SCVEDC awards Scorpion the SCV Industry Cluster Attraction Incentive!

Last week, the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC) awarded its Industry Cluster Attraction Incentive to Scorpion, a leading Information Technology company in the Santa Clarita Valley. Scorpion is constructing a new Headquarters in the Santa Clarita Valley, with construction set to be completed later this year. The incentive reimburses Scorpion for permit fees incurred during the permitting process of up to $40,000, and is just one of the many SCV business services and resources provided by the SCVEDC.

The 2017 Santa Clarita Economic Outlook Conference

Each year, the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC) and College of the Canyons (COC) host the Spring release of the Santa Clarita Economic Outlook Forecast at the Santa Clarita Economic Outlook Conference.  Mark Schniepp, Director of the California Economic Forecast, and Mark Vitner, Managing Director, Senior Economist at Wells Fargo, this year’s featured economists, will provide an in-depth forecast of our national and local economies, as well as discuss global megatrends.

The City of Santa Clarita and its partners work hard to make sure that doing business here is a profitable experience for businesses. Through the SCVEDC and other business groups, we have been very successful in attracting new businesses and creating a healthy climate for business expansion.

SCVEDC provided critical information our executive team needed to evaluate the various locations we were considering. Without SCVEDC, I believe Logix would have selected a different location for its HQ.
