What sets Oregon apart from many small communities is the presence of several major industries and agencies with professional and highly skilled positions. Legal, accounting, and investment services have a strong presence in town as well as many social service and governmental offices. County government and the Oregon School District have a large number of professional employees, while nursing and health care facilities also have a notable presence. There are also several large construction and contracting firms within a few miles of town.
Not as well known is that Oregon is also the home of several international manufacturing industries. Three of the largest are home-grown companies which together employ over 800 individuals; almost unheard of in a town the size of Oregon. These businesses have weathered both good times and bad, and continually improve themselves through investment and training in cutting edge technology and quality customer service. In addition, the Exelon Nuclear Generating station, only seven miles from town, employs over 850 highly skilled and professional individuals.
Motivated individuals with the right skill set and a hard-working attitude have a great chance of becoming a part of our local workforce. Plus, employers looking to grow or expand will find Oregon to be a great place to invest.
