Greater Reading's broad-based economy fosters prosperity.
Greater Reading is building its reputation as a truly great place to live, work and do business. Once known primarily for agriculture and manufacturing, Greater Reading is changing to meet the demands of today's global economy.
Greater Reading has the advantage of a well-qualified labor pool recognized nationally for its superior work ethic. Our diverse workforce with an above average education contributes to the increase in the labor supply. And it's growing!
