Businesses and developers need access to technical and financial tools to maximize their project success. Mount Pleasant engages the Racine County Economic Development Corporation (RCEDC) to facilitate its local economic development projects. This partnership has resulted in several expansion projects such as Ashley Capital, Seda North America, O&H Danish Bakery, iDental, and InSinkerator. Recruitment projects have included Fiduciary Real Estate Development, Foxconn, ND Packaging, and Kowal Investment Group.
RCEDC is a private, non-profit organization with access to incentives, grants, and loans to accomplish expansion, relocation, and financing projects. Because finding talent is also important to our local businesses, RCEDC added a talent attraction program to benefit Mount Pleasant employers.
RCEDC is the first point of contact for businesses planning expansions, relocations, and financing projects in Racine County.
