This MOKAN megaregion is an interconnected and growing area of cities and more than just a place to work or live. It’s an ideal intersection of people and business 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. Over 1 million square feet of warehousing was added here in 2020. 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), Houston Bush Intercontinental (IAH), 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.
