Business Clusters

A Small City with a Big Business Climate

St. Joseph is a city capturing national and global attention for success in multiple industries, including skilled manufacturing, agricultural sciences and health care. Some of our top employers fall into the education, manufacturing and health fields – but our city stands out for its diverse and innovative range of business clusters , more than most national cities of our size.

Recent national awards, including a listing as one of the “Best Cities for Job Growth” from New Geography, are a demonstration of our city’s commitment to a successful business climate.

Other signs of our success and forward-thinking attitude are found in recent multi-million dollar expansions, including a $150 million investment from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc. We’re also home to two Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award winners, a top award given by the U.S. Presidential Office – Nestle Purina Petcare and Mosaic Life
