Conveniently located just south of Lafayette and northwest of Indianapolis, Montgomery County epitomizes the blend of value-added agriculture and advanced manufacturing that you’ll find throughout Indiana’s Technology Corridor.
Montgomery County is bisected by Interstate 74, which connects Indianapolis and Danville, Illinois, and by U.S. 231, which offers quick access to Lafayette and Interstates 65 and 70. The county also receives extensive rail service from CSX Transportation, and draws upon the resources of nearby Purdue University, Ivy Tech Community College, and well-know Wabash College.
Montgomery County has long been recognized as an excellent location for manufacturing, with a motivated, quality-focused workforce. As American industry has moved to advanced manufacturing technologies, local workers have acquired the skills needed to remain competitive. Among the largest employers in the county are a Nucor Steel mini-mill and one of R.R. Donnelly’s largest printing facilities.
Despite its solid reputation for manufacturing, Montgomery County retains a pastoral feeling, with thousands of acres of highly productive corn and soybean fields, along with substantial hog and cattle operations. With that strong agricultural heritage and excellent transportation access, the county is a natural location for food-related industries.
