Local Business Resources


The Rockford Region has many local business resources to help manage revenue and cashflow during an expansion, develop new products and services, expand internationally, or increase production scale. All of these resources can help work through these critical decisions with business owners and can be especially beneficial to family-owned or closely held businesses.

There are multiple reasons to investigate if an international expansion is right for your business. Through the use of Foreign Trade Zones (FTZ#176) and Industrial Partnerships the opportunities for international expansion can be a reality.

These local resources in addition to financial institutions can help create strategic solutions for your business.
