River Ridge is well equipped to accommodate the needs of companies in the aerospace industry thanks to extensive acreage, a strategic location, and more. With plenty of room for expansion, close proximity to UPS WorldPort, and easy access by rail, river and road, River Ridge has the infrastructure as well as the tax incentives for aerospace companies to innovate and grow.
One of the major challenges faced by aerospace companies is the availability of precision skill among a potential labor force. Indiana is the home of the top research universities and global giants in the aerospace industry. Aerospace companies will find a promising pool of talented employees from institutions across the state thanks to River Ridge’s convenient location. Indiana University, Purdue University School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and the University of Notre Dame Turbomachinery Lab are all among the nation’s top universities in educating promising candidates in the aerospace field, and many of these graduates make their homes in Southern Indiana.
