The Center is located in Springfield, KY, which maintains superb fundamentals with excellent economic growth fuelled by the county’s effort to bringing manufacturing jobs into the city. Springfield is a town of about 3000 people, and has 1,100 manufacturing jobs. Very few counties, if any, of comparable size in Kentucky can say that. Seven of the largest employers in Washington County are located in Springfield and include Toyotomi America, Springfield Products, Alltech, Barber Cabinet, and Bluegrass Dairy. While a heavy reliance on a single industry can create a “boom or bust” economy, Washington County had been able to maintain positive job growth and unemployment rates near state averages.
Overall, due to Washington County’s reliance on its manufacturing base the overall market area is considered stable. Hal Goode, SWEDA’s (Springfield Washington county Economic development agency) executive director, said the agency has three main tasks: recruit new industry, retain existing industry, and provide workforce development. In the past 10 years, he said, the community’s industrial base has diversified. That’s an effort that will continue. We’re trying to bring in high-skilled jobs, technical jobs,” he said. “In the next 10 years, we’ll continue the emphasis on automotive suppliers, but also diversify into wood products, biotechnology, and plastic injection molding. Springfield is also the home to St. Catherine College which was founded in 1931 and has a student population of approximately 950 and offers associate and baccalaureate, and master’s degree programs through the School of Graduate Studies, School of Arts & Sciences, Health and Human Sciences.
