ROCKFORD, Aug. 7 — The Rockford Area Economic Development Council has released the July President’s Newsletter to share important numbers/trends, regional project updates, RAEDC news and positive headlines you might have missed.
Crain’s Chicago Business recognized the Rockford Region’s momentum in a July 11 story about our “aerospace manufacturing attractiveness.”
Another way the aerospace cluster generates business and relationships is by participating in international air shows. Midwest Aero Support, which has attended the last two Paris Air Shows, can tie at least $2.5 million in sales through 2017 and 3 new jobs to doors opened there.
July also saw the announcement of an expected 150 jobs in the next year added at ConAgra Foods in South Beloit.
Please see the July President’s Newsletter here for those stories and more.
