Manufacturing: Unparalleled Benefits for Manufacturers

Indiana workers make things. It’s in our blood. In fact, manufacturing is, by far, the largest industry sector in the state due primarily to our Midwestern work ethic. The I-74 Corridor is lined with some of the most sophisticated and demanding manufacturers in the world.

Communities throughout the I-74 corridor have been working hard to create 80 miles of opportunity that provide a straight-line connection between our schools and local manufacturers. Students here receive hands-on training in precision machining, welding, engineering, drafting, computer numerical controlled (CNC) operations and other skills in high-demand at regional training centers including:

IVY Tech’s campuses in Batesville, Lawrenceburg, and Shelbyville are also preparing workers with the skills businesses need with certificate and Associate degree programs in areas such as:

  • Advanced Automation and Robotics Technology
  • Automotive Technology
  • Industrial Technology
  • Computer Science and Informatics

With a workforce of more than three million within a 90-minute drive, manufacturers here have access to a huge workforce ready to meet their needs. Those with specialized training and other labor needs can receive on-site custom training and workforce assessment assistance to help them get up to speed fast.

Several major companies including Honda Manufacturing of Indiana and Hill-Rom – a leading provider of medical technologies – have already discovered the unparalleled benefits that the I-74 Business Corridor has to offer. Isn’t it time you took a closer look?
