Letter From

Mayor Letter_Profile 18.qxp_Layout 1 6/20/18 9:06 AM Page 16

Palm Beach County

Mayor

It’s

been another strong year for Palm Beach County’s economy! We have a wonderful diversity of industries contributing to our economic success, such as tourism, agriculture, construction and technology. As of March 2018, the County’s unemployment rate stood at 3.6 percent. It takes great partnerships to make this happen, so I want to thank the Business Development Board for working closely with the Board of County Commissioners and other partners throughout the county to encourage growth, innovation and investment. Tourism remains in excellent shape with record-breaking visitation numbers for the ninth year running! In 2017, there were 7.89 million visitors to Palm Beach County, an increase of 7.3 percent over 2016. In addition, visitors spent $4.7 billion in 2017, a new record and 2 percent higher than 2016. This is now eight years in a row of visitor spending growth! This is fantastic news for our tourism industry, which supports nearly 70,000 jobs. Tourism has helped the one-penny infrastructure surtax to generate significant returns thus far, with approximately $288.5 million collected among the county, school board and municipalities since January 1, 2017. This funding has allowed the county to undertake projects, including street resurfacing and striping; street lighting; bridge modifications and replacements; drainage improvements; and park and playground repairs and enhancements. I wish to highlight Palm Beach County’s agriculture industry, of which there have been numerous exciting developments over the past year. One of our county’s most unique new businesses—Tellus—recently opened in Belle Glade. Tellus is a joint venture by Florida Crystals and the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative, and its model recognizes the growing desire for more biodegradable packaging options. By recycling leftover sugarcane fiber called bagasse from the sugar milling process, Tellus creates packaging and food service products such as plates, bowels and takeout containers. The two companies invested $75 million to open the facility, and the county provided an $850,000 Economic Development Incentive Grant. In the initial phase, 50 people, most of whom are from the Glades, have been hired to operate the plant, and 100 jobs are expected within five years.

16

PROFILE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS | BDB.ORG

Additionally, the Legislature provided $1.5 million for the Everglades Restoration Agricultural Community Employment Training Program. Through this funding, grants will be available for job training and employment programs to boost nonagricultural job opportunities in agricultural areas facing high unemployment. Also, the funding will be used to help provide the training, education and information necessary to stimulate job creation in these same areas. The Legislature specifically notes the opportunity to develop an inland port in Palm Beach County as a reason why training our citizens for such new jobs is so important. Our county is thrilled for this promising program to help diversify the economic opportunities in western Palm Beach County. In April 2018, our county hosted the National Association of Counties Farm Bill Summit. This was an excellent opportunity, as Congress prepares to review the new Farm Bill legislation, to showcase to county commissioners and staff from throughout the country the importance of Palm Beach County’s agricultural industry to Florida and the nation. Attendees of the summit visited various locations involved in this vital industry, such as the Glades Sugar House, Florida Crystals Rice Mill, Pioneer Packing House and TKM Packing House. With estimated total sales proceeds in 2016-17 of $1.42 billion, Palm Beach County leads all counties east of the Mississippi River and is one of the largest in the nation in agricultural production. There have many numerous economic successes throughout Palm Beach County over the past year, which showcases how much we have to offer and underscores why we continue to attract new residents. From our economic opportunities to our natural beauty to our cultural attractions, Palm Beach County continues to stake its claim as one of the most desirable places in the entire country to live. Thank you to all of our partners who work together every day to make this happen. Together we are truly better. Let’s all keep up the great work!

Melissa McKinlay Mayor, Palm Beach County

Palm Beach State College A new Technology in Anatomy and Physiology (TAP) Lab is among the latest high-tech advances at Palm Beach State College. Now open at the Boca Raton campus, the lab’s features include zSpace, a threedimensional virtual reality platform, that helps students understand the structures and functions of the human body. It is equipped with Creston touchpad technology for control of presentation tools, and Clarus Glassboards, a new kind of technology. “Our lab incorporates virtual reality technology, allowing students to pull an organ out of the body, see it and manipulate it,” said Dr. Chasity O’Malley, science professor and department chair for STEAM programs at the Boca Raton campus. “They can see the heart, watch it beat and understand how the valves work. It gives them a much better perspective than a traditional anatomical model.” PBSC’s Loxahatchee Groves campus, which opened last year, also has a virtual lab with zSpace.

