THE PLACE FOR BUSINESS
Opportunity is here. While numerous employers have already experienced the benefits of doing business in Remington / Wolcott, we are only just scratching the surface of our potential as more companies discover what we have to offer.
We are right between two of the largest cities in the United States – Chicago and Indianapolis. Just 90 minutes to both. The well-maintained (and heavily-travelled) I-65 corridor also links Remington / Wolcott to nearby towns and cities like Lafayette and West Lafayette, home to Purdue University. US 24 and 231 connect us to Monticello and Rensselaer.
As development in the Chicagoland area continues to move south along I-65, there is a correlating interest in land development in Jasper and White counties. Approximately 4,000 acres are currently available for development within a half mile of the highway alone.
The towns are accessible from I-65 using Exits 193, 201 and 205 and traffic volume by these interchanges is approximately 34,000/day (if you’ve ever driven on I-65, you’ll know it is a very busy road.)
A SAMPLING OF CURRENT MAJOR EMPLOYERS:
Advance Auto Parts, Monsanto, FBi Buildings & Summit Livestock Facilities, Industrial Pallet, Irving Materials, Inc., DuPont, Remington Seeds, Aqua Environmental Container, Indiana Ribbon, Rite Way Concrete Seal, James Engleking Trucking and Dwyer Instruments.
The Remington / Wolcott workforce reflects the true American spirit: hard work and perseverance. In good times and through challenges. The region has a strong background in manufacturing and agriculture. More than 82% of all adults age 25 and older have at least a high school degree. The construction of a new Ivy Tech Community College campus in nearby Monticello provides additional educational opportunities and workforce development as the communities diversify business opportunities.
Nearly 50 percent of the population of White and Jasper counties is between the ages of 24 and 64, meaning the towns offer a vital prospective workforce. The median age in Remington and Wolcott is 35.8 years. The majority of residents in Remington say they choose to live there for job related reasons, either in town or within driving distance.
Each town works closely with their county’s economic development organizations and are highly motivated to accommodate businesses looking to relocate to or start up in Remington or Wolcott. Contact them to find out what incentives or assistance might be available.
