Here in Greensburg Decatur County, Indiana, we were raised to believe that employers deserve an honest day’s work from employees. You’ll see that self-motivated attitude in place at local businesses, along with a strong sense of precision and quality.
We draw from a regional labor shed of more than 246,000 people with a proud heritage of manufacturing and agricultural work that goes back several generations. It’s a big part of the reason that Honda Manufacturing of Indiana chose us for their assembly plant — and it’s why companies that supply automakers and other manufacturers locate here. We’re also home to companies in a broad range of other sectors such as food production, logistics, and distribution.
Local residents know that the economy is ever-changing, so they’ve supported a strong educational community that is focused on providing the skills today’s employers need. You’ll see that in the more than 50 dual-credit opportunities at local high schools, and in Project Lead the Way, whose engineering-focused curriculum is offered 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.
