Kansas

The Smart Investment

Kansas has been, and continues to be, aggressive in its efforts to grow our economy.  Major companies such as Merck Animal Health, Geico, PBI Gordon, Garmin, Overstock.com, Amazon, Kiewit, Mars, Hostess Brands, Garmin, American Multi-Cinema, Dairy Farmers of America, Kubota, ServiceMaster and General Motors all have chosen Kansas as their preferred business location.  These companies selected Kansas due to the business advantages our state offers, which can translate to increased performance and profits.   

The Kansas Department of Commerce is the lead economic development agency in the state. Our goal is to enhance the business climate by bringing businesses to the state and assisting businesses that already call Kansas home. 

The business recruitment team at the Kansas Department of Commerce is available as a resource during the site selection process. Whether you’re searching for a site location or a building, our team has the resources available to help you make an informed decision.  

Our business recruitment team creates customized incentive proposals based on capital investment, job creation, employee compensation and training. They also coordinate with community economic development professionals to develop proposals that include local incentives such as discounted building and land purchases, property tax reductions, build-to-suit agreements and other financing packages.