Keiser University Keiser University’s West Palm Beach campus is now home to the College of Chiropractic Medicine—the first such doctoral program in South Florida—while a new health sciences facility takes shape on its Flagship Campus. The rigorous program prepares graduates to truly make a difference by relieving patients’ pain, improving their mobility, and guiding them to lead healthier lives. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of chiropractors will grow 17 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Dr. Michael Wiles, dean of the college, noted that the growth may be attributed to people of all ages having an increased interest in integrative and complementary health care and nonsurgical methods of treatment. “I chose Keiser University’s College of Chiropractic Medicine because of its numerous accreditations nationwide, and for the opportunity to learn from Dr. Michael Wiles’ personal chiropractic medical experiences and background,” said inaugural student Sophia Milanian, a recent graduate of Florida Atlantic University.

Florida Atlantic University Florida Atlantic University has teamed with the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) to establish an undergraduate honors program in neuroscience that is the first of its kind across the globe. Commencing in fall 2018, the FAU Max Planck Honors Program is designed to recruit and serve the “best of the best,” according to FAU President John Kelly. “Neuroscience is a strategic focus area for our university, and we are delighted to once again join forces with our partners from Max Planck to provide a truly unique honors program for undergraduate students on our John D. MacArthur campus in Jupiter,” said Kelly. “This program will propel our national and international visibility as well as enhance partnership opportunities for joint hires, faculty appointments and research grants with our outstanding colleagues at the Max Planck Florida Institute.” Prior partnerships between FAU and Max Planck have led to the creation of two successful graduate degree programs: the Ph.D. in integrative biology and neuroscience (IBNS), and an international Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Brain and Behavior degree.

Public and Private Schools Google representatives recently visited the Woodlands Middle School campus to collect feedback on Google Expeditions, its new augmented reality (AR) technology. Students in the medical program could see a 3D view of kidneys from any angle, while math students worked out probability with the roll of some virtual dice. Seventh grade students at Congress Middle School’s Digital Video and Graphic Design program took part in the national Hour of Code, highlighted by video appearances of Serena Williams, global soccer icon Neymar and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “Technology is the wave of the future, and it is very important that we prepare our kids for whatever careers they may embark on in the future and get them college- and career-ready,” said Principal Denise O’Connor. Oxbridge Academy, an independent school in West Palm Beach, provides instruction in aviation, including a flight simulator, to help students obtain pilot licenses. The school also offers a British history exchange program where 15 high school juniors study with professors at Cambridge University.

Powerful BDB Initiatives To ensure that Palm Beach County is widely recognized for its excellence in education and its qualified workforce, the BDB and its partners offer several major education initiatives, including: n Claim Your Future Showcase, which shows hundreds of high school students the career paths available in Palm Beach County. n Academic Leaders Council, which connects businesses and schools to ensure curriculum alignment with jobs. n Palm Beach County Internship Expo, which connects college and university students with local businesses. n Education Microsite (PBCedu.org), which markets and communicates the quality educational opportunities in Palm Beach County. n Workforce Analysis Study. With support from JP Morgan Chase, the BDB launched a comprehensive workforce study to analyze the area’s labor force.

Lynn University Lynn University is planning a Social Impact Lab, an experiential learning space where students and professionals will leverage the power of business to generate positive impact both locally and around the world. Jerry Hildebrand, a pioneer in social entrepreneurship, has been appointed the center’s director. Set to be located in the future Christine E. Lynn University Center, the Social Impact Lab’s mission is to be a world-class career launchpad for purpose-fueled young professionals. It will offer real-world experience, professional connections and mentorships, and industry preparedness and upskill training. It will also serve as a go-to talent pipeline for mission-focused startups, impact nvestment firms and social enterprises. “I’m excited to build on already existing citizenship and impact programs and bring a whole new level of social innovation to the university,” Hildebrand said. “And we’ve already seen Lynn students do great things.”

Palm Beach Atlantic University Last November, Palm Beach Atlantic University dedicated its new Titus Center for Franchising in the Rinker School of Business. The center was established after a $1.5 million gift from Ray Titus, CEO, United Franchise Group (UFG). Students who are looking to one day own and operate their own business can be educated and trained in franchising and entrepreneurship through the university’s Bachelor of Science in Management program. As the first of its kind in Florida, the center’s academic coursework includes internship programs and training opportunities at UFG’s headquarters in West Palm Beach, which includes mock stores for training franchisees. “The Titus Center for Franchising is an opportunity to help create future experts in the franchising industry,” said Titus. “Through this center, we’re passing valuable knowledge and experience on to the next generation of professional franchisees.”

