Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation

Owensboro Is Your Opportunity!

Located along the banks of the Ohio River in northwest Kentucky. The region is a community of human resource dedicated to accomplishing big things. By building an environment of fostering new business creation and growth, success has been seen in research and cutting-edge technologies. The region is a unique place that is made up of skilled people who work with pride and precision and are dedicated to quality of life and work.

The Owensboro MSA (Daviess, Hancock and McLean Counties) is part of the Green River Area Development District and is fortunate to have excellent access to the best riverfront and industrial properties in the state. Our partnerships with surrounding communities, north and south of the Ohio River, have allowed for capitalization on the strengths of our region.

Owensboro is accessible by three Interstates; I-165, I-64, and I-69 Spur. The Owensboro Riverport Authority is the largest and most profitable port in Kentucky and the Owensboro-Daviess County Airport has both an 8,000 and 5,000-foot runway.
