4 Major Military Installations

Our infrastructure, competitive business climate and access to talent are just a few reasons why companies like GE Oil & Gas and Saft America are choosing Jacksonville as the place to grow.

Whether you are looking to build a new facility or move into an existing structure, we have the space for you. Construction costs are 15 percent lower than the U.S. average and the cost to lease industrial space is $4.27, which is below most major metro areas.

The region’s strong military presence is one of the unique assets your company can benefit from. With 75,000 active duty, reserve, and civilian men and women, the military is the largest employer in the region and is the 3rd largest military population in the country. Each year, more than 3,000 personnel retire from the military and choose to stay in Jacksonville, which provides a highly skilled talent base.

As the westernmost location along the East Coast, your company would be uniquely positioned within an eight-hour drive of the entire Southeastern consumer market. Couple that with our logistics infrastructure, international trade opportunities and the products you manufacture can easily be shipped anywhere in the world.
