The Lehigh Valley is the fastest-growing region in Pennsylvania, and has been ranked the top region for economic development in the Northeast. And it’s easy to see why if you look at Lehigh County, whose economic growth and success has set the bar for all other counties in the state. Lehigh County has seen the unprecedented revitalization of Allentown, the county seat and third-largest city in Pennsylvania. It is the home of three Fortune 500 companies and two nationally-renowned sports venues: Coca-Cola Park, and the recently completed PPL Center hockey arena. With a strong infrastructure and excellent access to markets, Lehigh County has seen the continued growth in its manufacturing economy, with companies like Mack Trucks, Westport Axle, Lutron, and Olympus calling it home. The county’s high-quality water and sewer resources have also made it a mecca for food and beverage manufacturers, with such iconic brands as Mack Trucks, Samuel Adams, Ocean Spray, Olympus, and Coca-Cola. Unemployment in Lehigh County is at its lowest rate in seven years. Home sales are up, the construction market is active, and Lehigh County has the third-highest credit rating among all 67 counties in Pennsylvania. Come to Lehigh County and be a part of this remarkable success story.
