Workforce

The Remington/Wolcott workforce reflects the true American spirit: hard work and perseverance. In good times and through challenges. The region has a strong background in manufacturing and agriculture. More than 82% of all adults age 25 and older have at least a high school degree. The construction of a new Ivy Tech Community College campus in nearby Monticello provides additional educational opportunities and workforce development as the communities diversify business opportunities.

Nearly 50 percent of the population of White and Jasper counties is between the ages of 24 and 64, meaning the towns offer a vital prospective workforce. The median age in Remington and Wolcott is 35.8 years. The majority of residents in Remington say they choose to live there for job related reasons, either in town or within driving distance.

Current employers include Monsanto, FBI Buildings, Impact Omni, Industrial Pallet, Irving Materials, Solae LLC, Remington Hybrids, Aqua Environmental Container, Indiana Ribbon, Rite Way Concrete Seal, James Engleking Trucking and Dwyer Instruments.

Advanced Auto Parks has built a 525,000 square-foot distribution facility outside of Remington that will employ 350. In White County, Ball Corporation is constructing an aluminum can line production center.
