BEDFORD, Ind. (July 17, 2017) - Radius Indiana traveled to Seattle last week with an Indiana delegation led by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation to meet with site selectors and business advisers.

This was the first trip for the IEDC and Radius Indiana to Seattle in an effort to raise awareness about the Hoosier state. For Radius, the visit adds to a series of economic development trips that it has conducted for 2017, and continues on the successful outreach program the organization began in 2016.

Jeff Quyle, Radius Indiana president and CEO joined Elaine Bedel, IEDC president, along with IEDC staffers, utility representatives, and other Indiana Regional Economic Development Organizations to share the advantages of doing business in the state.

During the two-day visit, Quyle shared information about the Radius region's assets, its logistical advantages, and interstate connectivity as well as developments in the region, particularly the new partnership involving Purdue University and WestGate@Crane Technology Park.

"This trip gave us exposure to the high-tech industry sector that Seattle is known for, which is not as common in our region. I also met with a company that has an interest in possibly expanding in the Radius region," said Quyle. "I applaud IEDC for leading the trip and inviting regional economic development groups to participate. Our partnership with IEDC is invaluable as we work to move the region forward."

Radius Indiana will partner with the IEDC and Local Economic Development Organizations from the region's respective counties for future visits in Indiana and other states across the country. Ensuring that decision makers know about the area's offerings is a primary focus for Radius Indiana, the regional partnership representing Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, and Washington Counties.
