News and Record's fake news on the megasite, which isn't in Greensboro or even Guilford

Greensboro's star rises on low costs and political shifts

"Greensboro is now the nation’s low-cost leader for companies that want to open new advanced manufacturing operations, according to a new survey of top manufacturing regions by The Boyd Co., a top national site-selection consultant.

Which sells consulting on sites to companies looking for one

Only Canada’s Eastern Ontario region is more affordable among the 24 areas surveyed by Boyd.

...You’re at the top of the list at one of the more exciting times in 30 years,” Boyd said.

“It’s North Carolina’s turn” for major industry, Boyd said. “It’s the Triad’s turn.”

“There’s an enormous skills gap,” Boyd said. “Markets like the Triad have an enormous opportunity because of the world-renown workforce training.”

...To be successful beyond offering low costs, Boyd said, North Carolina must put HB 2 behind it and beef up a relatively weak corporate incentive package.

...“Any competent, diligent site selection search for advanced manufacturing in the Southeastern states,” Boyd said, “will look at the Randolph site.” [which isn't in Guilford County or Greensboro]

World-renowned?

Why is it the Triad's turn?

Why only 24 areas?

Where is the study?

Where's the list?

Why is Ontario on the list?

Who paid for the study?

Why would a site selection outfit do a study that otherwise, if they are trying to market the megasite?

Looks like you interviewed a propaganda outfit Richard;

"Boyd is a leading, internationally-recognized brand in the dynamic arena of corporate site selection. Boyd's five decades of strategic counsel and expert advice to corporate decision-makers, the investment and real estate communities, political leaders, economic development professionals and leading media outlets put it at the epi-center of the corporate mobility marketplace.

Each of Boyd's service channels are devoted to providing accurate and timely information to ensure that growing companies find the optimal location for their new facilities. All of this gives Boyd unparalleled reach into and influence within the trillion dollar business location marketplace.

..All Boyd activities are carried out in a highly confidential manner which cannot be traced back to the client. Secrecy and client anonymity are maintained throughout the study period. Boyd's regimented and well-tested investigative techniques avoid premature disclosure of your plans, preventing troublesome labor and competitive repercussions. ...Moreover, representation by Boyd can bring instant credibility to your undisclosed project and afford it prompt access to top-level government officials, influential community leaders and economic development organizations."

"While the services of real estate professionals and economic development agencies are sometimes helpful, their scope of interest is often restricted to the properties and locales that they are promoting.

Boyd specializes exclusively in the field of business relocation. While the corporate site selection decision is an infrequent event for you, Boyd is constantly monitoring business climates, labor conditions, cost trends, incentive programs and other more subtle geographic variables often overlooked by the inexperienced or the generalist.

Boyd will objectively and independently recommend the optimal city and site for your project and do so free from the sometimes conflicting influences of downstream commissions tied to real estate transactions or ancillary consulting packages.'

Boyd fees are moderate and usually justified many times over by operating cost savings between an acceptable location and the optimal site for your new facility. Boyd's all-inclusive fee is also much less than the cost of assigning your own executive and technical staff. In addition to performing comprehensive corporate location studies, Boyd can also conduct low-cost component investigations, including targeted labor market assessments and comparative economic analyses establishing preliminary feasibility of your new project."

Did someone call you Richard, or did you call them?

Who called you to do the 'study'?
