Global Location and Expansion Services 

KPMG's Global Location and Expansion Services (GLES) group was created to help companies locate and establish new operations around the world.  From manufacturing to distribution, R&D to shared services, our professionals have experience across all types of operations and sectors.


Our goal is to provide a wide-range of services for our clients that can help result in tax and non-tax savings.  KPMG has one of the largest globally directed, multi-disciplined team of professionals that offer these types of services.  From assistance with site selection and logistic analysis to assistance with incentives and credit enhancement, we provide services to assist in various facets of a relocation, development, or expansion project.  We work with our clients to design an approach to address a highly specific event or problem associated with a facilities project.  Alternatively, we employ our full range of resources to develop a thorough approach throughout the facilities planning and deployment process.  We strive to provide services that do not interfere with day-to-day operations.  Our services are designed around the business structure and direction of our clients.
