We Focus on Three Primary Areas

Workforce and Talent Expansion

Warren County LEDO lends support to established companies by providing information and support relative to workforce training. LEDO also supports local, state, and federal initiatives for expansion of employment and technology enhancement.

New Economic Development Areas have been established near West Lebanon to enable additional development.
