more than magic Is Made in Orlando Advanced Manufacturing

Orlando is the heart of Florida manufacturing in the new age, home to a high volume of tech transfer and commercialization that’s fueled by a top R&D university, specialized research labs/centers and one of the top technology incubation systems and research parks in the country. Orlando is one of the world’s few quinti-modal transportation centers, making transporting easily accessible through land, air, sea, rail and even space. And with the advanced manufacturing fabrication lab Center for Neovation tackling big challenges like the “Internet of Everything,” this is one industry set to skyrocket in the region.

Industrial Development Revenue Bonds (IDRB)

Manufacturing companies in Orlando and not-for-profit corporations are eligible to apply for IDRB financing, a federal program, administered by the state at the local level. Bond financing can provide up to 100 percent funding of a qualified project within federally specified dollar limits. IDRBs are beneficial to qualified companies as they are longer term and available at a lower interest rate than most commercial loans. The interest on the bonds has preferable income tax treatment by the IRS and those savings are passed along to the user. Like commercial loans, IDRB approval is related to the company’s credit worthiness. It’s one more reason Florida’s manufacturing industry is so competitive.
