Global Site Location Industries (GSLI), a leading site selection and economic development consulting firm, is pleased to welcome Imperial County, California, to the GSLI Elite family. Through their lead generation partnership, GSLI will assist Imperial County in developing relationships with site location decision-makers from companies planning facility expansions or relocations.

“The industry clusters we have been focusing on for the last 15 years are all coming to fruition. Renewable energy, renewable transportation fuels, logistics and warehousing, data centers, advanced manufacturing are all accelerating,” said Timothy Kelly, President of Imperial Valley Economic Development Corporation.

“With a rich agriculture history, many companies operate in our region because of our unique growing season, such as Doc’s Organics, and we are very proud of One World Beef Packers which has put our cattle ranches into the finest restaurants.

“Our geothermal industry leads North America in production of power and now with the extraction of mineral from the geothermal brine, Berkshire Hathaway, Energy Source Minerals, Controlled Thermal Resources, Ormat and others have the opportunity to take a successful industry and expand into a global powerhouse we call Lithium Valley.”

GSLI Elite Locations are hand-picked for exhibiting a commitment to economic development, a motivation to be the best places in the country to locate a business, and willingness to work closely with all the principals in an economic development project to create all-around wins.

GSLI will focus its efforts on targeted expansion projects and developing relationships with key decision-makers through aggressive outreach on Imperial County’s behalf.
