Expanding in Saint Joseph

“We plan on being here for a long time. We’re appreciative of the work of the Chamber, the Representatives and others in our expansion efforts.” – Kendall Randolph, CEO, Sunshine Display

Grow in St. Joseph. We Are Right Beside You.

St. Joseph has an aggressive and well-coordinated community economic development program built on active collaboration with City, County and State government, as well as local developers to attract new companies and help them grow.

Expansion in St. Joseph is natural for many companies, due to the city’s perfect location near I-29 and I-36 for distribution, as well as easy proximity to several other major interstate connectors. With excellent incentives, and utilities and taxes that are lower than many national rates, growth is everywhere in St. Joseph. The city saw an increase in new payroll of $21 million in 2010.
