decision makingGLDPartners provides comprehensive corporate facility location advisory services to companies that have global manufacturing and distribution markets. We work globally from our office bases in North America and Europe on new facilities, consolidation projects and market entry projects. GLDPartners has a keen understanding of supply chain strategy, transportation and logistics, property development, and we also are quite familiar with working with public bodies on permitting and approvals, supporting or joint infrastructure, foreign trade zone entry, labor force support and financial incentives.

We have a strong track record – our team understands how to position projects for incentive negotiation so that a project is seen as a success for all sides.
