Full steam ahead

As Manatee County Administrator Ed Hunzeker outlined the county’s 2013 highlights, he made it clear the year was a big one. And never mind that the best days of Port Manatee, an economic catalyst in waiting, are likely just over the horizon.

Then in January it was announced that robotics equipment manufacturer RND Automation & Engineering is doubling its footprint with a planned relocation to south Manatee County.

Yet, with substantial success racked up, Hunzeker and his team continue to move forward. County commissioners approved a new county logo that will be incorporated on county assets and government-related publications beginning March 1. The new logo is the latest in a rebranding project.
