Early this year Bloomberg ranked Oregon the number one state in the country in terms of its economic health. This fact and more was highlighted in the May edition of United Airlines’ Hemispheres magazine, where SEDCOR President Chad Freeman was quoted. SEDCOR captured both editorial and advertising space in a 32-page pullout piece focused on Oregon called “Dossier.”


The story highlights the Willamette Valley as rich with agricultural, food processing, technology, distribution and aviation industries.


“It’s growing too,” noted the publication. “Strategic Economic Development Corporation (SEDCOR), the lead economic development entity for the three-county Mid-Willamette Valley, reports that $146 million of business investment has been made here in the last three years, equating to more than 2,000 new and retained jobs. Looking ahead, one of the assets SEDCOR can work with is the Mill Creek Corporate Center in Salem, the largest available shovel-ready land in the state. Already home to facilities for Home Depot and FedEx, within three miles of I-5, it’s primed to help drive economic development in the region for years to come.”
