Who We Are

The Southeast Volusia Manufacturing & Technology Coalition (SEVMTC) is a non-profit organization that partners with the cities of Edgewater, New Smyrna Beach, and Oak Hill, as well as other public and private sector stakeholders to promote strategic economic development within the Southeast Volusia region. This all started in 2016 when the three cities passed resolutions to come together as one economic region. This has resulted in higher-paying jobs, increased per capita income, and a better quality of life for our residents. Together, we have come a long way with:

  • Improved Private & Public Sector partnerships
  • Leveraged Advertising Dollars
  • Enhanced Workforce Development & Incumbent Training
  • Elevated Community Involvement & Betterment
