Keeping the auto industry and other manufacturers in production

Located at the center of the long line of automotive plants that stretches from southern Tennessee to central Michigan, Greensburg Decatur County, Indiana and its residents have long played important roles in manufacturing components for cars, trucks, and many other products. With regular rail service and excellent Interstate highway connections to the Interstates serving Indianapolis, Indiana and Cincinnati, Ohio, we put local companies within a day’s drive of dozens of major automotive and other manufacturing plants. That means fast and reliable transport for both raw materials and finished goods.

When you combine those location advantages with a huge labor shed of workers who already have the skills needed by today’s advanced manufacturers, and redundant sources for electric power, you’ll see why Honda Manufacturing of Indiana chose our area for its 2,300 employee assembly plant.

Our local education community understands the importance of providing the skills today and tomorrow’s employers need. Local high schools offer more than 50 dual-credit opportunities, with Project Lead the Way’s engineering-focused curriculum available at local junior and senior high schools. This year, Greensburg Community High School opens a 10,000-square-foot Vocational Education Manufacturing Lab to teach skills in CNC machining, welding, and CAD-based engineering and design.
