Effingham's location and transportation system has been the calling card for many industrial and commercial companies to locate in our business parks and retail areas.


  • Is a micropolitan center
  • Draws workers from an eight county area
  • Has a trade population of 175,000

Being a regional center, people travel to Effingham to work, shop and for their healthcare needs. The development causes our daytime population to double.

Effingham is a progressive community that has the tools to make every business successful. We invite you and your business to partner with us and enjoy the benefits of a community with a future.
