Abstract
  • When economic growth is desired in a community, the community's officials often try to attract a manufacturing company. The community's officials' desires often compliment desires of a manufacturing company's officials to find a new location to operate their business. The officials of Culver, Oregon undertook activities to try to attract a manufacturer and succeeded when the officials of Bramco, Incorporated decided to move the company to Culver. This study was undertaken to determine reasons for Culver officials' activities and Bramco's relocation. Information was collected predominantly from personal and phone interviews. In addition, a small amount of information was collected from Oreron economic bulletins. It was found that Culver officials' motivation for wanting to attract a manufacturer was to find a stimulus to increase the community's tax base, so the town could pay for a sewage treatment facility the community was ordered to install. Bramco's relocation was found to be predominantly due to the loss of the lease the company had on buildings that housed the company in Canby, Oregon. Key Words: Relocation, Expectations, and Impacts.
