biz_logo_edcThe Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corp. received a significant honor last week from the California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED) and was notified as a recipient of an Award of Merit for its recent Economic Development Guide publication. This is the second year in a row that the SCVEDC has received an award for this publication in the Promotions category.

Working with significant partners, such as The Signal, the Guide has been a principal resource for business attraction efforts in collaboration with other materials providing information about the Santa Clarita Valley, both in lifestyle and business opportunities, as well as advantages to doing business in the Santa Clarita Valley.

The 2012 Economic Development Guide focused on the Biomedical/ Medical Devices industry, highlighting local companies such as Advanced Bionics, Boston Scientific, the Alfred Mann Foundation and more. Additionally, the Guide showcases the Santa Clarita Valley’s lifestyle appeal and accolades.

“Many do not realize the incredible biomedical businesses we have in the Santa Clarita Valley,” stated Don Fleming, SCVEDC Co-Chairman. “The SCV is home to industry leading companies that are improving the quality of life for individuals each moment of everyday. That’s extremely powerful and noble and we’re proud to have them as part of our business community,” he added.

Speaking to the substance and prestige of the Guide, it was awarded in a category against competitors that submitted comprehensive and multi-faceted programs. The Guide was honored as a stand-alone piece.

CALED is one of the most well-respected California agencies when it comes to providing resources to economic development agencies within the state. CALED serves as an information hub to all of its members providing information and services relating to business attraction and retention, employee training, legislation and lobbying and more.

“We are thrilled to receive this award not once, but two consecutive years in a row,” remarked SCVEDC President/CEO Jonas Peterson. “The award offers validation that work we are doing here in the Santa Clarita Valley is being noticed and making an impact,” he added.

The SCVEDC will be recognized at a formal award presentation at the CALED annual conference in Long Beach on April 11, 2013.
