Business Climate

Chamber-FlexWhen we say Elizabethtown is right in the middle of everywhere, we aren’t exaggerating.  We offer convenient transportation routes that put your products within a day’s drive of much of the country and a positive, supportive business climate.  Add to that a lower cost of living compared to many places and an available labor force that’s hard working and relatively inexpensive in comparison to other parts of the country, and you have the ideal location to do business.

And while thousands of jobs disappeared during the recession, our region remained a powerhouse.  In fact, in 2010 the Elizabethtown metropolitan area was the fastest growing area in the nation, with an economy that grew by 14 percent.  That progress has been fueled by the growth at nearby Fort Knox, as well as by manufacturing and retail growth.

Add generous incentives, a strong chamber of commerce and local governments working together to foster success and you’ve got a business climate found few other places, with all the available resources your company will need to prosper. EHCIF works with new and existing industry in the area, helping to make valuable connections between businesses, colleges and universities, workforce development groups, and other community resources to create continued prosperity for our region, and the optimal climate for growing your business in a dynamic and flourishing market.
