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.