Nova Southeastern University In October 2017, the Nova Southeastern University (NSU) College of Allopathic Medicine received preliminary accreditation. This milestone allows the new medical school to accept an inaugural class of 50 students into its innovative Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) program, beginning in August 2018. “The accreditation decision is a transformational moment in the history of NSU, which brings the university another step closer toward NSU’s Vision 2020 and its goal of becoming a nationally recognized, top-tier university for teaching, research, service and learning,” said NSU President Dr. George Hanbury. This newest degree program adds to NSU’s portfolio of health sciences degrees, including osteopathic medicine, dental medicine, pharmacy, optometry, nursing, physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy and others. Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) East Florida and its hospital network is the preferred academic medical partner of the new college, providing student training experiences in clinically relevant settings.

Historically High Graduation Rate The School District of Palm Beach County’s graduation rate for the 2016-2017 school year reached a historic high, ranking first among Florida’s large, urban school districts, according to the Florida Department of Education. The graduation rate for district-operated schools increased to 90 percent for the 2016-2017 school year.

Major redevelopment projects in West Palm Beach include The Bristol, a luxury waterfront condominium project; Broadstone at Clematis, a 322-unit apartment complex; and All Aboard Florida’s residential tower, with 275 units and retail/restaurant space directly behind the Brightline station. North of downtown, Related Group is planning the first two residential towers of Marina Village as part of a mixed-use development with Rybovich boatyard that will eventually include a marina, retail, offices, restaurants and marine industrial space. In Palm Beach Gardens, the Gardens Innovation Center is a 10-acre development with 63,500 square feet of office space. Shapiro | Pertnoy Companies is planning a business park with a million square feet of space on an 82-acre parcel in Jupiter. In Boca Raton, Penn-Florida has opened the first phase of Via Mizner, a $367 million mixed-use development to be anchored by the Mandarin Oriental hotel. In addition, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility opened at the Boca Raton Airport in May. New master-planned suburban communities with lifestyle amenities include Arden, a 1,200-acre Wellington community; Westlake, Minto Communities’ 3,800-acre development, which is Palm Beach County's newest city; Alton, a 206-acre Palm Beach Gardens development; and Avenir, which will have 3,250 homes, 1.94 million square feet of office space, 400,000 square feet of retail space, a 300-room hotel and a 55-acre public park. Another company taking advantage of the area’s dynamic residential market is Blackstone Group, whose affiliate Invitation Homes is purchasing and renting out single-family homes throughout the county. FCI Residential, a subsidiary of sugar producer Florida Crystals Corp., is also investing in the region’s residential market. In the next few years, the region will attract more young professionals, families, executives and entrepreneurs of all ages. According to U.S. Census Bureau estimates, Palm Beach County has one of the highest annual growth rates in the state, and its population of 1,443,810 could surpass 1.5 million by 2020. Palm Beach County will remain distinguished by its appealing equestrian facilities, beaches, scenic waterways, parks and natural areas. As the county continues to thrive, new transportation projects are also underway including new pedestrian and bicycle paths, commuter rail service and roadway improvements. “Our vision is a safe, efficient and connected multimodal transportation system,” said Nick Uhren, executive director, Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency. “Our five-year strategic plan places a priority on complete streets that safety accommodate both motorized and non-motorized users.” Recent projects include incorporating green-painted bike lanes on streets in West Palm Beach and Delray Beach. The new Brightline passenger rail service from West Palm Beach to Fort Lauderdale and Miami will complement the region’s Tri-Rail service, offering a new option for residents and visitors. Enhancements to the I-95 corridor are also underway, including the Spanish River intersection in Boca Raton that provides convenient access to Florida Atlantic University. Palm Beach International Airport and the Port of Palm Beach are investing in the future to continue meeting the needs of air travelers, cruise passengers and shippers seeking access to global markets. As BDB President and CEO Kelly Smallridge said, “Our county’s collaborative spirit is one of our biggest assets as we move forward together into the 21st century.”

U

nited Technology Corp. (UTC) has opened a $125 million Center for Intelligent Buildings to showcase its safe and sustainable technologies. The 224,000-square-foot building in Palm Beach Gardens will be the global headquarters for UTC’s $17 billion climate control and security business and add 480 jobs to Palm Beach County. “We’re a company that does many different things: HVAC, elevators, escalators, fire and security, building automation,” said Robert J. McDonough, president, UTC Climate, Controls & Security, at an April ribbon-cutting ceremony. This is the first place where all of this smart technology is under one roof. The new UTC Center for Intelligent Buildings will offer a world-class experience for global visitors, demonstrating the benefits of integrating energy-efficient systems and designs. “Its energy use will be less than half the typical office building,” McDonough said. “That’s an important step toward sustainability since buildings consume about 40 percent of the world’s energy.”

