BEDFORD, Ind. (Sept. 5, 2017) - Radius Indiana traveled to St. Louis last week along with representatives from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) and the Daviess County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC) to meet with site selectors.

The visit marks Radius Indiana's first trip to St. Louis in an effort to raise awareness about economic opportunities in the eight-county region. For Radius, the visit adds to a series of economic development trips that it has conducted for 2017, and continues on the successful outreach program the organization began in 2016.

Jeff Quyle, Radius Indiana president and CEO, Susan Vaughn, director of the Southwest Regional Office of IEDC and Ron Arnold, executive director of DCEDC shared the advantages of doing business in the region and the state.

During the visit, Quyle highlighted the Radius region's assets, its logistical advantages, interstate connectivity, its proximity to the Louisville metropolitan area as well as developments in the region.

"St. Louis is a relatively close and familiar market for southern Indiana, but our meetings showed us that there is always a benefit to creating a connection for the region," said Quyle. "One of the site selectors we met with is actually exploring the Louisville market for a current project, and we were able to expand his knowledge about our Radius counties that can effectively service that particular market."

"The State of Indiana and in particular the Radius Region has so much to offer including a work ethic of its citizens it is important we take every opportunity to tell our story", stated Ron Arnold

Radius Indiana will continue to partner with the IEDC and Local Economic Development Organizations from the region's respective counties for the remainder of this year's outreach efforts in Indiana and other states across the country. Ensuring that decision makers know about the area's offerings is a primary focus for Radius Indiana, the regional partnership representing Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, and Washington Counties.
