3 newcomer companies pledge jobs
By Scott Blake
Three companies that moved to Greater Miami have pledged to create 84 jobs over the next three years.
The three firms also pledged to make a total of $3.25 million in capital investments.
"This is an exciting time as more and more companies are seeing Miami-Dade County as the business destination of the future," said Frank Nero, president and CEO of the Beacon Council, Miami-Dade County's economic development partnership.
The council, which helped the companies secure financial incentives and provided them with other assistance, announced the new jobs last week.
The three companies are:
The Mantha Group, a maker of wedding accessories. The company has opened its main manufacturing facility in Miami's Central Enterprise Zone. It has pledged to create 60 jobs and to make $500,000 in capital investment.
The council assisted Mantha with state and local incentives, site selection, research and marketing analysis, job training, and business contacts and referrals.
Clean, Clean Inc., a maker of personal care wipes for retailers, healthcare, corporate and government institutions.
The company relocated to Hialeah from Broward County. The company has opened an 18,479-square-foot production and distribution facility, pledging to add 16 full-time jobs and to make a capital investment of $1.75 million.
The council assisted the company with permitting, financing, manufacturing, and contacts and referrals.
nCosas, a Chile-based Spanish language economic and travel magazine. The publication has opened a sales and marketing office on Brickell Avenue in Miami under the name Cosas International.
The company has pledged to make $1 million in capital investment and to create eight full-time jobs. The council assisted Cosas with research and market analysis, business contacts and referrals, and general business information.
