Did you know that Franklin Park ranks 4th among Illinois suburbs in the number of industries? Franklin Park has many industries with several having corporate headquarters in our town. According to the Illinois Manufacturers Directory and Illinois Services Directory, there are a number whose estimated total sales range from 25-49.9 million dollars -- and even some whose estimated total sales range from 50-99.9 million dollars -- and still others whose estimated sales range from 100-499.9 million dollars.

We have selected some of the industries in Franklin Park, including photographs and information both on companies still in existence and on some who no longer serve the community.


The O'Hare Raceway was actually located in Schiller Park, at 4200 Mannheim. Because of its proximity to Franklin Park and because many people associate it with Franklin Park, we have included it here.
