Doing Business In Bristol

Economic Development

The Bristol Development Authority (BDA) fosters an environment that is supportive of economic development and growth. The BDA manages a number of economic development incentive programs to encourage the retention, expansion, relocation, or creation of new businesses within the City. These incentive programs include grants, tax abatements, and more. The BDA serves as the lead municipal agency for retail, industrial/distribution, and downtown development, including coordinating the exciting Centre Square downtown development project and the Southeast Bristol Business Park.

“We are an aerospace manufacturer that built our headquarters in Bristol with the assistance of local incentive programs. The City has been very supportive throughout our relocation, and I am confident we will continue to grow in Bristol.”
 – 
Gary Quirion,  President of GMN USA

I developed my business in Bristol, and when it was time to hire more employees and move to a larger facility, the City’s business friendly attitude and incentives made my decision to stay in Bristol and easy one.”
 – 
Debbie Lombardi, Barter Business Unlimited.

“We chose to develop PODS’ Connecticut headquarters in Bristol because of the City’s optimal location between Boston and New York and supportive business environment. We develop projects throughout the country, and Bristol’s progressive attitude toward development has been a welcome change.”
