RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. — Florida Gov. Rick Scott visited RGF Environmental Group Inc. during his “Fighting for Florida’s Future” tour. A global manufacturer headquartered in Riviera Beach, Florida, RGF has created more than 50 new jobs over the past four years, currently employs more than 130 Floridians, and is actively seeking new hires to fill 25 new work stations. The company has aggressive plans to expand its business in the U.S. and globally. RGF exports to 33 countries and has received numerous one-on-one trade consultations from Enterprise Florida Inc. (EFI) over the years. The company has also participated in EFI trade missions to China, India, Mexico, South America, South Korea, Taiwan, Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia.
This partnership has allowed RGF to connect with growing business opportunities on a global scale.
“I was proud to recognize RGF for its creation of more than 50 jobs and its success doing business with international markets,” said Scott. “RGF has partnered with Enterprise Florida for many years on trade consultations and international trade missions, and this company is one of the many Florida job creators across the state that receive important support from EFI. We are fighting for the future of our great state, and I urge Floridians and business owners to call their legislators today to tell them to support economic development programs like EFI.”
“RGF was proud to welcome Governor Scott to our facility today,” said Ron Fink, president, founder, and CEO, RGF Environmental Group Inc. “Our mission is to provide the world with the safest air, water, and food, and Florida has proven to be an excellent location for us to work on meeting that important goal. We appreciate Governor Scott’s focus on supporting tax cuts and economic development programs, like Enterprise Florida, that make it easier for Florida businesses, like RGF, to succeed, and we look forward to continuing to grow.”
