This is because Evansville is not directly served by a north-south or east-west interstate.  However, all is not lost in regard to the city’s economic growth.

Rigorous strategic planning by its government in conjunction with efforts by The Kentucky Cabinet for Economic development persistently explore ways to create new jobs and lure investors into the city. Some top employers in this city include Gibbs Die Casting Corp, Audubon Metals LLC, Brenntag Mid-South Inc, Dana Corporation and Azteca Milling LP.
