The Delaware County Commerce Center can assist businesses in the search for commercial and industrial property, and provide information essential to the location decision process. We also manage all available federal, state, and local incentive programs. We aid in the process of starting a business, and help to address any workforce development issues. We can also act as a liaison for companies in working with the local municipalities and state agencies.
Since we are a one-stop shop, we are proud of our ability to respond quickly to the needs of businesses and will gladly give any company examples of how we were able to take businesses through the relocation or expansion process with ease.
The Mission of the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce is to enhance your business, other businesses throughout the region and promote the economic well-being of the county.
We focus on providing valuable benefits, strengthening the quality of life within the community, serving as your liaison between business and government, and preparing our future workforce.
