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.
