Expand Your Business
Congratulations! Your company’s success has reached the next stage, and you’re ready to expand your operations here in Henderson. It’s a great achievement—and an important opportunity. Now it’s time to let the Henderson economic development team go to work with services to help you realize the greatest gain from your new growth.
Finding a location. With more than 5 million square feet of office space, and more than 15 million square feet of industrial space, Henderson has the options to expand your opportunity. Let us help you navigate a successful search with site tours and evaluation of properties.
Locating funding and incentives. Whether resulting from a startup or an expansion, job creation is valued and rewarded here. For example, for qualified projects, Nevada’s Silver State Works program offers employers up to $2,000 per new hire in incentive reimbursements or training allowances. Henderson’s economic development team is also here to connect your operation to other funding sources. You’re ready to expand; we’re ready to help you make that happen.
And keep in mind as building plans are drawn up, either for new construction or retrofit of an existing building, that Nevada offers tax abatements for those new or existing buildings that meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) or Green Globes criteria.
Fast-tracked licensing and permitting. The Red Team at Henderson’s Development Services Center brings together seven city departments for one-stop streamlined service that moves your project forward with ease and speed.
Staffing up strong. For your expanded workforce, recruit, screen and train expeditiously with the support of strategic partners like Southern Nevada’s Workforce Connections and College of Southern Nevada Division of Workforce and Employment.
Promoting your success. As your expansion unfolds, the Henderson economic development team works with local and national media to provide timely updates, from ground-breaking through ribbon cutting. We’ll also help you spread the good news through our web presence and social media channels.
