Business Climate

In Wayne County, many have discovered the true partnership that exists between government, business, education and other organizations. The effort to build a supportive environment has carried on for many years with outstanding results. According to the WEDC's president Rod Crider,


"This is a partnership that's working. The cooperation is 100 percent. The lines of communication are totally open. It's a wonderful situation of the county, cities and private leadership coming together. The chemistry in this environment just doesn't exist in many cities around the country where they have turf battles and territorial jealousies. Those are all gone here."


This unique spirit of teamwork is demonstrated by the membership of the Wayne Economic Development Council where members of local education institutions, businesses, downtown development organizations, and government come together in a collaborative effort to grow a quality future for the entire county. 

From providing loan assistance and other incentives to fast track permitting and infrastructure assistance, local governments in Wayne County are dedicated to your success. In addition to  government partners are a number of other business assistance service organizations providing a vast array of programs assistance. And, if it's not available, just ask.  You won't find a team more dedicated to serving your interests.
