We are fortunate to have a wide variety of businesses, and industry clusters, in Indian River County. 

  • This video highlights of one of our local manufacturers, Girard Equipment. Tim Girard, the President/CEO, summarizes his experience in relocating his company from New Jersey to Indian River County. 
  • Blue Dog Business Services is a great local company that we assisted with their expansion plans.  Headquartered in Vero Beach, this video of Ron Dichter, CEO, explains why he chose to remain and grow his company in Vero Beach rather than relocating elsewhere.
  • Dragonfly Boatworks is another great small business located in Vero Beach, manufacturing stand-up paddelboards, kayaks and small fishing boats.  The Owner, Mark Castlow, is very community-oriented, as you can see from his video.
  • After searching world-wide, Parabel chose Indian River County as the location to grow and process lentein, a natural product used in the health food industry.  As CEO Anthony Tiarks states in this video, transportation played a key role in their decision.
