Monroe County’s proximity to large markets combined with the area’s breathtaking natural environment position the county as a great place to do business. As a unique four-season resort destination located in the Pocono Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania and bi-sected by Interstate 80, businesses have easy access to the interstate highway system easily reaching their customers.
Today, a large part of our industry base remains recreation and tourism, but manufacturing, logistics, electronics, and pharmaceuticals also have a significant presence. The county’s largest public employer is Tobyhanna Army Depot with almost 4,000 employees and known for serving the military with their excellence in electronics. Sanofi Pasteur, a worldwide leader in vaccine production, is the county’s largest private employer of 2,400. Healthcare is growing rapidly as well, with several recent expansions of Pocono Medical Center and the construction of a new St. Luke’s Hospital. Logistics and transportation are also large employers with a 1.25 million square foot Walmart Distribution Center and a 1.4 million square foot J&J Sales & Logistics center. Retail trade is also a strong economic driver in the area.
