From Our Will County Business Clients

“The Wayfair team shared with me that the number one reason that they went to this site is labor. The long-term labor prospects for this area were stronger than any other location that they checked out.”

Additional factors include Will County’s lower taxes and Romeoville’s favorable attitude towards industrial development.

“Not only will this new facility mean several hundreds of new, good-paying manufacturing jobs, but it will be the largest plant in the country building all-electric medium and heavy-duty vehicles. This investment capitalizes on the world-class infrastructure, well trained workforce, and nearby expertise in leading-edge green technology in the southwest suburbs.

As a scientist and businessman, I was proud to work with Governor Pritzker to help recruit Lion Electric to Illinois, and I’m proud that effort has led to an investment that will bring meaningful economic benefits to our community.”

Bill Foster

U.S. Representative, (IL-11)

“Lion selected Will County to build the new plant with “a lot of help from the CED.”
