The State of Unexpected

With a population of more than 2.9 million, Kansas packs a heavy economic punch. A proactive legislative and regulatory environment and major advantages in costs, taxes, skilled workforce and major transportation assets have combined to make Kansas a haven for investment and innovation. 

We are aggressive in our efforts to grow the Kansas economy. Companies select Kansas due to distinct business advantages that translate to increased performance and profits.

The International Division at the Kansas Department of Commerce is available to assist you in your site selection process. We will work with you to create customized incentive proposals based on capital investment, job creation, employee compensation and training. We will also coordinate with Kansas communities 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.

Centrally Located in the Heart of America

Come to a state that fosters an educated workforce, reliable infrastructure and an affordable cost of living. Kansas gives you all of these and more. A wide variety of industries are thriving in our state, with new success stories every day. Whether by roadway, rail or air, Kansas offers excellent transportation and marketing advantages for your business. 

Because we’re centrally located, and because we’ve focused on building and maintaining an outstanding multimodal infrastructure, it’s easier and less expensive to ship to and from Kansas.
