Hancock County is where manufacturers produce successes.


Hancock County, Indiana and Central Indiana share a proud tradition of high-quality manufacturing and constant adaptations to changing technology needs, and we have a workforce with the skills and grit today’s manufacturers need for success.

That’s why leading companies such as Indiana Auto Fasteners, Keihin North America, and Tsuda have located production facilities here. Local leaders Bastian Solutions and Genesis Products are leveraging innovation to meet marketplace needs, and Ivy Tech Community College is preparing workers with courses in automation and robotics, advanced manufacturing, manufacturing operations, and welding.

Manufacturers of precision products for the automotive, aerospace, and medical products industries will find the resources they need to prosper here. In addition to being at the center of more than 1.3 million workers within an hour’s drive, Hancock County has a utility infrastructure that robust enough to stand up to the most demanding processes, with plenty of excess water and wastewater capacity, affordable electricity and gas, and a fiber network delivering up to 100 gigabits of service. We’re ready to accommodate your company’s needs.

“The Hancock Economic Development Council has provided advice, direction and key introductions that have facilitated Photon’s growth in Hancock County. We have never had to wait for an answer from the HEDC office. Connie Schmidt has been very responsive and proactive. Skip Kuker went out of his way to make sure that we had all our questions answered and guided us in preparation for a recently granted tax abatement. Skip’s successor, Randy Sorrell has also been very proactive and has offered to help us in any way that he can.”
