This page provides specific information about business opportunities in Essex Junction. As the host community for IBM Microelectronics, Vermont’s largest private employer, our government has a proven track record of developing business partnerships that last.
Whether your enterprise is large or small, service oriented, retail, or manufacturing, Essex Junction has a blend of assets few other communities can match:
- We are a transportation hub, with close access to Interstate 89 and interstate routes 15, 2A, and 117, and Burlington International Airport. Our downtown transportation terminal is a major stop for Amtrak and for the Chittenden County Transportation Authority: which provides county-wide public transportation.
- We offer a mix of old and new, large and small business properties. Our historic Vermont village downtown is in the midst of a multimillion dollar, federally funded restoration and redevelopment project.
- In addition to IBM Microelectronics, we are home to the Center for Technology, Essex, which is Vermont's largest secondary technical education facility and the Champlain Valley Exposition, Vermont’s largest indoor and outdoor exposition center.
- Our 9000 Village residents live in comfortable, friendly neighborhoods all within walking distance of the Village downtown. Our schools are consistently ranked among the best in the state. In addition to IBM, many Essex Junction residents are employed by Fletcher Allen Health Care, the University of Vermont, Saint Michaels College, General Electric, and the State of Vermont.
