What Bert Has To Say About Rockford Metro Area

Despite its location in a largely agricultural region, Rockford has a strong heritage as an industrial center. The diverse manufacturing base has partially transitioned away from its Rust Belt beginnings, and today’s local industries include aviation, aerospace, precision tools, and medicine along with the mainstays of agriculture and agricultural machinery. The industrial transformation is being augmented by its not-too-distant location relative to suburban Chicago and the new commuter rail service recently started.
