Talbot County is host to seven industrial parks with space for emerging companies to expand. These parks offer secure sites with high-speed fiber infrastructure, connections to major roadways, and access to over 90 critical federal labs and facilities within a 90-mile commute. Town-owned utilities, and the lowest real property tax rate in the state, offer a competitive advantage.
Talbot County’s 1,500 businesses draw employees from a population base of 166,000 in a 25-mile radius of downtown Easton. You will find a highly educated and talented workforce, poised to facilitate growth and expansion for a diverse business base. Talbot County targets environment, agriculture, healthcare and information technologies as growth sectors to support the future economic base.
Easton hosts a National General Aviation Airport, the highest classification for a general aviation airport in the United States, and a designation which reflects its importance and contribution to the National Airspace System. The Airport includes an FAA Contract Tower and features STARS LITE radar to accommodate corporate jet traffic, charters, private and home-built aircraft.
The Talbot County Office of Economic Development and Tourism supports networks and resource referrals for business attraction, retention and expansion.
