic University (FAU), these two renowned institutes are conducting scientific research on cancer, metabolic diseases, neurologic disorders and other medical conditions, while building strong academic, clinical and commercial partnerships. Pharmaceutical, medical device and laboratory companies are also flourishing in the county, which has a strong base of hospitals, specialized clinics, physicians and other healthcare service providers. “When someone is considering relocating to a new community, healthcare is one of the top issues in the decision process,” said Gina Melby, CEO, JFK Medical Center in Atlantis. “One of Palm Beach County’s assets is high quality healthcare services that support our community’s future.” 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. 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 developing a new residential community in Jupiter. In the life sciences sector, Medytox Solutions, Inc. recently announced a 60-person expansion at its corporate headquarters in West Palm Beach. The company’s principal line of business is clinical laboratory testing services to physicians, clinics and rehabilitation facilities in the United States. “Our ability to expand in our current Palm Beach County location is an ideal situation that will support future growth,” said Seamus Lagan, CEO. “Florida provides a pro-business climate and the resources we need to continue our success.” Based in Riviera Beach, Sancilio & Co. (SCI) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on advanced lipid technology and complimentary products. “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 N orth 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.”

In mid 2015, ALDI is scheduled to open its new 821,000square-foot distribution center and regional headquarters on a 72-acre site in Royal Palm Beach. “Our distribution center is nearly ready to serve the South Florida market,” said Chris Hewitt, Royal Palm Beach division vice president, ALDI. “The central location in Royal Palm Beach will allow for efficient distribution to nearby ALDI stores.” ALDI currently has 16 stores in the South Florida area, including three in Palm Beach County. “This is the largest economic development project from a size standpoint for the county in the last few years,” said Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the BDB. “The new ALDI facility will be the largest taxpayer for the Village of Royal Palm Beach.” Another growing logistics company is Woodfield Distribution, 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. In Riviera Beach, Tropical Shipping is the port’s major cargo company, providing service to the Caribbean, Latin America and beyond. Recently, the BDB facilitated the 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. 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.

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.
For example, Quantachrome Instruments is a Boynton Beach-based developer and producer of scientific, analytical instruments that enables customers to discover new, advanced materials and control the quality of manufacturing processes. A recipient of the Florida Governor’s Export Excellence Award, and with offices in Japan, China, UK, Germany and India, Quantachrome has experienced strong export sales growth throughout its 20+ years of operating in Palm Beach County. “Palm Beach County has proven to be an outstanding headquarters location and a base for exporting products throughout the world,” said President F. Scott Lowell. “We enjoy all the benefits of an ideal south Florida location from recruiting staff to hosting international conferences with easy access to exporting freight to all corners of the globe.”
The projection systems for Universal Studio’s 3D rides “Harry Potter,” “Transformers,” “Spiderman,” “The Simpsons” and “Despicable Me” in Orlando were all designed and built by JENOPTIK in Palm Beach County. 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 its workforce by 10 percent in the past two years, according to Subi Katragadda, general manager. “Our company’s track record shows that manufacturing can be done on a cost-effective basis in Palm Beach County as long as you have the right talent,” said Katragadda. “We
have been able to attract engineers from four area universities, and attract skilled professionals from out of town.” Another growing manufacturer is JEN OPTIK Optical Systems which designs and builds optical systems for the life sciences, semiconductor equipment, defense and entertainment industries. The company’s Jupiter plant on the Pratt Whitney campus in northern Palm Beach County has roughly 100 employees. “Our 70,000-square-foot facility includes world-class manufacturing, assembly and test capabilities,” said Jay Kumler, president. “The weather, sporting, cultural and social opportunities combined with our professional opportunities and corporate culture, make JEN OPTIK attractive to prospective hires. They also value the educational opportunities at Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach State College, and Palm Beach Atlantic University.” Kinon Surface Design, Inc. recently established a manufacturing facility in Boynton Beach for its innovative surface materials which are used for wall panels, tabletops, flooring, furniture, and displays for upscale retailers. The company will add 35 new jobs. “The BDB, City of Boynton Beach and Enterprise Florida did an outstanding job helping us with our move,” said Les Satz, CEO. “Boynton Beach is not only a great place to live, but they have proven they are serious about attracting manufacturing too,” One of the world’s top medical equipment companies, DePuy Synthes Power Tools (formerly known as Anspach Power Tools) has been operating from the county for more than 20 years. “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,” said Edward Mackay, former 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.”

