A more than 7,000-acre business park in Vermillion County is the latest to receive recognition for its high-speed Internet infrastructure. AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) has certified the Vermillion Rise Mega Park as AT&T Fiber Ready.
Dylan Riggin, executive director of the Vermillion County Economic Development Corp., says the certification will help send an important message to entrepreneurs and longtime business owners. "It’s a valuable new tool that gives the community a competitive advantage when talking with potential companies about their needs."
The industrial park is the former home of a U.S. Army facility that served as a chemical weapons depot. Work began in earnest in 2016 to redevelop the property with the construction of a $3.3 million shell building.
"AT&T’s investment is another important partnership and fills in a very important piece of our development framework," said Vermillion Rise Mega Park Executive Director Bob Grewe. "Effective partnerships like this have been the essential ingredient to our redevelopment efforts."
A year ago, Grewe appeared on Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick to talk about the park’s potential. You can see that interview by clicking here.
