Welcome to Grant County, Indiana, conveniently located in Indiana’s east central portion of the I-69 Corridor; the midpoint between metro-cities Ft.Wayne and Indianapolis. With two world-class higher education institutions, Taylor University, and Indiana Wesleyan University, plus a well-established community college, Ivy Tech Community College in the area, the county has a lot to boast about.
Grant County houses some of the most successful manufacturing and distribution plants in Indiana and the nation, including a General Motors (GM) metal-stamping plant, a Wal-Mart Distribution Center, and Dollar General Distribution Center. These showcase only a small segment of the success Grant County has achieved. The county is involved with renewable energy, agriculture, distribution, business services and a variety of manufacturing and its proximity to major US highways and state roads makes it accessible from other major cities such as Chicago, Detroit, and Louisville.
With a county population well above 70,000 and a surrounding workforce of over 220,000 Grant County can provide the skilled workforce successful employers must have. Our organization and county have exemplified outstanding cooperation and collaboration with its companies, and we pride ourselves on the unity among our locally elected officials.
No wonder our community successes have been recognized by the National League of Cities, Site Selection magazine, and Fox News. Explore our website or give us a call to learn more.
