Bryant Fuel Systems

BFS engaged CMTC to assist in planning the move, help design new processes that would incorporate automated equipment, and assist in developing a strategic plan with financial projections that would enable it to obtain the finances needed to make the move.  CMTC also helped by introducing BFS to the Cal Competes program managed by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.  This program provides California income tax credits to companies that agree to remain in California and relocate to an area of high unemployment within the state.  CMTC provided assistance in completing the application on behalf of BFS and worked with management in locating alternative sites within California.
