Economic Development

On behalf of the City of Murphysboro, we wish to extend to you a warm welcome. We offer you an excellent package of resources, site locations, and skilled labor to suit a variety of manufacturing options. We think you will agree that the Murphysboro Industrial Park, with its on-site utilities and easy highway access, is an excellent location for one or more small and mid-sized manufacturing plants.

Several firms already enjoy the advantages of Murphysboro’s rural setting and productive labor force. We are very proud of our existing industrial community and support them any way we can. We invite you to become a member of this group. The Murphysboro Development Program has developed this industrial development profile to provide you with a detailed preview of the Murphysboro industrial advantage. We also extend an invitation to you to visit the community and examine our industrial park and other sites in person. Our community is very supportive of industrial growth, and we believe that by investing in Murphysboro, your firm will enjoy a healthy and profitable future. Thank you for your interest in Murphysboro.

The Economic Development initiatives are underway as a joint effort between the City of Murphysboro and the Murphysboro Chamber of Commerce. For more information contact our economic development team.
