Major Employers


Evansville is the retail, medical, entertainment and transportation hub for a tri-state area – serving over 300,000 in southwest Indiana, northwest Kentucky and southeast Illinois.  Just big enough to provide abundant opportunities for prosperity – and just small enough to stand out and make a tangible impact; Evansville is sized for success.


Coming it at #5, Business Review USA named Evansville, Indiana as one of the top 10 places to do business; stating, “Evansville's Midwest location, cost of living, tax climate, and strong working relationships between economic development and government partners are just a few reasons that make Evansville an excellent location for business.”


We have a strong manufacturing heritage and a history of supplying a workforce to meet diverse advanced manufacturing industries including plastics, pharmaceutical and automotive.
