Site Selection: Sedalia and Warrensburg Offer Central Perks

Missouri’s prime location doesn’t get more convenient for businesses looking to grow in the Midwest, according to an article from the Site Selection team. As a leading region for agtech, advanced manufacturing, defense and distribution, Sedalia/Warrensburg offers industries a prime location and talented workforce that can’t be beat.

Some of the region’s largest companies include Ditzfield Transfer, Schreiber Foods and 3M. The region is also home to the Air Force Global Strike Command’s 509th Bomb Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base. Pilots from the base also teach at the University of Central Missouri.

In 2017, Nucor, the largest producer of steel in the nation, invested $250 million to construct a steel bar micro-mill in Sedalia. The investment will create more than 250 high-paying jobs.

“This rebar micro-mill project is consistent with out long-term strategy for profitable growth and builds on our position as the low-cost producer,” said John Ferriola, Chairman, CEO and President of Nucor. “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.”
