BEDFORD, Ind. (Sept. 7, 2018) — Radius Indiana traveled to Cleveland last week to meet with site selectors and share the advantages of doing business in the Radius region. This was Radius’s third site selector trip to Cleveland, and the organization is continuing its outreach program efforts that began in 2016.
Radius Indiana President and CEO Jeff Quyle met with six site selectors during the trip. Agribusiness in the region was one of the topics of interest for the site selectors, Quyle was able to highlight the existing businesses and opportunities along the supply chain in the area.
Radius Indiana’s agricultural sector is a state leader in poultry production and grain processing. With abundant farmland and sites for commercial development the region has a well-established agriculture infrastructure that enables companies to set up operations and get products to market quickly.
“The Radius message was more fun to deliver than usual this summer because of the many positive project announcements and events we’ve had take place in recent weeks,” said Quyle. “From Eagle Rail in Washington to Lehigh in Mitchell to SIMCO in Crawford County, or the Parklands of Jasper, there are visible signs of the pro-active spirit of the region.”
Radius Indiana will continue its outreach program efforts with more site selector trips to finish 2018 and into 2019. The organizations first international trip to Japan will take place this October, and is an opportunity to bring foreign direct investment to the Radius region.
“We continue to see a positive impact on our region through site selector trips,” said Quyle. “Being able to highlight different industry sectors that are important to our counties is something that Radius will continue to do as well as continuing to spread education about what we have to offer.”
