Boone County Bracing for Future, Growth

Frank Sinatra’s hit song “It Was a Very Good Year” comes to mind when considering Boone County’s many successful business ventures in 2007 (with the good news continuing early in 2008). Several major announcements outlined plans for economic growth in the form of new jobs and a 1,700-acre mixed use development community in Whitestown called Anson.

The idea behind Anson: it’s a place where people can “work, shop and play.” Its industrial side will house businesses such as Medco Health Solutions, whose automated prescription distribution center will create approximately 1,300 jobs. Both Duke Realty and Browning Investments are major players in the Anson project.

Other developments? Lebanon became the new U.S. headquarters for a prominent power tool manufacturer. Also, a global publisher is expanding its distribution center in the Lebanon Business Park. Learn more about these developments and others that made 2007 “a very good year” for Boone County in the current issue of BizVoice magazine.
