| What Clients Say About LocationSelector.com|
I am writing this to recommend the corporate site selection services of Investment Consulting Associates (“ICA”). ICA has been engaged by Knowles, a US stock listed company producing hearing instruments, to conduct a full scale plant location analysis, in order to optimize our Asian manufacturing footprint. Departing from a long list of 15 countries, their systematical approach supported with their software platform LocationSelector.com and well managed site visits, led us to a logical and widely supported location choice. Their knowledge and attention to detail have aided and guided our company throughout the whole location and site selection process. In terms of size and importance, there are up to 5,000 employees involved with this significant investment project.
I feel confident in recommending ICA’s services for similar kind of corporate site selection projects, not only in Asia but also in other emerging economies throughout the world. The consultants are not only thorough, but also easy to work with, and always willing and flexible to take the time to discuss and address our questions in a professional manner.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

Corporate location and site selection is a delicate matter, with many different criteria shaping a rationale outcome. Surprisingly, still many location decisions are based on perceptions and images. LocationSelector supports the decision making process in a much more transparent and fact based way. A powerful tool which I would recommend to anyone dealing with this difficult topic.
