What We Do

The Peterson Pulaski Business & Industrial Council is a non-profit organization that assists in the retention and development of companies in five designated industrial corridors on the Northwest Side of Chicago.

With the support of our members and the City of Chicago’s Local Industrial Retention Initiative (LIRI) program, we provide a variety of services that include facilitating city services, marketing and assisting with public incentives, providing educational and networking opportunities, promoting the area and local business, and planning and advocating for the long-term vitality of the industrial corridors.

This year brings transition and opportunity for PPBIC.  In May we will bid farewell to Alderman Laurino and Alderman Arena.  PPBIC will then proudly introduce PPBIC’s strong alliance of employers to the new 39th Ward alderman, Samantha Nugent, and the 45th Ward’s Jim Gardiner.  To help draw job seekers to our member companies, we are rolling out an employee recruitment campaign.  In addition, we have launched an exclusive discount program with Office Depot and created an opportunity to promote member-to-member discounts.  All the while, PPBIC will continue to help you with every manner of issue, freeing you to concentrate on running and expanding your operation.  We will assist with incentive programs and day-to-day matters to help smooth the way for your success.  Of course, your support and involvement are essential to these efforts.  So please join or renew your membership today by sending the attached application and your fee by mail, or renew online HERE.
