The Moberly, Missouri, area – a three county partnership located in both the Hannibal/Kirksville region and the Columbia/Jefferson City region – was featured in the Nov/Dec 2016 Trade & Industry Development magazine due to its “amazing transportation access” and “infrastructure.”
According to the magazine …
“The Moberly, Missouri area offers amazing transportation access to the world through unique and well-developed infrastructure. The region contains 30-minute access to Interstate 70, four-lane highways running north-south as well as east-west, dual, Class-A, rail-served sites, port access and two airports to accommodate executive jet travel. Whether by truck, plane, rail or barge, the Moberly, Missouri, area delivers products to the world. Fifty-two percent of all U.S. manufacturing operations can be reached within one-day drive of the Moberly region. Equidistant from Kansas City and St. Louis airports, a two-hour drive from the Moberly area enables the delivery of people or products anywhere. Coupled with a workforce of 100,000 within a 30-mile radius, including many skilled craftsmen and advanced degree holders, the region experiences significant economic activity. With progressive cities and pro-growth policies, the region is actively seeking to expand its reach.
“After multiple expansions of existing businesses and successful attraction efforts, the region is poised for continued growth.
