Industrial & Economic Development


Welcome to The Greater Millville Chamber of Commerce  

There are a variety of programs and initiatives designed to assist businesses in the area with development and expansion of facilities as with development and training of workforce's.

A choice selection of new sites for business may be found at several industrial parks located within Millville.

Millville is part of an Urban Enterprise Zone, in which businesses are exempted from state sales tax on certain products and services, construction costs, furniture and equipment. In addition, retail customers pay one-half the normal sales tax. New construction qualifies for a 5-year tax abatement. Employment tax credits, employee training assistance and other financial assistance is also available.

The Millville Airport is part of the Cumberland Empowerment Zone, and projects developed on that spacious site may qualify for a variety of grants, loans and special tax incentives that are available under the federal program. A new 360-acre state-of-the-art industrial park will also be developed on land adjacent to the airport.

Foreign Trade Zone status is also afforded qualified businesses operating at the Millville Airport site. Operations in the zone enjoy flexible and favorable treatment, insofar as customs and duties are concerned. Material may be imported duty-free, processed and made ready for shipment to the customer before duty is paid.

The City of Millville can coordinate arrangements for a variety of local, regional and state financing sources available for development in the area. The city also assigns staff teams to coordinate the development process, in order to minimize delays in getting engineering, planning and zoning approvals. In addition, the Millville Development Corporation makes funding available at reduced interest rates for projects in the downtown business district. The Cumberland County Economic Development Office also administers loan programs for qualifying existing and new businesses.

Job training is available for businesses and workers from several local institutions. Academic, continuing education and special employee training courses are available at the Cumberland County College. The College now offers both Associate and Bachelor's Degree programs. It special training courses are tailored to meet specific employment requirements of the client businesses.
