NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With a goal of supporting and driving economic growth and prosperity in the rapidly expanding Gulf Coast region, Entergy has developed and launched a freestanding website designed to attract site selectors and companies looking to potentially expand in the four states served by its utilities. The site, GoEntergy.com, will quickly place the Entergy region in the consideration set of these businesses, powering jobs and economic growth in the region.
"We're a one-stop gateway to the United States' largest industrial region," said John Voorhorst, director of Entergy's business development services. "Our website is just one of the first steps in Entergy's strategy to attract business and industry that will provide increased employment and economic opportunities for the citizens we serve."
Entergy actively participates in the region's economic development process and works closely with state agencies and local communities to promote economic growth. The new website provides companies with access to essential information to locate, expand and promote their company in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. It also supports the efforts of Entergy's business development teams, which provide companies with services in site selection, project management, large projects and contracts.
The site contains detailed regional information, showcases featured sites and provides relevant news for key industries.
"We are constantly improving our economic development efforts," Voorhorst added, "and our website is just one component within a suite of digital tools Entergy has under development to meet the needs of businesses, economic developers and the communities we serve. We will continue to play an integral role in the ongoing industrial expansion taking place in our own backyard."
