Palm Beach is where two companies are relocating and bringing jobs.

Florida Governor Rick Scott recently declared September to be Workforce Development Month in an effort to boost company morale and refocus economic efforts on job creation. Shortly after his announcement, it became known that two companies have plans to call the moving trucks, pack up their supplies and relocate to Palm Beach County, bringing 140 new available jobs with them.

West Palm Beach, Florida, news provider WPBF reported the Palm Beach County Business Development Board had been working on different campaigns to attract businesses in other states to relocate to the local community. The official announcement of what two major companies will be moving their business to the county will take place at the Boca Raton Resort ad Club. BDB officials and CEOs of the companies will formally address the community and discuss the significant impact the relocations will have on residents and the local economy.

Another company looking to relocate to a warmer climate, Sligh Furniture Company based out of Holland, Michigan, and currently operating out of Grand Rapids, has decided to pack up its business and move to North Carolina, Michigan Live reported. Sligh, once known as Furniture City USA, will follow numerous other furniture companies that have migrated to the southeast shoreline over the past few decades.

Sligh was acquired by Lexington Home Brands from High Point, North Carolina, which owns other brands including Tommy Bahama Home and Henry Link Trading Company. Rob Sligh will remain the president of the company and take on the role of senior vice president of business development at Lexington.
