Indiana Perfect Location for Manufacturers

Posted 8:38 PM by

A recent ranking by Site Selection magazine placed Indiana as the second-most competitive state in the U.S. for business based on its annual competitiveness survey

The survey evaluated each state based on the following criteria:

  • Total new and expanded facilities in 2012 (and per 1 million population)
  • Total capital investment in new and expanded facilities in 2012 (and per 1 million in population)
  • Total new jobs created in 2012 (and per 1 million in population)
  • Rank in the corporate real estate executive portion of the 2012 Site Selection Business Climate Ranking
  • State tax climate as ranked by the Tax Foundation
  • Performance in the Beacon Hill Institute's State Competitiveness Index (Business Incubator Index)
  • Number of National Career Readiness Certificates per 1,000 residents aged 18-64, according to ACT — Workforce Development Division, administrator of the ACT Certified Work Ready Communities initiative

What does this mean for manufacturers? Indiana is a great location to set up shop! It provides manufacturers with a low-tax, business-friendly climate with a strong, knowledgeable workforce.
