Beloit businesses can benefit from Greater Beloit’s strategic location. Our geographical location on the Illinois-Wisconsin border, midway between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River, puts us in the center of the U.S.A.’s biggest market-the Midwest. Speedy access to these markets is provided by the area’s diversified transportation systems. Interstate Highways 39, 90, and 43 link the area with other Wisconsin and Illinois communities, as well as the rest of the nation.
We are in close proximity to 2 major cities; Chicago and Milwaukee, both within a 2 hour drive. Greater Beloit can offer ease of access to markets and suppliers for Beloit businesses. This is a highly significant factor in terms of freight costs and the increased emphasis on “Just-In-Time” production. With its strategic location and access to markets, Greater Beloit continually plays a big role in Wisconsin public economic development. In short, Greater Beloit can offer Beloit businesses the right location to expand or establish a business.

“Reopen Guidelines for Businesses”
May 8, 2020 – WEDC – Wisconsin businesses look forward to a future when they can return to providing the products and services their customers need and crave, unencumbered by threats to the health of their employees and those they serve. Working toward that future will require the gradual adoption of new business practices that reflect the evolving reality of the COVID-19 pandemic and our success in mitigating the effects of this unprecedented global health emergency.
With input from national and state health and industry experts and in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and our regional economic development partners, WEDC has compiled a series of industry-specific documents to help you get back to business while taking the necessary precautions to maximize safety. Following these guidelines will help us all get Wisconsin’s economy back on track.
