Major Employers

Let’s meet the area’s major employers. You may already know some of them.

Southern Indiana and the City of Louisville have a wide range of employers, including nationally-known companies that maintain headquarters or significant local presence in the region.

Products vary from barge construction to heavy truck assembly, from large home appliances to kitchen cabinets and from electronic components to specialty chemical catalysts. As a result of this convergence of diverse manufacturing, the region is also home to many medium and smaller supply and service companies.

Southern Indiana has several major “home grown” employers, such as Beach Mold & Tool, Discount Labels, FireKing International, Koetter Woodworking, and SAMTEC, Inc. These businesses are joined by national and internationally-known companies such as Amazon, Asus, Fuji Seal, Autoneum, and Hitachi Cable Indiana, Inc.
