PCEDC Services

The development needs of your business drive the Pierce County Economic Development Corporation.  Our stock in trade is INFORMATION – up to date, comprehensive, and customized to fit your unique business requirements.  We were created 20 years ago as a public-private partnership to encourage business and community development in Pierce County and the City of River Falls.  While our county’s economic landscape has changed over the past 20 years, but the need to respond effectively to economic opportunities has not.  As a private, not-for-profit corporation, we maintain strict confidentiality of your sensitive business information as we discuss


FINANCING

The lifeblood of business. We stay on top of the dozens of available business financing programs and their requirements so that we can quickly identify the best capital structure for your project investment.  (And we’ll create our own when there’s a gap in the market.)


PLANNING

Building a project “on paper” and thoroughly examining the downstream, strategic implications is both an art and a science.  We have a variety of resources to assist you, including the  experience of Steve DeWald, director of our Small Business Development Center; the expertise of our 19 member volunteer Board of Directors; explore the capabilities of UW—River Falls’ College of Business and Economics and UW – Stout’s Northwest Manufacturing Outreach Center; then factor in the networking power in our Chambers of Commerce and regional development coalitions, and you’ll find the planning resources you need to maximize your options and probability of success. 


LOGISTICS

We stay up to date with our local and regional industrial property markets along with local trucking, warehousing, and supply chain management resources. 


SUPPORT SERVICES

While we maintain our picturesque rural character, you may be surprised at the depth, breadth, and quality of our local business support services.  From creative services to machine shops to full service accounting, legal, consulting, engineering, design, and construction services, our local providers give you local access, responsive service, and cost effective results from our western Wisconsin locations.  We’ll provide the contacts for you to investigate in detail.   


STAFFING

Our county’s businesses take advantage of a rare combination of top quality educational systems, customized training resources, and a strong work ethic among Pierce County’s people.  We’ll be glad to prepare a labor market analysis to your specifications and help your human resource managers design recruitment and training strategies to complement your financing investigation.
