Wabash Valley marketing plan takes six-county approach

Six counties in western Indiana have joined together to market themselves through a new effort called “Accelerate West Central Indiana Economic Development.”

It is a cooperative effort of Vigo, Vermillion, Clay, Parke, Putnam and Sullivan counties to market the Wabash Valley with its available industrial and commercial land, buildings and workforce.

That cooperative marketing approach has brought leads such as a drug manufacturer now eyeing the former Pfizer property in Vigo County. Pfizer laid off more than 650 workers from its former Vigo County plant in 2008 after it decided to stop selling Exubera because of slow sales.More details on the new effort, its goals and successes can be found here.
