Cairo, IL

River, rail and interstate are the makers of industry, giving rise to opportunity and American optimism.

Cairo, IL

The goal of the Cairo Economic Development committee is to match Cairo's assets to businesses ready for a proverbial re-fuel. As a committee and as a greater community, the people of Cairo, Illinois, ask you to dig deep into the incentives, infrastructure, available properties and success stories of companies rediscovering Cairo.

The storied river town at the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio feeds into the nation's primary shipping routes with three rail lines and highway/interstate access. Yet this unrivaled commercial potential is comparably untapped, holding a space for the new heroes of innovation and job creation.
