Careers in Rockford

Rockford, Ilinois, the energetic little city
with big city prospects for a career at

Industrial Controls!

Located in far northern Illinois, Rockford is a beautiful little city that straddles the scenic Rock River. Rockford is also known as “The Forest City” because its location is also in the heart of the north woods. The city acts as the county city for Winnebago County and, with a population of approximately 160,000, it is the third-largest city in Illinois, surpassed only by Chicago and Aurora.

In 1949, Life Magazine described Rockford: "It is as nearly typical as any city can be." But it wasn’t really typical. What other city had the Rockford Peaches, the women’s baseball team on which the movie A League of Their Own was based? And how about Tootsietoys, manufacturer of die-cast cars and trucks that brought joy to generations of children. And although not toys themselves, what other city manufactured the red-heeled socks that are used to create sock monkeys? Add to that businesses that now manufacture machine tools, heavy machinery, automotive parts, aerospace components, fastener and cabinet hardware products, packaging devices, and much more, and you have a very busy city.. No, Rockford is anything but typical.

It is said that if you want big-city fun, dining, and accommodations on a small-town budget, you head directly for Rockford. Something similar can be said for Industrial Controls’ Rockford location; if you want a fast-paced, energetic work environment (without having to commute into the congestion of the Windy City every day), you need to give this sales office a look.
