The Sedalia/Warrensburg region’s top industries include agtech, advanced manufacturing, defense and distribution.
The region is a prime location for industrial and manufacturing companies looking for a strategic and competitive U.S. location with a strong transportation infrastructure foundation, combined with a job ready and available workforce.
The region is home to the 509th Bomb Wing, part of Air Force Global Strike Command, at Whiteman Air Force Base. The bomb wing and its fleet of B-2 Spirit bombers serve as part of the Air Force’s conventional and strategic combat force.
And with major companies like Ditzfeld Transfer, food solutions company Shreiber Foods and advanced manufacturer 3M in the neighborhood, shipping products in every direction, its clear why the Sedalia/Warrensburg region is a key part of North America’s Distribution Center.
We have been very impressed with the business-friendly approach that the State of Missouri, Johnson County and the City of Warrensburg have provided. This project demonstrates our commitment to western Missouri by creating hundreds of jobs in the region. We are proud to become a bigger part of the local community.— Dollar Tree / Bob Sasser
From a strategic standpoint, we figured Missouri was the right place to be, because most of our competition was out on the west coast.— ProEnergy Services / Jeff and Cara Canon
This rebar micro-mill project is consistent with our long-term strategy for profitable growth and builds on our position as the low-cost producer. Strategically positioning this micro-mill in Sedalia will give us a sustained cost advantage over other domestic steel producers supplying rebar from outside the region.— Nucor / John Ferriola
This move to Missouri is a well thought through strategy where all the benefits for all counterparts are optimized. The local authorities have been very easy to work with to help develop this project.— Nammo AS / Raimo Helasmäki