Innovation in Health Care In 2010, Lisa B. Bair was named one of the top women entrepreneurs in the U.S. by Ernst and Young. Three years later, she founded Quantuvis, which offers innovative technology solutions to help life sciences and health care companies increase revenue and profitability through improved decision-making. “Prior to Quantuvis, the way that managed care companies and pharmaceutical manufacturers negotiated for the cost of drugs was very manual,” said Bair, who is CEO of the West Palm Beach company. “Our technology allows both sides to compare proposed offers in real-time, improving

efficiency, reducing administration costs, and minimizing errors. The technology, when used to its full potential, will ideally translate into lower-cost access of U.S. consumers to their medications.” Quantuvis now serves about a dozen managed care organizations and more than 170 phama companies, and its headquarters workforce has doubled in size since 2013. The company’s engineering and development teams in Roslyn, Virginia, are also growing rapidly. “The choice to open up our headquarters initially in West Palm Beach was due to the fact that I was living in Palm Beach,” Bair said. “However, our staffers have chosen to relocate here from other parts of the country. There is a new vibe in downtown West Palm Beach, with younger professionals choosing opportunities to live and work here. It is hard to beat the quality of life here, and at Quantuvis we feel very proud to be part of that growth.”

A New Headquarters ScriptSender, a growing health care technology company, chose Palm Beach County for its world headquarters in 2017, bringing 25 jobs to the region. “It’s a move that made perfect sense for us,” said Chris Craft, founder and CEO. “There is a lot of traction here in terms of the business community, and a lot of support for growth in the technology sector in particular.” ScriptSender creates direct, secure, cost-effective communication solutions for health care organizations. Its technology enables one-click integration between physicians and external clinicians—a critical tool for seamless collaboration between health care providers. ScriptSender solves what had been a complex and expensive issue, bringing business and clinical benefits.

Bringing

South Florida Together

W

ith more than 6 million residents, thousands of businesses and a well-designed network of highways, South Florida is one of the nation’s largest and most dynamic metropolitan areas. The region’s three international airports and three major seaports – along with a diverse skilled workforce – are powerful magnets for leading U.S. and international companies. A new commuter rail service is making the area even more attractive, and is bringing Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties closer together. Brightline, a high-speed commuter rail system developed by All Aboard Florida, a wholly owned subsidiary of Florida East Coast Industries, is now operating between downtown West Palm Beach and downtown Miami and Orlando to follow. Its track parallels the well-established Tri-Rail commuter rail line to the west along I-95.

On Brightline, passengers travel from the downtown West Palm Beach station on Quadrille Boulevard to Fort Lauderdale’s downtown station in about 35 minutes or to downtown Miami in about 70 minutes, according to Patrick Goddard, Brightline CEO. “Our initial ridership has exceeded expectations,” Goddard told the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce in March. Along with the new regional rail service, South Florida’s economic development leaders are working together more closely than ever to attract Fortune 500 companies like Amazon. In 2017, the Seattle-based global technology company announced that the Miami metro region was on its short list of 20 U.S. cities for HQ2, a second headquarters location that could bring up to 50,000 new jobs to the metropolitan area. “Everyone has been really intrigued by the Amazon site selection process, and if they didn’t give any merit to South Florida before, they certainly do now,” said Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the Business Development Board. “From a public relations stance, it was a big win for us.” Bob Swindell, president and CEO of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, agreed. “The company with the most data in the world has said South Florida is a viable place for its headquarters. I think it silences the skeptics and the doubters.” Miami-Dade Beacon Council CEO Michael Finney said the South Florida region submitted eight sites for consideration: five in Miami-Dade, two in Broward and one in Palm Beach. Amazon is expected to make its choice in 2018. “We’ve got a ready and willing, capable workforce that is skilled in all the disciplines that a world-class tech company like Amazon would look for,” said Finney in a recent interview. “We are multilingual, and we cover multiple disciplines from software and IT to virtual reality and artificial intelligence and all the traditional business disciplines.”

