The purpose of MCEDC is to expand and diversify the economy of Marshall County and its communities by fostering investment in new and existing facilities and creating entrepreneurial capacity ensuring the economic growth of Marshall County, Indiana.

In furtherance of such purposes, MCEDC is providing administrative and consulting services to the political subdivisions of Marshall County to improve business conditions and promote economic growth and development in the community. MCEDC’s board, advisory committee and staff are engaged in various aspects of economic development, including business recruitment, business retention, and job creation.
