Regional Cities Investment Impacts Argos Economic Development

 
Business attraction, job creation, and population growth are the expected outcomes of a new, estimated $2.77 million project in Argos, Indiana. After many years of planning, the Town of Argos and the MCEDC celebrated the substantial completion of the Argos Manufacturing Center with a ribbon cutting was on June 6th. The Argos Manufacturing Center will be 50,000 square feet, expandable to up to 300,000 square feet. The project funding through Regional Cities Initiative is $400,000 due to its ability to improve quality of place by attracting new industry and talent to the community.
 
This project represents years of work on behalf of the Town of Argos and MCEDC to spur industrial development. The town believes that the Argos Manufacturing Center will spark the first of many developments in this industrial park. The building is well positioned to attract another new business to the community.
 
Important project partners including the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), Regional Development Authority (RDA), Lake City Bank, NIPSCO, IMPA, Norfolk Southern, Marshall County Commissioners, Marshall County Council, MCEDC, and the Town of Argos have worked together to bring this innovative economic development project to life.
