About

Welcome to the website for the Hastings Economic Development Corporation's speculative industrial building.

For more information about Hastings and our area industry, please visit our full website at www.hastingsedc.com

In Hastings, we are committed to those companies and individuals that are invested in our community. Proof of our commitment exists in the form of a brand new incentive and growth program developed by the City of Hastings, Hastings Utilities, and the Hastings Economic Development Corporation in 2011. The program, which went into effect January 1, 2012, has already helped to assist two local companies, Thermo King and Drake Tool and Design.

Because of our community's appreciation and concern for its existing industry, Hastings and the Hastings Economic Development Corporation have enjoyed a great deal of success with the recruitment of new industry and the introduction of new businesses to the community. In exploring our organization’s website at www.hastingsedc.com, you will find that Hastings is a community well suited for industry. Our level of manufacturing employment is nearly twice the national average, our 50 mile labor pool is in excess of 100,000, and our community's utility infrastructure is built to meet the needs of industry now and well into the future. Moreover, with two colleges in our community, Hastings College and Central Community College, Hastings is well positioned to provide the level of educated and talented individuals necessary to drive the industry of tomorrow.

Testaments to Hastings' commitment to industry include three developed industrial parks, a brand new $650 million power plant, and a commitment of $5 million in incentive funding by Hastings Utilities to immediately assist in economic development projects. Perhaps the greatest evidence of Hastings' commitment to business and industry is the continued investment, growth, and expansion of those companies already doing business here.
