Existing Business & Industry

In our region we value and support our existing employers. The 6 Fortune 500 companies that have facilities here as well as the variety of home-grown businesses, many of whom are now market leaders (regionally and nationally), are able to enjoy a business environment that encourages and fosters success. The diversity of products and services they provide is perhaps the best testimony to the broad capabilities of the workforce and our locational advantages. This profitability and productivity does not happen by accident. This is why we can confidently recommend Fayette, Lamar and Marion County as a competitive best-choice location for new businesses. Contact us today to get the process moving. Our service to existing companies and those contemplating a new location are provided at no cost or obligation, and confidentiality is always honored.