EDUCATION CIVIC ENGAGEMENT: A POWERFUL EDUCATIONAL PRIORITY Palm Beach County’s colleges and universities are focusing on civic engagement to support humanitarian, charitable and community organizations. It’s a dramatic turnaround from the traditional “ivory tower” approach to learning that bringing students into real-world situations and delivering important benefits to participants and communities. Here are a variety of examples of how educational institutions are approaching civic and community engagement.
FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY
Through Florida Atlantic University’s Academic ServiceLearning program, second-year Spanish language students help older adult residents of the West Palm Beach Housing Authority‘s public housing community. They learn firsthand about housing, poverty, immigration, aging and health care issues, while providing hands-on community service. Over the past eight years, students taking part in FAU’s Alternative Spring Break program have traveled to Florida and non-Florida communities to address issues such as disaster recovery and rebuilding, youth development and affordable housing. For the past three summers, FAU students have served as reading tutors for underserved second and thirdgrade children in local summer camps. Through FAU’s Community Garden STEM [science, technology, engineering and math] Education Program, students serve as tutors to third- and fourth-grade children attending an after-care program in Boca Raton. Under the supervision of an Environmental Sciences faculty member and the Weppner Center for Service-Learning & Civic Responsibility, the FAU students have developed a STEMfocused curriculum, with the afterschool classroom serving as the laboratory. Last September, students observed Hunger Action Month through a series of events to increase public awareness of local hunger including a community-wide food drive to stock local pantries.
“Knights Unite Day of Caring and Citizenship Project“ is an annual tradition at Lynn University to honor the legacies of four students and two faculty members who lost their lives in the 2010 Haiti earthquake while performing community service. In 2014, 1,283 students and 252 employees completed 63 volunteer projects and provided 5,315 total hours of service. Those “Knights Unite” projects included helping children with physical, mental, or developmental challenges with a preseason baseball game at the Miller Park facility in Delray Beach; removing several miles of irrigation tubing from Yamato Scrub, a 6-acre natural land parcel; and “Feeding Children Everywhere”, packaging 50,112 meals for children in Haitian orphanages. Lynn’s student athletes are also making a difference through the Fighting Knights Community Service program. For example, the baseball team signed 10-year old Ari Cohen as a member through Team IMPACT, a program dedicated to improving the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses.
“At NSU, we do more than talk the talk when it comes to community service. We encourage everyone connected to the university to actively give back to organizations and causes that are near to their hearts.”
– NSU President and CEO George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D. 64
KEISER UNIVERSITY Keiser University’s campus in West Palm Beach helps employers seeking to fulfill workforce needs, advance their businesses, and promote economic development. Keiser’s business students have worked with SCORE and other business groups to develop a greater sense of community engagement and responsibility. In 2014, SCORE named Keiser its Strategic Partner of the Year. This year, business and accounting students will participate in the IRS‘ Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program to help low and moderate-income taxpayers complete their annual tax returns at no cost.

EDUCATION For many years, the West Palm Beach campus of Keiser has supported charitable initiatives such as Operation Homefront, the Palm Beach County School District, Big Brothers / Big Sisters of the Palm Beaches, Palm Healthcare Foundation and local chapters of the N ational Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Cystic Fibrosis and the American Cancer Society. Last October, volunteers from the National Student Nurses Association volunteered at Boca Helping Hands, serving meals, preparing food, and helping residents register for the organization’s grocery program. Keiser’s Information Technology students partnered with Graphic Arts & Design students to analyze and recommend network infrastructure upgrades for the Urban League, applying their classroom lessons to a real world issue. In addition, the graphic arts students have helped with rebranding several local businesses. Criminal Justice students organized a toy drive for the community’s underprivileged children and initiated a mentorship program with Turning Points Academy, a local alternative high school for at-risk youth.
