Precision Economy

Indiana hasn’t been leading the nation in manufacturing job growth by accident. We have the resources and the will to create long-term solutions for business, and we’re deliberately building a precision economy that is balanced, efficient, and powerful.

It’s the reason we’re the only location in the U.S. with manufacturing plants from Honda, Toyota and Subaru inside a single state. It’s also the reason that after 100-year presence in the United States, Indiana is the largest manufacturing site for Rolls Royce civil aero engines outside the United Kingdom.

We’re bringing together the vision and the know-how to combine one of the world’s most productive steel regions with our geographic positioning near the logistical center of the United States. For over forty years, Indiana has been the top steel producing state in the nation, with more than 20,000 expert steelmakers calling our state home. We’re using this proven combination of skill and productivity to deliver the innovations of the 21st century to a new global marketplace.

How are we doing it? It’s simple. We’ve spent years balancing our budget and eliminating excess red tape to become one of only a handful of U.S. states with a AAA credit rating and a budget surplus that allows for proactive policymaking.

Indiana has a firm commitment to lower taxes. We use a common sense regulatory approach and define a new standard of opportunity for businesses to reach their full potential. But Indiana is much more than just great rankings, low tax rates and a solid balance sheet. We are a state that has deliberately crafted an environment that works for business.

 
 

We actively leverage partnerships with the private sector, and together we’re building a state that works for everyone at the table. We also collaborated with national partners to launch the $2.3 billion Ohio River bridge partnership between Indiana and Kentucky, which was one of the largest transportation projects in the nation. Citizens may now journey across the border using the high-tech “Riverlink” system with no-stop electronic tolling and the added safety that comes with eliminating stops at a busy state border.

Indiana is also about building a bridge between resources, with Indianapolis serving as one of the largest Fed-Ex air hubs in the world, second only to the company’s Memphis headquarters. The award-winning Indianapolis International Airport not only provides an outstanding customer experience, but it is also home to the state’s first non-stop flight to Europe. Weekly flights to Paris begin in 2018 and will transport passengers, businesspeople and cargo between the Midwest and the City of Lights. As our state continues infrastructure expansion, we are committed to adding direct air, highway, rail and waterborne access between resources to deliver one of the best connections between top-tier manufacturers and directly linked delivery networks you’ll find anywhere on the planet. 

The bottom line is we’re building economic strength and momentum, and it’s propelling us on a carefully planned path toward further growth and prosperity. Where do we go from here? You tell us, and we’ll get started laying the groundwork to make it happen. If you’re serious about making the most out of your business, we’re serious about bringing together the people, the resources and the ideas to allow success on your own terms, right here in A State that Works.
