RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. - Today, Governor Rick Scott visited RGF Environmental Group, a global manufacturer headquartered in Riviera Beach, during his “Fighting for Florida’s Future” tour. RGF has created more than 50 new jobs over the past four years and currently employs nearly 130 Floridians, with plans to expand the near future. The company exports to 33 countries and has received numerous one-on-one trade consultations from Enterprise Florida over the years. RGF has also participated in EFI trade missions to China, India, Mexico, South America, South Korea, Taiwan, Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia. EFI is the only international trade and development program in Florida, and this partnership has allowed RGF to connect with growing business opportunities on a global scale.

 

Governor Scott said, “I was proud to recognize RGF today for their creation of more than 50 jobs and their success doing business with international markets. 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 manufactures and produces air, food and water purification and sanitation systems for homes, schools, office buildings, hotels, cruise ships, food processors, hospitals and industrial water treatment systems. RGF has also saved more than $65,000 in taxes since the permanent elimination of the sales tax on manufacturing machinery and equipment that Governor Scott championed. These savings have instead been used by RGF to hire and train new employees.

Ron Fink, President, Founder and CEO of RGF Environmental Group, said, “RGF was proud to welcome Governor Scott to our facility today. 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.”
