A Business Friendly Municpal Government


Greenfield is a business-focused city.

Greenfield is intent on supporting current retail, commercial and industrial businesses and those wishing to locate in the community. With a growing city of over 20,000, we are proud to work with developers and entrepreneurs to promote economic progress from downtown Greenfield to Progress Park and throughout the city.  United with Greenfield Main Street, Inc., we are revitalizing the city’s main corridors and businesses.

Progress Park, Greenfield’s newest commercial park, is located at the entrance to Greenfield on I-70 and provides opportunities for research and development, life sciences, technology, education, and more which are adjacent to Elanco Global Headquarters.  Aggressive support, intense cooperation, focused development, low utility and tax rates, and varied incentives make Greenfield a great place to develop your business.

Together we can make it happen.

Close Proximity To A Major City


A small city in a big neighborhood

Greenfield is a close knit, family oriented city with a historic downtown and a sense of security that comes from neighbors who care about their community and each other.  The city boasts many assets such as the Hancock Regional Hospital, the new Hancock County Public Library, and the state’s second largest street celebration, the Riley Festival. The Courthouse Square District and the Greenfield Residential District are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Combine that with being 10 miles from the 14th largest city in the United States, Indianapolis, and you have the best of all worlds.   Within a thirty minute drive you can find yourself at the Indianapolis 500 race, the Nascar 400 race, Colts Football and Pacer Basketball games, the NCAA Headquarters, the International Airport, the Indianapolis Symphony, and a cosmopolitan nightlife to counterbalance the hometown feel and charming countryside that waits for you in Greenfield.

Existing Industry

Existing Industries in Greenfield

Greenfield’s industry is diverse and is broadly supported by the city and its area workforce.  Some of the companies located in the city include:  life-sciences, research, automotive parts manufacturing, graphic labeling, packaging, metal coatings, custom design and engineering, and industrial fasteners.  These businesses have created a unique bond with the community by not only providing a wide variety of jobs, but also by supporting local activities and projects as excellent corporate citizens and by supporting other local industries.

To meet the growing demands of industry, Greenfield works with Purdue University, Ivy Tech Community College, Vincennes University, and Anderson University to educate those entering the workforce and to provide on-going training for those currently in the field.  These schools help Greenfield’s current industries, and those moving to the city, meet the technological and industrial needs of the 21st century.

Industries have found easy access to local areas and long-distance markets via I-70.  I-69 and I-74 are within 18 miles using State Highway 9.  Such access allows an inflow of raw materials into Greenfield and an outward distribution of finished products across the United States.
