Sarasota County approved $365,000 in incentives to land the trio of firms.

Three new businesses will soon be relocating to Sarasota County, bringing with them 147 new jobs. The firms will receive up to $365,000 in performance-based incentive grants, which were recently approved by Sarasota's Board of Commissioners.

The three companies are: Adams Group, a manufacturer relocating from Punta Gorda; Swimwear Boutique, an online swimwear retailer from Blanco, Tex.; and RND Automation & Engineering, a company from Manatee County.

Adams Group will receive up to $300,000 for adding 102 jobs over the next five years. Swimwear Boutique could get up to $50,000 for adding 25 jobs over three years, and RND could receive $15,000 for hiring one or two employees in the next three years.

Adams Group could hire 24 new employees within a year of arriving in Sarasota, according to CEO Ethan Adams.
