Business Recruitment

Union County has much to offer a business seeking to relocate or expand—

             available, shovel-ready building sites,

                       a skilled workforce, and

                                   competitive costs of doing business.


To promote Union County’s assets and target its marketing resources, the UCEDC has partnered with Union County and the City of La Grande, as well as private sector support such as Avista Utilities, to implement a business recruitment strategy.

The Business Recruitment Program builds on the County’s community readiness to respond to business leads by developing a proactive recruitment strategy.  The Business Recruitment Program focuses its recruitment resources on target industries that can benefit from the County’s assets and match the economic development vision of the community.

The Business Recruitment Program is empowered by the program steering committee composed  of dedicated volunteers who recognize the commitment of time and resources required for a successful business recruitment strategy.

The 2011-12 Recruitment Program emphasis has been on the following industries:

  •    Manufacturing
  •    RV Industry Supply Support
  •    Secondary Wood Products