An Attractive Region for Business South Florida is an ideal location for corporate headquarters for many reasons, including: n Eighth-largest MSA in the nation with more than 6 million residents n 53% speak a language other than English n Fastest regional job growth in the state n More than 300,000 college and university students n Nearly 80,000 information and communication technology workers n Desirable recruiting location n More than 200 corporate headquarters operations n Low business tax climate n No. 1 ranked region for start ups (Kauffman Foundation) n Three international airports n Seven executive airports n Three major seaports n Tri-Rail and Brightline commuter train service n Unparalleled access to markets in Latin America and the Caribbean n Convenient eastern time zone for businesses with multiple continents n South Florida's $340 billion economy ranks as one of the 50 largest in the world.

Florida Crystals Founders Inducted into Hall of Fame IN 1960, brothers Alfonso Fanjul and J. Pepe Fanjul founded a

sugarcane farming and milling company in Palm Beach County. Through the decades, their Florida Crystals Corporation has grown to include two sugar mills, a sugar refinery, a rice mill, a packaging and distribution center and the largest biomass renewable power plant in North America. In recognition of their achievements, the Fanjul brothers were recently inducted into the 2018 Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame. “We’ve come a long way since we planted our first crop in Florida nearly 60 years ago with our father and our uncle, and we’re very proud to be recognized by our peers,” said Alfonso Fanjul, chairman and CEO of Florida Crystals, which is headquartered in West Palm Beach. Florida Crystals also pioneered farming and milling of organic sugar in the United States – a major challenge in a subtropical climate. Florida Crystals continues to be the only producer of organic cane sugar products 100percent made in the U.S. – grown, harvested and milled in Florida. Its subsidiary ASR Group, which it owns in partnership with Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida, is the world’s largest cane sugar refining company. Through its FCI Residential Corporation subsidiary, the company develops, constructs and manages quality apartment homes and extraordinary communities. FCI Residential focuses its activities on multi family residential development in urban and in-fill areas. The company currently has more than 4,000 units in development throughout Florida. J. Pepe Fanjul said, ”We are so happy to be part of this vital industry in Florida, which supports 23,000 jobs and contributes more than $3 billion to the state’s economy. We have dedicated our lives to ensuring a strong and sustainable agricultural industry.”

The Glades is home to “The Crossroads of South Florida,” where State Road 80, connecting the east coast of Palm Beach County to the region, intersects with U.S.27, which connects the east and west coasts of Florida, making the region the ultimate epicenter for the state’s ever-growing distribution and logistics industry. The Glades is within a 100-mile radius of 85 percent of the State of Florida’s population The Glades is within one of only three Rural Areas of Opportunities for the state, allowing for special provisions and consideration in applications for the state’s economic development incentives programs. Education: The city of Pahokee offers a complete K-12 International Baccalaureate (IB) program at its elementary, middle and high schools which is rare for a community school system. PBS selected the Glades region for its most recent On The Town in the Palm Beaches special, highlighting the area’s history, world-class bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee, and the vital role of agriculture to the community. The Glades ranks No. 1 in the nation for both sugarcane and winter vegetable production.

Tellus Products Brings New Dimension to Region’s Agricultural Sector SUGARCANE

grown in western Palm Beach County now has a completely different use beyond sugar, molasses and energy production. Plates, bowls and take-out containers made from leftover sugarcane fiber are being produced for the first time in the U.S. at Tellus Products LLC just outside Belle Glade. The 120,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, constructed last year, was launched at a ribbon-cutting ceremony where Gov. Rick Scott, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and company officials spoke. The venture’s partners, sugar producers Florida Crystals Corp. and the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida, have invested $75 million and hired 50 people to operate the plant. More than 90 percent of its workforce is from the Glades region. The company expects to grow to $100 million and 100 jobs within five years at the facility. Matt Hoffman, Tellus president, said, “Take a moment to consider that our society uses 20 times more plastic than it did in the 1960s, and only 2 percent of that plastic is actually recycled. Estimates are that by 2050 that number could triple and our oceans will contain more pounds of plastic than pounds of fish.” Plastic items such as plates might only be used for five minutes, but can take a thousand years or more to decompose. The sugarcane fiber products are also more sustainable

