The Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation (LACDC) hired AngelouEconomics to conduct a Target Industry Analysis and business attraction campaign. Using demographic, economic, and workforce data for the region, AE recommended target industries that best aligned with LACDC’s economic goals for the community. Utilizing occupation and business databases as well its own corporate and site selection contacts, AE then compiled geographically-based businesses lists that matched target industry NAICs. AE used these lists to set up interviews and client recruitment trips. Even in the current economy, trips have been very successful. Multiple companies are currently engaged with the LACDC to set up operations in Los Alamos.
