Why the e region


Location matters!

The e Region is home to Indiana’s 3rd largest city (Evansville) and located 60-miles south of the median center of the U.S. population. Our prime location results in lower transportation costs and easy access to almost every U.S. market.


Driving a ball down the fairway requires striking it in the sweet spot. In terms of North American geography, Evansville sits in the “sweet spot” of the map – easily accessible from all directions.
