Greater Louisville Featured in National Industry Growth Magazine

In its January edition, ‘Trade and Industry’ included a feature on Greater Louisville’s thriving economy.  ‘Trade and Industry’ is a well-respected national publication known for its influence and coverage of strategic growth in various business sectors. The article covers the rich resources, welcoming community, and a plethora of resources Greater Louisville offers to help businesses grow and prosper. ‘Trade and Industry’ reaches a wide array of industry professionals, decision-makers, site selectors and influencers.

The feature highlights Louisville’s advantageous geographic location and robust infrastructure, including access to rail, road, river, and air transport, especially the presence of UPS Worldport. These features make the region an ideal location for advanced manufacturing and logistics companies looking to cut costs and grow their impact, as shown by the $5.8 billion investment by Ford and BluOval SK in electric vehicle production in Hardin County. The article also mentions how well-suited Louisville is for the medical industry, especially in shipping sensitive medical products and through state-of-the-art technology.

The article goes on to explore initiatives like ‘Live in Lou,’ Greater Louisville Inc.’s nationally-recognized talent attraction initiative. Through quality-of-place marketing, Live in Lou helps attract and retain highly skilled workers in the region to keep up with the accelerated job growth seen in recent years.

The feature is part of a national marketing campaign that was launched earlier this month through a partnership between GLI and Louisville Metro Government. The campaign will run over the next few months and emphasize the region’s competitive advantages in target industries and high-quality lifestyle assets.  To view the January issue of ‘Trade and Industry’, click here.
