Clark County, Ind.: New business, thriving culture

The River Ridge Commerce Center along the Ohio River in Jeffersonville is getting a new tenant this summer, DENSO Products and Services Americas (DPAM), which is part of DENSO Corp., an automotive supplier with global headquarters in Japan and North American headquarters in Southfield, Mich. DPAM is investing $9.5 million for the distribution facility in Clark County.

Jeffersonville’s arts and cultural district started 2019 with a new name, NoCo, due to its location north of Court Avenue. NoCo is a 22-acre area of colorful creativity and artistic expression for the entire community. For outdoor enthusiasts, Clarksville is officially on the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, thanks to the trail’s 1,200-mile extension, completed in March, as part of the John D. Dingell Jr. Conservation Management and Recreation Act.
