Montgomery is home to a diverse base of business. This ranges from industrial, manufacturing, processing, wholesale, and logistics companies. Three industrial parks with two served with BNSF rail access are less than 5 miles from I-88. There are also several large parcels that could accommodate a variety of industries. This could include a mixed use development along with industrial, retail and vacant land along the Fox River. This would also be a great opportunity for entertainment type industries.
Montgomery has been a hidden gem for many years and the word is getting out. The community has plenty of land to develop and the location much less congested than many of the larger cities closer to the city of Chicago. Montgomery is home to some great companies: Aurora Bearing, Aurora Metals, Carl Buddig and company, Caterpillar, Eby-Brown, Home Depot, Performance Foodservice, Superior Beverage, United Facilities (General Mills), VVF L.L.C. (formally called Dial), Yellow Transportation, and over 100 plus additional businesses.
A recent development project completed in 2016, includes a 20 acre facility in the Montgomery Business Center which includes a 26,000 square-foot bulk storage dome which is used for storage and distribution by United Sugars and American Crystal. It is the first of its kind in the United States. The 17,000 square foot transfer facility was completed in 2016. This project has stirred a lot of interest in the Village and additional development has continued throughout the community. In 2020, they announced they will be adding a second dome and expanding operations. Nexeo Solutions and Old Dominion Freight Lines built and opened a brand new facility in 2017. The Village has always focused on quality industries and proper planning for the residents, creating diverse and higher paying jobs in the area. This says a lot for the administration and future of the community.
Another important draw to the area is the variety of skilled and unskilled labor available within a short commute. Several options and organizations can help you find the labor or training you may need. There are 121 colleges within 100 miles of Montgomery and education options include Waubonsee Community College and Aurora University within 2.4 miles of the center of Montgomery. *note MEDC members are designated in blue/bold with their website linked for your convenience.
