C&I is located in Louisville, in part, because our founders decided they didn’t want to uproot their families when their employer relocated. Who could blame them? This city has more to offer than many major metropolitan areas, but manages to hang onto its small town charm. The best of both worlds, Louisville boasts a dynamic downtown experience, and lovely rural settings just outside the city for those who seek a slower, more comfortable pace. It’s a great place to raise a family, and to have a lot of fun. We are proud to be part of the thriving Houston community as well, having established a presence several years ago. Whether it is the flourishing job market, dynamic food scene, abundant parks, or host to the world’s largest rodeo, Houston has so much to offer. Both Houston and Louisville are wonderful places to be.
We’re in Louisville, Houston and Chicago for a reason.
Life in Louisville
See some of the reasons why we love to live and work here.
A town rich in culture, cuisine and camaraderie
Downtown revitalization has brought new and intriguing restaurants, bars and coffee shops giving this town more flavor than at any time in its history. The arts are vibrant, and music festivals are sprinkled across the calendar all year long. Whatever the event or venue, though, it’s uncanny how, no matter where you go around town, you always seem to run into someone you know.
We love our games.
College basketball holds a special place in the hearts and minds of people in this part of the country. No wonder given the storied hardwood history of its two major universities. In fact, the University of Louisville Cardinals and cross-state rival Kentucky Wildcats annually compete for national championships in many sports. The Bats AAA baseball team has an avid following, as does Louisville City FC, our pro soccer squad.
Of course the biggest event in town is the Kentucky Derby held annually at Churchill Downs. The race is run the first Saturday in May every year. It is the pinnacle of a month of festive events.
Birdies, pars and beautiful parks
The Louisville Metro Parks’ mission is to create a City of Parks where people can play, learn, grow and be healthy. There are some 36 recreational parks in the area to do just that. For those who like to hit the links, Louisville’s public golf courses offer an excellent experience at some of the most affordable prices in the nation. Plus we have Valhalla, which has hosted some of the most prestigious events in golf including the PGA Championship, the The Senior PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup.
Preserving our history
One of Louisville’s favorite sons is Muhammad Ali. This most charismatic legend not only transcended his sport, he transcended all sport and is beloved the world over. The Muhammad Ali Center is a beautiful facility paying tribute to The Greatest of All Time.
The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is here as well. We have yet to hear of any kids – from ages 4 to 104 – who didn’t love the tour they took, or the bat that was made especially for them.
The Kentucky Derby Museum is a favorite stop, as is the Speed Art Museum. At the Frazier Museum, history is alive and vibrant thanks to some extraordinary permanent collections and the ability to attract impressive temporary exhibits.
Finally, the Kentucky Science Center holds a special place in our hearts. Every year, C&I associates engage young people there through the exhibits we create for Engineers Week.
Engineering jobs look a lot better here.
A Big Picture career may await you. There is no better place to settle into a career, and no better employer to help you make the most of it.
