What Bert Has To Say About Janesville-Beloit Metro Area

Janesville and its smaller satellite city of Beloit are located about 15 miles apart in extreme south-central Wisconsin, with Beloit abutting the Illinois border. Both are small industrial towns with a large General Motors plant in Janesville and a variety of businesses, notably food processing and distribution, in Beloit. The GM plant is tied to pickup truck and SUV products. Predictably, the strong auto industry ties give the area a cyclical economy overall.
