As a leading processor, marketer and distributor of shelled and in-shell nuts and snacks, John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc.(JBSS), owner of the  Fisher Nuts® brand, made the decision several years ago to consolidate our corporate headquarters and Chicago area manufacturing facilities into one location.  Elgin has proven to be a great choice for JBSS.  Our 1.1-million-square foot Elgin facility serves us well, with visibility along major roads and close proximity to the highway.   The new location is perfect for the long term needs of our company. The low tax base and access to a large employment pool are great incentives for any company looking to locate close to a major U.S. city. - Jeffrey Sanfilippo, Chief Executive Officer, John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc

"What impresses me most about Elgin is its location, its people, and its spirit.  It has history, culture, and a dedication to old world charm through its varied ethnic groups.  Through the leadership of its city government, educational system, and quantifiable workforce Elgin has all that is needed to meet the needs of growth companies."

Patrick Hayes, Chairman and Founder, Fabric Images

“Access to transportation was key, so being in the Chicago area with access to highways……airport for customers and visitors in and out. Elgin has a pretty strong manufacturing base that has developed over the years so it made sense to grow with this community.”
