The Cape Girardeau region in southeast Missouri has long been an area of vibrant commerce and abundance, and a major transportation hub.
The region is home to five port facilities, seven major highways, Class I rail and a regional airport catering to virtually every type of business. The region has significant strengths in advanced manufacturing, agtech, and financial and professional services.
And the region is continually investing in its more than 170,000 strong labor force and business development via training, high quality universities and the regional Innovation Academy.
There are cost advantages to working out of Missouri. Corporate taxes, fuel taxes and property taxes are very low in the state. Utility costs among the lowest in the country.— Hugh Gilmore / Integrated Wind Energy
