At first glance, Gibson County looks similar to other Midwestern counterparts – community pride, courthouses on the county square with a pleasant mix of rural and small town.
But take a look closer.
An advanced manufacturing powerhouse, Gibson County is home to Toyota Indiana, the North American producer of the Highlander and Highlander Hybrid SUV, Sienna Mini-van and Sequoia SUV as well as many ancillary suppliers for Toyota (as well as other brands) that support the production of over 375,000 vehicles per year by 5,200 employees.
Nestled in the Southwest corner of Indiana, Gibson County has a population of approximately 34,000 people with 64% comprising its workforce. The rich transportation network of Gibson County consists of the newly opened I-69 which runs north-south connecting Evansville to Indianapolis and a part of the NAFTA Highway connecting Canada with Mexico, as well as I-64 that runs east-west throughout the State of Indiana. Three railroads are located throughout Gibson County: CSX Transportation, Norfolk Southern Railway and Indiana Southern Railroad.
Other nearby assets are the Evansville Regional Airport (EVV) which has direct flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Detroit and Orlando/Sanford; and, the Ports of Indiana-Mt. Vernon, the 7th largest inland port in the U.S.
