Iowa's 10 Industrial Sites "Development Ready"

August 20, 2015

With the addition of six more certified industrial sites - bringing the total to 10 - Iowa jumps to the top of the list for companies looking for Midwest expansion, a low cost of doing business and a talented labor pool. Created in 2012, the Iowa Certified Site Program combines national site location standards with Iowa's natural assets and business/targeted industries needs. The first four sites - all 200 plus acres - completed designation in 2014.  

Along with the additional sites, the state also added a green building classification to its rigorous program. The Woodward Eco Business Park will be the pilot site and new applications for the green classification will be accepted July 2016. For information on all of Iowa's Certified Sites, click here.
