Plant City’s time is right now! In early 2015, the community came together to explore the option of creating its own economic development organization. In September of that year, the Plant City Economic Development Corporation was officially formed to market Eastern Hillsborough County as a premier business destination along central Florida’s I-4 corridor. Through public and private investments, the PCEDC aggressively recruits new companies while facilitating expansions of local companies. Through its investors, the PCEDC partners with other government and civic organizations to ensure Plant City grows in a smart and sustainable fashion while staying true to its culture and history.
