Angola, Indiana, March 4, 2019:  Angola ranks tied for 10th on the Top 100 Micropolitans list from Site Selection Magazine for the seventh year in a row, making this list twelve out of the last thirteen years.

In 2018, Steuben County had seven projects that qualified to make this list based in Angola, IN. Site Selection’s Conway Projects Database focuses on new corporate facility projects with significant impact, including headquarters, manufacturing plants, R&D operations and logistics sites, among others. It does not track retail and government projects, or schools and hospitals. New facilities and expansions included in the analyses must meet at least one of three criteria: (a) involve a capital investment of at least US$1 million, (b) create at least 20 new jobs or (c) add at least 20,000 sq. ft. (1,858 sq. m.) of new floor area.

“The City of Angola, Steuben County, and the Steuben County Economic Development Corporation are truly excited about being listed again on the Top Micropolitan list for 2018. Ranking tied for 10th for the second time in two years, is the highest our community has ranked. Ranking on this list is an honor. This is a testament to the many organizations and individuals that partner to achieve this award. Furthermore, to be listed with other Northeast Indiana communities just goes to show that we have a lot to offer here in the region.” Isaac Lee, Executive Director, Steuben County EDC.
