From the bringing of Methode to Carthage in 1975, to enabling it to expand onto nearby property, CIDC has been doing just that. Now, with a new 4-lane highway coming from the south and going east, CIDC has purchased 2 parcels of land in the highway's path for the purpose of expanding Carthage's business sector.
