Avon, Indiana is an ideal location for companies in the distribution and logistics industry. We’re at the very center of our region’s fast-growing logistics hub, with a network of Interstate and Interstate-grade highways that puts us within a day’s drive of more than 145 million hungry consumers — nearly half of the total population of the lower 48 states — and less than a one-hour drive for more than 1.2 million skilled and educated workers.
U.S. 36 and Interstate-grade Ronald Reagan Parkway provide fast connections to Interstates 465, 65, 70, 69, and 74, and other highways, offering fast routes to the entire United States, and putting major markets such as Chicago, Cincinnati, Detroit, Nashville, St. Louis, and Atlanta within an easy day’s drive.
Does your business use air cargo? The extensive global services at Indianapolis International Airport, which include the world’s second-largest FedEx hub, is just a few minutes down Ronald Reagan Parkway — and the UPS Louisville hub is just about two hours away.
Our established utility providers have plenty of capacity to accommodate future growth, along with some of the lowest utility rates you’ll find anywhere for electricity, natural gas, water, wastewater, and redundant broadband services.
Finally, our local workforce is no strangers to hard work and a job well done — and we’re keeping the workforce pipeline full through extensive employer-focused education and training programs in fields such as robotics, engineering, CNC machining, welding, and logistics. Some of the leadership for those efforts comes from the engineering and technology innovators at Purdue University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, both of which are about an hour from Avon. And of course, Indiana has long been a right-to-work state.
