Chicago Manufacturing.  For more than 100 years, Chicago has been one of the world’s premier manufacturing and job centers.  From meatpacking and steelmaking to industrial incubators and advanced manufacturers, the industrial sector continues to thrive and provide high-wage jobs that sustain Chicago families.  PPBIC is committed to continuing that legacy and improving the growth of Chicago industrial companies. 

Local Industrial Retention Initiative (LIRI).  We are one of ten LIRI organizations located throughout Chicago with the mission of retaining and attracting industrial businesses.  We work closely with the businesses to identify their needs and help access City programs, services and funding.  We also provide the City with key insights to help plan infrastructure and other investments in the five industrial corridors we serve. 

Not Just Peterson-Pulaski.  Established in 1991 to assist Peterson-Pulaski Industrial Corridor businesses, recently the PPBIC service area expanded to include four more industrial corridors: Elston-Armstrong, Knox, Northwest Highway, and Read-Dunning (Wright Business Park).
