Global growth deep-rooted and flourishing.

The “Steel Building Capital of the South,” Cook County offers the “strength of steel” across a variety of sectors. The county’s industrial base is as broad as the experience of our workforce is deep. (Cook County has one the highest percentages of manufacturing workers in the state.) Home to the high-performing facilities of nearly a dozen global companies and nearly two dozen regional companies, Cook County is producing quality products across the board. Consider these examples:

 

JM Eagle:
When JM Eagle, global manufacturer of PVC piping, decided to offer a revolutionary new 50-year warranty on its products, company management knew it was a bold move. But it was a move JM Eagle could make with confidence, given the quality of its manufacturing at locations like its Cook County facility, the largest PVC plant in the nation.

 

Sanderson Farms:
When Sanderson Farms, Inc., the nation’s fourth largest poultry processing company, decided to expand its operations to Georgia, the company looked to Cook County where aggressive local leadership in collaboration with state economic development officials found the perfect plant location and formulated the winning incentives for a feed mill and hatchery. A decade later, the facility continues to thrive as a key component in SFI’s vertically integrated operation.

 

BASF:
Three decades ago, BASF, the world’s leading chemical company, choose Cook County as a manufacturing location, and today BASF-Sparks is comprised of four manufacturing plants producing granular and liquid fungicides and insecticides for the agricultural industry.

Rooted in a generation of achievement and continually reaching higher standards productivity and profitability, Cook County industry enjoys a commanding lead in today’s global marketplace and remains ready for tomorrow’s challenges.
