Seminole County

Seminole County is a hotbed for high tech and other industry growth.

With a business climate that has fostered quality development, this county has become home to a plethora of equally dynamic corporations.

Industry growth in Seminole has taken several forms. Most notable is the establishment of corporate headquarters, such as American Automobile Association (AAA), Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Scholastic Book Fairs and Sears Home Improvement Products, as well as the emergence of many high tech companies, including CuraScript, NCR, Faro Technologies, Deloitte IT Consulting and Convergys. On-going expansion at the Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), coupled with the state's largest foreign trade zone designation, has helped SFB become the third most active international airport in Florida and the 12th most active in the United States.

Seminole County has prepared for growth with everything from a new expressway to pre-approved development sites, specialized job training and infrastructure incentives. The county's public-school system is rated among the highest in the state, and the median household effective buying income is the highest in the region. The municipalities of Oviedo and Winter Springs consistently rank as best places to live by CNN Money Magazine.
