Made in Illinois

Illinois has a rich history of American manufacturing. It is the 5th largest state by GDP in the United States today and one of the most diverse state economies we have. Manufacturing has traditionally been the largest industry in Illinois, making up around 14% of the state’s total economic activity. A lot of that manufacturing is centered around farm machinery and auto – since Illinois is very centrally located in our country, it’s an attractive spot for distribution. There are lots of great options for products made in Illinois and we’ve come across quite a few in our research. Below are all our favorite products made in Illinois! We organized them by category and listed the city where each is made right beside them. If you know of any other great Illinois-made companies, give us a shout and we’ll look into them.
