Lawrence County Chamber Sponsors 2009 Business & Industry Expo

Exhibitors ranging from our local industrial base to retail shops will be featured at the Chamber's Business and Industry Expo next Wednesday, May 6 from 10:00a.m. until the Lawrenceburg Rotary Park.  The Expo is designed to give Lawrence County citizens a chance to see and experience the wide range of services available and products being manufactured in Lawrence County, all in one place, with one visit.

"I think this is a wonderful opportunity for our public to experience what our local economy is all about," said Chad Chancellor, Executive Director, Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.  "I moved here a little over a year ago and frankly did not know what to expect in terms of economic activity in Lawrence County.  What I found totally impressed me!  Take Acu-Cast for example, any community would be proud to have a company as highly technical as Acu-Cast, yet many of our citizens probably know little about them.  Graphic Packaging is as technologically advanced manufacturing facility as I've seen.  Dura and Modine are both hanging in during the worst automotive times ever.  I could go on and on, but the point is this workforce, and this community manufactures some pretty awesome products, and I hope this Expo gives the community a small chance to see, feel, and touch Lawrence County products.  In addition to manufacturing operations, service and retail businesses will be featured as well. The Chamber is about ringing the cash registers of Lawrence County businesses, by supporting our Expo, the public can help us meet our goal of making Lawrence County prosperous."
