Image of building under constructionThe Indiana County Development Corporation (ICDC) is a private, non-profit, industrial development corporation that promotes an environment supporting the creation and retention of quality jobs in Indiana County. The ICDC develops and maintains an inventory of quality business park sites and multi-tenant buildings throughout the County. They operate through a self-appointing board of thirteen directors who represent both goods-producing and service-producing businesses in Indiana County.

Originally incorporated in the 1960s, the ICDC primarily served as an access point for State financing through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA) until the mid-1990s. The construction of a 100-acre development at the intersection of US Route 22 and US Route 119 in 1998 (the Corporate Campus business park), marked the beginning of the ICDC’s role as a key player in the economic development of Indiana County.

Now, the ICDC is in process for designation as the state-recognized Industrial Development Corporation for Indiana County.

Commercial and Industrial Sites

The ICDC currently owns and operates five multi-tenant buildings and one single-tenant industrial building, totaling about 300,000 square feet of space and hosting an employment base of over 300 area residents. In total, business properties developed by the ICDC serve as home to some twenty businesses, with over 700 employees and about 1,500 vocational students.Image of Industrial and commercial pad sites

A commitment to collaboratively working with clients undergirds the ICDC’s successful operating philosophy. They advance innovative solutions that enable their clients to accomplish their expansion goals. With their existing complement of land and buildings nearing capacity, the ICDC currently has two additional business parks ready for construction. These parks will add approximately 160 acres of additional business pads to their inventory of developable properties.

The ICDC, Economic Development, and Industry Conditions in Southwest PA

The ICDC is recognized as a Southwest Region PREP PartnerPREP, or the Partnerships for Regional Economic Performance Program, promotes coordination of regional economic development efforts and is designed to “help deliver superior customer service to the business community,” according to the Department of Community and Economic Development.

Southwestern Pennsylvania has fared better than many regions throughout the country and the nation as a whole. Led by historic stalwarts, such as manufacturing, and along with more recent drivers, such as healthcare and education, the region has above-average employment and regional GDP statistics.

When ranking the top five regional industry sectors by employment and regional GDP, only one sector, health care and social assistance, shows up on all three lists. Manufacturing is among the top five sectors in employment and the number one sector in terms of GDP. Educational and Health Services is among the top five in employment. The fastest growing industry sector in the region in both employment and contribution to the region’s GDP is mining, led by the subsector associated with Marcellus Shale gas exploration and extraction.
