Why Louisville?

Why Louisville?

Louisville offers a high value proposition, and we help your business succeed in a vibrant city. Louisville is a competitive, authentic, global city, home to UPS WorldPort and a center for advanced manufacturing and logistics, as well as among only a dozen U.S. cities that have all five major performing arts groups. As the hometown of Muhammad Ali, Louisville punches above its weight and its 750,000 population. Since 2014, Louisville has seen more than $10 billion in investments. The word is out...Louisville is the place to be!


Central location
Midwest or South? Both!... With its Midwestern sensibilities and southern hospitality, Louisville is
the regional economic hub and cultural and artistic heart of 24 surrounding counties in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.   Within a day's drive of two-thirds of the U.S. population, it’s also a strategic location for thousands of companies, including UPS Worldport, Clariant Corporation, Ford Motor Company, GE, Yum Brands!, Humana, and Papa John's International.
 

Bourbon is a food group... The city is home to the Kentucky Derby and the world's great bourbons, from Old Forester to Michter's to Evan Williams, all distilled in the Louisville area. Louisville’s reputation as a hub of innovation for food and bourbon (in addition to other spirits) has earned it accolades from far and wide, including Zagat, which named Louisville as a top foodie destination in the world.

Logistics, advanced manufacturing, health care, and more!...Louisville's business strategies focus on areas of strength where large numbers of companies already are successful in Louisville. Ford and GE are experiencing major growth in advanced manufacturing, and the wealth of logistics operations make it easy for them and similar companies to continue to excel. Louisville also is home to the largest concentration of healthcare providers in the lifelong wellness and aging care sector.
