From storefront start-ups and retail chains, to manufacturers and industrial relocations, Hamilton County has the buildings, shovel-ready land, infrastructure, workforce and Southern hospitality to be your partner in growth.

In Hamilton County, we greet growing businesses with serious Southern hospitality. “Our mission is to help businesses looking for the ideal location, a trained and ready labor pool, ample property and a partner with the right incentives,” says Susan Ramsey, executive director of the Hamilton County Development Authority (HCDA), an independent special district for county-wide economic development. “Combine our business infrastructure with an unmatched natural environment, and it’s no surprise companies are calling Hamilton County their home.”

Hamilton County lives at the crossroads of commerce, logistics and lifestyle. We’re Florida’s first county along Interstate 75. Interstate 10 nearby leads to two airports and runs from the deep-water port of Jacksonville straight to the Pacific. Norfolk Southern Railways is our connection to the east.

Employers looking for a skilled, millennial workforce will find applicants or training partners at North Florida Community College, River Oak Technical College, the University of Florida and Florida State University.

Centrally located and business friendly, we’re Hamilton County — Florida’s Front Porch. Read more.