than making paper plates from trees, as the cane grows much faster. “We have to ask ourselves if there is a better way. We have a solution. We can take a local crop that grows over 12 feet in 12 months, produce homegrown food and renewable energy and still have enough all-natural plant fiber to make sustainable products that displace plastic and Styrofoam and allow the same, convenient, single-serving use, but will go back to the ground and compost within 90 days,” Hoffman said. Tellus is the Latin word for earth. Hoffman said the company’s motto is: “From the plants we grow to the products we create, we consider the impact to the planet in everything we do. Tellus...Plant...Product…Planet.” Once harvested, the sugarcane is processed, and the water, sugar, molasses and sugarcane fiber, also called bagasse, are separated. Some of the fiber goes to create biomass power, and the rest goes to create a slurry that is dried. Through forming molds, the dried fiber is shaped into take-out containers, plates and bowls. Food service clients are the first customers, and consumers can buy the products through e-commerce. Pricing is expected to be comparable to that of good-quality paper plates. Hoffman said 35,000 plates can be produced from each ton of bagasse. The initiative was five years in the making. It began after Rob Sproull, vice president of marketing and product development with ASR Group, a company owned by Florida Crystals and the Cooperative, saw single-use plates made from sugarcane fiber at a trade show. He was told they were manufactured in Thailand and China. He pitched the idea to the Cooperative’s CEO, Antonio Contreras, and Florida Crystals’ executive vice president and chief financial officer, Luis Fernandez. Then several years of research began. Contreras said, “When we created Tellus, we had the option to site it next to any of our sugar facilities in the U.S.A. or at one of our factories internationally. In the end, we knew there was nowhere else we would want to continue to invest than here in Florida, which has a wonderful business climate, and more specifically in the Glades communities, which have been our home since the 1960s.”

Business/Financial Services FOR ERIC BECKER and Avy Stein, co-founders and

chairmen of Cresset Wealth Advisors, opening a West Palm Beach office was a natural choice. Both were already residents of Palm Beach County with extensive experience in private equity investment and a firsthand understanding of the region’s business/financial services market. “Soon after opening our Chicago office in January, we opened a temporary office in the Flagler Financial District,” said Becker. “By this fall, we will have a permanent office that can accommodate about 30 people, with plenty of space for team collaboration and client meetings.” Becker and Stein have already tapped the region’s deep financial services talent pool to bring in Doug Regan as chief executive officer and Jack Ablin as chief investment officer. “We offer concierge wealth management services including access to a robust platform for private investment in business and real estate,” Becker said. “Our firm already has more than $2 billion in assets under management, and we are very excited about growing our presence here.” Financial and business services firms continue to flock to Palm Beach County for a variety of reasons. “Companies from the Northeast are constantly contacting us,” said Kelly Smallridge, BDB president and CEO, noting that Florida has no personal income tax, lower operating expenses and convenient flights to New York City. Recent arrivals include private equity funds, hedge funds, asset managers and other financial firms, such as Affinia Capital, a boutique consultancy in Palm Beach that assists in structuring and raising capital for middle market companies and projects, and Chatham Lodging Trust, a real estate investment trust (REIT) based in West Palm Beach.

Since its launch in 2016, Integrity Implants has raised about $33 million in capital, grown its workforce to 39 positions, and is completing a new corporate headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens. “We will have more space for training surgeons, and for developing our future product pipeline,” Walsh said. Anchored by the Scripps Florida Research Institute and the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience at Florida Atlantic University’s Jupiter campus, the county’s life sciences, pharmaceutical and biomedical device sectors include startups, mid-size businesses and multinational leaders. Palm Beach County is also attracting new investment in the healthcare sector.

It is a joint venture with Tenet Healthcare’s ambulatory care services subsidiary, United Surgical Partners International. “Many Florida residents travel to HSS in New York for the highest-quality musculoskeletal care,” HSS President and CEO Louis A. Shapiro said. “We are delighted to be making that same top-quality care more convenient to South Florida where quality of life is so highly prized.” Staffed by HSS physicians, it would offer diagnostic services, ambulatory surgery, rehabilitation and sports performance assistance.

LIFE SCIENCES Palm Beach County’s life sciences cluster includes more than 200 innovative medical device, pharmaceutical, therapeutics, biotechnology and medical IT companies.

Manufacturing RGF ENVIRONMENTAL

Group is one of Palm Beach County’s manufacturing success stories. “We started here in 1985 with just two employees,” said Ron Fink, president and founder. “Today, we have grown to more than 150 men and women, most of them residing in Palm Beach County.” RGF makes more than 500 environmental products, serving a worldwide customer base. “Along with the great weather, Palm Beach County has a solid labor force,” Fink added. “Florida also has business-friendly tax policies, which is another reason we came here from the Northeast and have stayed put. It isn’t difficult to convince great employees to relocate to this area. And who would want to leave once they get to paradise?” More recently, Setomatic Systems, a manufacturer of payment technology systems for the laundry industry, decided to relocate its corporate headquarters from Farmingdale, New York to Boca Raton. The company will create 12 jobs with an average wage of $50,000, and it will make a capital investment of approximately $1.4 million.
