Today, Governor Rick Scott announced that recently merged companies, Office Depot and OfficeMax, will setup a new global headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida.
Governor Scott said, “We worked hard to win this new headquarters for Florida – and today’s victory will no doubt be a game changer for Florida and Boca Raton. With the assets of OfficeMax and Office Depot, this newly formed Fortune 300 Company will add more jobs and capital investment, retain 2,000 existing jobs, and create new opportunities for Florida families.
“Today’s win builds on this year’s news that Hertz – another Fortune 300 Company – is relocating their headquarters to Southwest, Florida. Our success in landing the headquarters of two Fortune 300 companies in one year is remarkable. It’s the result of our work to create an opportunity economy with low taxes that allows innovators and job creators to succeed.
“While this is a huge victory for Florida, our work isn’t done. We’ll continue working hard to create an opportunity economy that creates more opportunities for families to succeed for generations to come.”
