The northern Illinois city of Rockford is known for manufacturing, especially machine tools and automotive assembly. The red-heeled socks made famous by sock monkeys were originally manufactured here. On the outskirts of Rockford, a Chrysler assembly plant was built in 1965; it remains one of the city’s largest employers.
