Welcome to Our Community


There are many considerations when selecting a location to expand or relocate your business.  Sanford and our surrounding communities offer the right combination of assets, including a strategic location in the heart of Maine’s southern gateway, extraordinary worker productivity and an quality of life that can’t be surpassed.

Sanford is Maine’s sixth-largest community and serves as the core service center for the surrounding towns that in addition to the City of Sanford  comprise a distinctive economic and demographic area, the Sanford Region.

Sanford is  readily accessible to  Portland to the north, Maine’s fabulous  coastline, 20 minutes away to the east, southeastern New Hampshire’s population centers  to the immediate south, and  a bit further south, the greater Boston metropolitan area, just a little over an hour away.

As you will discover on this site York  and adjacent Cumberland  and Stratford (NH) counties  have  an exceptionally well-trained and available workforce to meet your changing business needs.

Our database of available buildings and sites is  comprehensive and utilizes the latest in GIS technology to facilitate the site election process.  The Sanford Region offers  many choice locations ranging from large tracts of industrial and commercially-zoned land, pre-approved lots with infrastructure in-place, established business parks, ample leased office space, an  exciting large-scale downtown mill renewal and a growing retail cluster located precisely in the population center of York County.

Modern infrastructure, modest business costs, market access and a business-friendly community are all good reasons to consider the Sanford Region  as your business location.  The Sanford Regional Economic Growth Council  (SREGC) has a mission to facilitate business expansion while attracting new industries to our community with the ultimate goal of improving the  prosperity of our citizens.  So please explore our website and see why the Sanford Region has so much to offer.
