A massive pipeline of potential workers is flowing just 35 miles from southern Indiana, and a new program is giving the region direct access to the resource. Southern Indiana is helping lead the charge for "Where Opportunity Knox," an initiative focused on the 130,000 soldiers who filter through Kentucky's Fort Knox each year as they transition out of the U.S. Army. The program aims to match the veterans to potential careers in the area, and southern Indiana leaders believe manufacturing and logistics jobs could be the soldiers' new home base.
Advanced manufacturing drives Indiana's economy. And logistics – managing the flow of goods and services around Indiana, the nation and globe – is key to the continued growth and expansion of Indiana's manufacturing base. Together, the two industries are the heart of the nation's production and distribution hub, the "Crossroads of America."
INdiana Connections is a complimentary monthly publication of the INside Edge e-Newsletter. It is brought to you through a collaboration between Inside INdiana Business and Conexus Indiana.
Each month, INdiana Connections will feature news, opinions and resources from the Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics industries and will provide perspective on the importance and impact these sectors have on our state's future.
