Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville sits on the banks of the Ohio River, just over the border from Indiana. This advantageous location makes Louisville a premier riverport with three major terminals — coal, bulk and railroad — and offers easy access to other major cities, including Lexington, Cincinnati and Indianapolis. Louisville also sits along the I-264 and I-265 beltways and is home to the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport and the CSX and Norfolk Southern freight railways, offering businesses numerous transportation options.
Multiple universities sit within city limits, including the University of Louisville and Bellarmine University, meaning the city boasts a highly educated workforce. Additionally, given the tax-based incentives and financial programs offered by the city’s economic development team, there can be little wonder as to why numerous major corporations — including multiple manufacturing companies — have set up shop in Louisville.