NORTHWOOD UNIVERSITY Northwood University believes that involvement is essential to developing strong leadership potential in business. Therefore, its students are involved in a variety of community improvement activities as part of the EXCEL volunteer program. Involvement includes volunteering in the local community, helping at food banks, visiting nursing care facilities, taking in a play, enjoying the arts, or being involved and holding positions in campus organizations. For example, about 20 students
and staffers volunteered to help build a home for Habitat for Humanity, developing teamwork and communications skills. The campus offers EXCEL opportunities throughout the academic year and helps students realize how important community involvement is to professional growth, developing skills such as meeting people in the industry or building a network of peers before graduation.
NOVA SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is designated as a “community-engaged” institution by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and “community” is one of NSU’s core values. Last year, NSU faculty and students who attend classes at the Palm Beach regional campus participated in 95 different community-based activities that had a positive impact on the county’s residents. For example, N SU’s medical students worked with patients at the Hospice of Palm Beach County and with rural and underserved patients through the Palm Beach County Health Department. Law students provided pro bono services through the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County. NSU’s psychology students volunteered with Palm Beach County’s Youth Affairs Division, the West Palm Beach Veteran’s Administration, and the American Addiction Centers located in West Palm Beach. Pharmacy students participated in a 5K Walk to benefit Juvenile Diabetes of West Palm Beach and participated in organizing a public awareness campaign for substance abuse in cooperation with the Palm Beach County Substance Awareness Coalition. NSU students also volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, Keep Palm Beach Beautiful, and Samaritan’s Purse.
A SOLAR ENERGY LEARNING PARTNERSHIP Two new solar-panel installations, constructed by Florida Power & Light Company on the grounds of the Technology Business Incubator (TBI) in Boca Raton, are now producing power, generating clean energy and providing real-life data for analysis by Florida Atlantic University scientists and students. The partnership is part of FPL’s ongoing commitment to support technology education and clean-energy research in Florida. The study being conducted by the FAU Solar and Fuel Cell Laboratory will focus on comparing the efficiency of
solar panels that are installed in fixed or stationary settings versus panels installed on a tracking mechanism designed to adjust their angle to follow the path of the sun during the day. The project’s main purpose is to determine how much more efficient the tracking panels are in converting the sun’s rays to electricity compared with stationary panels under real-life conditions in South Florida’s tropical climate. After the project is completed, the solar panels will continue to provide electricity to help power the TBI. PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS PROFILE
EDUCATION BLUE RIBBON SCHOOLS
Two Palm Beach County schools recently received Blue Ribbon Awards issued annually by the U.S. Department of Education: Morikami Park Elementary in Delray Beach and The King’s Academy, a private school in West Palm Beach. The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students either achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap. The award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.
PALM BEACH ATLANTIC All Palm Beach Atlantic University undergraduates take part in community service activities with approximately 300 non-profits, schools and churches. Many students apply classroom lessons to their assignments for further enrichment. Many students volunteer with Urban Youth Impact, a nonprofit serving West Palm Beach’s Tamarind neighborhood, or the Parker Avenue Consortium, a neighborhood educational enrichment alliance with the City of West Palm Beach and the Palm Beach County Public School District. The university also partners with Feeding Children Everywhere to package 100,000 healthy meals for hungry families in Palm Beach County. Recently, the university received a $50,000 grant from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties to support the Coastal Biodiversity Conservation program, a research initiative involving Palm Beach Atlantic and Forest Hill High School students. Three times a week, student volunteers lead cancer survivors through individualized routines of exercise as part of the university’s Cancer Related Fatigue Program. In a separate initiative, pharmacy school students are engaged in volunteer projects in the western community of Belle Glade. Reflecting
these efforts, Palm Beach Atlantic was recently recognized by the Florida Campus Compact with a Campus-Community Partnership Award.
