Our guest speaker was Nathan Bryant, nephew of Bob Rehfeldt, which was fitting as he was on hand to help us wish Bob a happy wedding anniversary (his 60th). Nathan is with the Rockford Area Economic Development Council. They work hard to get the word out that Rockford is a great place for businesses to locate. There are over 90 companies in Rockford tied to the Aerospace industry. Illinois has the third largest interstate highway system in the U.S. and is the only state that is home to all seven top class railroads. Rockford is number one in workplace development, competing with cities four to five times larger. They have built to suit almost two million square feet, which is three times the Chicago suburbs. Thank you for visiting Nathan.
