In this issue, we tap the expertise of contributors in three important, and growing, fields: biotechnology, medical manufacturing and agriculture/food processing. In our feature on biotech, one of the important areas we focus on is access to a qualified workforce. While site location is, of course, important, so is a skilled workforce that’s capable of keeping pace with advances in the industry, ensuring continued innovation and success. For medical manufacturing, there are many options to consider when it comes to site selection. The medtech field is expected to see continued growth and expansion—and location changes are expected to be part of the strategic choices facing decision-makers. Food manufacturing executives know that proper location of their facilities can have a dramatic impact on operational and cost-related variables—which can go well beyond the initial cost for the real estate itself. Our Sites & Programs topic this issue also deals with food and agriculture production.
