Whitley County EDC
The Whitley County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) works with regional and state partners to support and encourage our clients’ business development efforts. Whitley County continues to take a progressive approach to economic development, for instance creating and supporting one of the largest Tax Increment Finance (TIF) Districts in the State of Indiana.
Whitley County is located in Northeast Indiana, less than 20 miles from both Fort Wayne, the 2nd largest city in Indiana, and Warsaw, the orthopedics capital of the world. Whitley County companies enjoy access to over 50% of the nation's Customer, Industrial and Transportation Manufacturing bases within 600 miles.
Indiana has the lowest business costs and is considered the best state for business in the Midwest. Recently the state has eliminated the inventory tax and capped property taxes, and the state also has tax credits to encourage job creation, capital investment and R&D activities.
In Whitley County, our client companies find the right location, business climate, workforce, and incentives to grow and succeed.
