Located in the heart of north-central Indiana, Cass County combines excellent agricultural resources with a rich history in manufacturing and fast connections to the outside world. The county is within a day’s drive of the majority of U.S. consumers, and close to air cargo service in Chicago, Indianapolis, and Ft. Wayne.
Cass County has a rich agricultural heritage, with extensive, highly productive cropland and a large number of food processing and agribusiness companies. Many of the nation’s top food processors and frozen food producers located here because of our abundant water, electricity, and frozen storage capacity.
The county has earned a reputation for high-quality manufacturing of both industrial and consumer products, and its highly skilled workforce has made the transition to today’s advanced manufacturing challenges. With close proximity to Northwest Indiana’s steel producers, and our easy rail and highway access to manufacturing centers like Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago, Kansas City, and Cincinnati, we’re a natural site for companies that create parts and assemblies for other manufacturers.
Through the Hoosier Heartland Corridor project, Indiana is currently upgrading State Route 25 to a state-of-the-art four-lane limited access highway that will provide faster access to Lafayette, Fort Wayne and connections to Ohio’s Interstate 75 and the port facilities at Toledo. In addition, the county is just a short drive from Interstates 65 and 69, and U.S. Highways 30 and 31, providing a quick link to the Chicago and Indianapolis areas. Cass County is also served by rail mainlines of the Norfolk Southern and RailAmerica, with many opportunities for freight service.
