“Troy, Michigan was strategically chosen due to its close location to many automotive OEMs and Tier 1 companies. The convenient location to these industries provides a readily accessible talent pool, in which ARi can grow our rapidly expanding Troy team. We were not only attracted to Troy due to its strategic business location, but also the culture and charm. There is no shortage of events or activities in this active, vibrant and business-friendly city. With many restaurants, malls, and businesses occupying the metropolitan area, this city feels like an extension of Detroit. Our office is only a 30-minute drive from the airport, as well nearby to many residential communities, optimal for any new employee."

"When looking for the city to launch our business, we looked at sites from Boston to Miami and decided on Troy. Troy provided a strong economy and demographics, strong schools and wonderful sense of community. Moving from Ohio to Troy to start a business was a big life change but we could not be happier to have selected Troy for the flagship location of AirTime Trampoline. Everyone at City Hall have been wonderful advocates for our business and have helped in making AirTime a success. We are launching three new locations in Michigan and have plans for international expansion as well. Thank you to the City of Troy. You have made Troy feel like home."

Every town and civilization was created around rivers and ports because of the easy access to commerce, visibility to others, and efficiency to nearby support. Troy has everything my business needs. Visibility of our building and presence, food and amazing lunch spots near by to make for efficient days for our team, and a network of business men and women stronger than anywhere else in the area."

“The City of Troy has a distinguished business-friendly attitude. Our company, UBT, purchased a building in Troy and completely redesigned it with “green” technology including geothermal wells, radiant heating, foam insulation, white PVC membrane roof technology, energy efficient lighting and electrical components, and recycled bamboo furniture. When we experienced obstacles with plumbing and our geothermal wells throughout the redesign, the City of Troy was fantastic in obtaining the pertinent historical data we needed to make the repairs and move our team into our new home. And to our pleasant surprise, the City of Troy followed up in person to verify that our construction was running smoothly so that we could safely operate our business once we settled in. We are extremely happy to have relocated to Troy and would highly recommend this city to any business looking for a new home!"
