A Smart Place to Do Business

Missouri is home to 10 of America’s Fortune 500 companies and 13 of the Fortune 1000 for a total of 23 of the nation’s biggest brands in the business. Why? Because Missouri outranks the majority of other states in overall lowest costs of doing business, lowest tax rates, lowest electricity and fuel costs, and a labor force of nearly 3 million skilled workers that exceeds the entire populations of 20 states.

Fortune 1000 companies are attracted to the long-term business benefits that Missouri has to offer. That’s why firms among today’s top industry sectors – including advanced manufacturing, information technology, financial and professional services, bio-sciences, transportation and logistics, healthcare, energy solutions, and others – plant their flags in the Show Me State, and many of those are in Southwest Missouri.
