Ottumwa Economic Development Corp…
…is committed to promoting the overall economic health of the region through quality jobs, livable wages, and vibrant neighborhoods. We serve the Wapello County communities of Ottumwa, Agency, Blakesburg, Chillicothe, Eddyville, Eldon, and Kirkville, although we are also active in the six county region of Southeast Iowa.
Ottumwans enjoy a robust public transit system, fiber optic broadband, updated roads and bridges, active rail lines, and connections to both state and national highways such as US 34, US 63, IA 149, and the Des Moines to Burlington Expressway; and we’re within an hour’s drive from the Avenue of the Saints (St. Louis to St. Paul corridor).
As home to the likes of Cargill, John Deere, and the Iowa Bioprocessing Center- a 1600 acre, $1.5 billion agricultural complex- our area is an ideal location for growth and prosperity. Feel free to browse the website, and if you have questions, or more interest, give us a call.
