The Eye Opener, the CED’s mid-year briefing on key developments, initiatives, and economic indicators in Will County
The Eye Opener, the CED’s mid-year briefing on key developments, initiatives, and economic indicators in Will County was held virtually with more than 150 participating. The presentation offered insight as to what is ahead for the region-from infrastructure improvements to industries poised for growth.
This year’s Eye Opener also included a featured guest, Nate Baguio, VP of Sales with The Lion Electric Company discussing their company and their new electric bus and medium-duty truck manufacturing facility coming to Joliet. Nick shared some great insight and praised Will County for its labor force, university systems, and position in the country which brought them to choose Will County and Illinois to help lead the national electric vehicle industry sector.
As the CED celebrates its 40th anniversary, there has perhaps never been more momentum to grow and strengthen the region’s economy.
Thank you to all who attended this annual meeting!
