"One of Schrader's main reasons for locating to Springfield was the availability of a dedicated workforce to help us grow. The previous employer in our building had over 50% of the workforce employed there for over seven years with many achieving ten to fifteen years. This area is perfectly located, especially for the automotive market. We have found ten customers, including GM, Nissan, Toyota, Mercedes, Hyundai, Honda and BMW, all within a six-hour drive. All of this, coupled with available transportation, suitable sub-suppliers, tool and die shops and the many nearby universities to find talent in make this the climate we want to do business in."

Known as the "Home of the World's Finest Dark-Fired Tobacco" Robertson County is Tennessee's leading tobacco growing county. The county is among the top five counties in the production of wheat, corn, and hay and is ranked among the top ten counties in the production of soybeans and among the top twelve counties in both beef cattle and dairy cattle.
County residents are proud of their agricultural and historical heritage, as well as the natural beauty of this area filled with rural open spaces and dotted by quaint, historic town centers. The newly renovated Robertson County Courthouse is located on the Public Square in Springfield, the city's original downtown commercial district. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the courthouse square is a charming community center bordered by aesthetically pleasing older buildings, most of which were constructed in the 19th century and have been renovated by private owners. The city spearheaded this renovation process with extensive city-funded streetscaping and the extension of the Springfield Greenway through the downtown district.
