About GLS

who we are

We are an experienced team with unique perspectives, united in our mission, strategy, and purpose. We are driven by our ambition and the power of technology to drive human progress. We are unwavering in our commitment to providing insight, foresight, and oversight for location decisions.  

Seamlessly melding strategy and “boots on the ground” technical knowledge, Global Location Strategies (GLS) has offered location strategysite selection, and incentives negotiation services for companies since the early 1970s. Our time-tested methodology coupled with state-of-the-art technology and applied experience enables us to identify the best location for our client's operation, no matter where in the world while avoiding location pitfalls. And because we understand how corporations make location decisions, we leverage that knowledge to help communities, regions, and states compete for investments that provide high-quality jobs. While working alongside businesses and economic developers, we take pride in matching companies and communities for mutual, long-term prosperity.

transformation through technology 

We are more than just a consulting company. In 2019, we began a mission to redefine what it means to be a called a site selector. GLS envisions a future where the science of site selection is accessible to all. Whether our team manages your project or you lead the way by licensing our technology platforms, we have the tools and resources you have been searching for and we are invested in your success.

world-class talent

Support your team by engaging with ours. To complement our benchmarking and site selection expertise, we have access to world-class engineering, logistics modeling, utility assessment, technical site due diligence, and incentive negotiation talent. We are also proud members of the Site Selectors Guild, International Economic Development Council, European American Chamber of Commerce, and the Greenville Chamber.