PALM BEACH STATE COLLEGE Palm Beach State College students are involved in “service learning,” which combines academic coursework with community service projects. In addition, the college’s honor societies, student clubs and athletic teams participate in community projects, such as environmental cleanups, food drives, and “Paint Your Heart Out” for low-income or disabled homeowners. The campuses have “Adopt a School” programs, in which faculty, staff and students support local elementary schools through reading programs and school supply drives. In 2014, the Palm Beach State College Student United Way received a national award for logging more than 3,000 community service hours.

“We are excited about the prospects for our dynamic and diverse region,” said attorney Donia Roberts, chairperson, Lake Okeechobee Regional Alliance (LORE), an economic development organization that is working closely with the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County. “Our partnership with the BDB brings a great deal of expertise and credibility to our economic development efforts,” said Roberts, adding that the region’s three cities – Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay – are committed to facilitating jobcreating new business investment. “It is our goal to lay the proper groundwork to accommodate new businesses so they can move quickly to establish themselves in our region,” she said. For example, Guy Harvey Outpost is seeking approval from Pahokee to operate the city’s marina, campground and restaurant, and bring its world-famous brand of resorts and
President and CEO Kelly Smallridge said there were three serious prospects considering opening new facilities in the Glades area that would hire local workers and construct new facilities. “We’re optimistic, but there is a ton of work that goes into making sure a new project comes to fruition,” she said. One prospect is a soil enrichment company that would create about 100 new jobs over five years, the second is a manufacturing facility that would generate about 250 new jobs, and the third is a light manufacturing company that would create about 60 new jobs. At the meeting, Tracy Sharp, chief operating officer of Boyette Strategic Advisors, presented an economic analysis, sponsored by FPL, designed to identify both the challenges and opportunities of bringing new businesses to the Glades area. The BSA report, “The Glades Region of Palm Beach
lodges to Lake Okeechobee. The company’s proposal calls for a $4 million investment to create a major destination for anglers, boaters and eco-tourists. The Glades region is also placing a priority on career readiness programs to increase the supply of skilled workers in the region. For example, the Palm Beach County Public School District has partnered with Florida Training Services to provide pre-apprenticeship programs that introduce students to the construction trades. Since innovative multi-trade West Tech Vocational Program was launched last summer in Belle Glade, more than 20 adult students have received certifications. To support the region’s economic development initiatives, the BDB recently hired a new vice president, Luke Jackson, who will serve as an advocate for the Glades. Jackson has experience in rural business retention and expansion, and his responsibilities include recruiting major new businesses and industries to the Glades area in partnership with LORE. At a recent meeting with LORE and civic leaders, BDB
County: Target Sector Report and Recommendations,” highlighted four key business sectors: Agri-business/food manufacturing Distribution/warehousing Retirement services Recreational tourism In discussing the report, Sharp said the Glades’ central location between the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, was a important asset for manufacturing, distribution and warehousing companies seeking to serve southern and central Florida. She noted that the region had abundant undeveloped land, and 34,000 residents with a relatively low median age. Key challenges are the region’s low income level and high poverty rate. The BSA report called for a concerted effort to brand the region, and Sharp suggested “The Glades of Palm Beach County” would enhance name recognition for outside companies.
USDA RECOGNIZES GLADES COALITION The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently presented a Community Development Award to municipal, educational and economic development organizations for their collaborative efforts to increase employment and economic development in the Glades communities. The Cities of Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay, along with the Business Development Board of Palm Beach
County, The Lake Okeechobee Regional Economic Alliance, Palm Beach State College, the School District of Palm Beach County, and CareerSource Palm Beach County were selected to receive the honor. This is a national award with one winner for each of the 47 USDA regions. The Glades coalition received the award for the Florida/U.S. Virgin Islands region.
