An industrial park in Steuben County has secured a key designation from the state. The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs has named Orland Industrial Park as Indiana Site Certified Silver, which the state says indicates the site is ready for economic development.
OCRA says the Indiana Site Certified program aims to illustrate the community’s commitment to economic growth, mitigate risks for businesses considering relocation to Indiana and serve as a marketing tool for the sites themselves. OCRA Executive Director Bill Konyha says Orland’s designation showcases the community’s drive to continue the pursuit of growth.
"The Orland Industrial Park has seen recent growth through new and several expanding businesses." said Kevin Kellett, president of the Orland Town Council. "The Site Certified designation for the available property within the park will help further growth and employment opportunities for the Town of Orland and the residents of our community."
Orland Industrial Park includes 23 acres of space designed to support advanced manufacturing, agriculture, logistics and renewable energy operations. The town recently completed a more than $500,000 road project making it easier for traffic to go through the park.
