Why Site Selectors
Start Here

The MOKAN Joplin megaregion is an ideal intersection of commerce and community at the Crossroads of America's I-44/I-49 corridors.

The seven-county region offers plenty of unique possibilities, including multiple city and rural business industrial park options, some rail and state certified, within a 40-mile radius of the Joplin-Pittsburg-Miami MSAs, with prime warehousing and distribution sites. Site selectors find that investments go further here with lower costs of living and doing business.

It takes all kinds of people, business, and experiences to make a place. Big industry, a small start-up, or somewhere in between, there is a place for you here.

From Joplin (JLN), we offer direct flights to Denver International Airport (DEN) and Chicago's O'Hare International Airport (ORD), while Bentonville, Kansas City, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Springfield, and St. Louis markets are within a few hours drive. And our unique location makes two-day shipping possible to almost anywhere in the U.S.

Let us help you navigate options in locating or expanding your business here.
