Helping an Automotive Company Break Into the U.S. Market
A Canadian auto company was determined to enter the U.S. market and launch a new electric vehicle.
Prior to successfully breaking into a new market, the client needed to ensure they would be able to overcome any supply chain disruption and cost challenges.
Additionally, leadership needed assistance with launch, including:
Assessing various locations and selecting an optimal site for production
Building relationships with local political leaders
Negotiating an incentives package
BDO’s Site Selection & Incentives team conducted a confidential national site selection process, evaluating over 30 sites in a dozen states.
BDO assessed various options and negotiated a high-value discretionary incentives package.
BDO built relationships with and continues to serve as a liaison between the organization and state and local officials.
The company is on track to create 500 new positions in the North American market.
The incentives package will offset a significant percentage of the company’s operating costs.
Direct, high-level political support will allow the client to seek input from influential parties to further develop the ecosystem.
