Brevard County Grants MC Assembly Tax Breaks
By Space Coast Daily // January 7, 2014
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – MC Assembly was granted more than $850,000 in property tax breaks today by the Brevard County Commission. The vote was 4-1, with Commissioner Trudie Infantini dissenting.
Late last year, MC Assembly said they would relocate more than 500 jobs from the company’s Palm Bay plant to their plant in Mexico if it did not receive tax breaks from state and local authorities.
As a condition to the tax considerations, MC Assembly must make a $17 million capital investment. The company said they are planning to move from their facility in Palm Bay to a larger building located at 425 North Drive in Melbourne.
MC Assembly, which is headquartered in Palm Bay, was founded in 1984 as a printed circuit board test facility, and became a provider of full turnkey contract manufacturing services in 1989. The company also has a Boston facility that serves the same markets, and with the same capabilities as their Brevard County facility.
According to the MC Assembly website, “The company opened a low cost labor manufacturing facility in central Mexico near the town of Zacatecas. A ‘copy exact’ model of our Florida facility, we now are able to support our customers with the same service offerings we deploy in the United States and utilize Mexico’s lower labor rates.”
