The Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation received an Award of Merit for their recent Economic Development Guide publication, which focused on the bio-medical industry in the SCV.

The California Association for Local Economic Development - or CALED - notified the SCVED that it was an award winner for the second year in a row in the “Promotions” category.

The guide has been a principal resource for business attraction efforts in collaboration with other materials providing information about the Santa Clarita Valley, both in lifestyle and business opportunities, as well as advantages to doing business in the SCV, a spokesperson for the SCVEDC said.

The 2012 Economic Development Guide focused on the biomedical and medical devices industry, highlighting local companies such as Advanced Bionics, Boston Scientific, the Alfred Mann Foundation and more. It also showcased the Santa Clarita Valley’s lifestyle appeal for businesses and quality of life for their executives and employees alike, the spokesperson said.

“Many do not realize the incredible biomedical businesses we have in the Santa Clarita Valley,” stated Don Fleming, SCVEDC co-chairman. “The SCV is home to industry leading companies that are improving the quality of life for individuals each moment of everyday.”

CALED is provided resources to economic development agencies within California as well as lobbies state legislators to focus on attracting and retaining businesses in the state.

Receiving the merit award for promotions, the SCVEDC’s publication was reviewed against competitors that submitted comprehensive and multi-faceted programs. The Guide was honored as a stand-alone piece, the spokesperson said.

“We are thrilled to receive this award not once, but two consecutive years in a row,” said Jonas Peterson, SCVEDC president and CEO. “The award offers validation that work we are doing here in the Santa Clarita Valley is being noticed and making an impact.”

The SCVED worked with The Signal to produce two economic guides for 2011 an 2012. The SCVEDC will be recognized at a formal award presentation at the CALED annual conference in Long Beach on April 11.
