The Hutchinson Economic Development Authority strives to be an active partner with our local family of companies, not just during the recruitment and implementation phases of the project, but on a permanent, ongoing basis.

The Hutchinson EDA will be the “go to” organization to get you to the right people, coordinate the appropriate meetings, facilitate required services, provide leadership on your behalf and act as your company’s advocate not just during the expansion – but for as long as your company is a part of our local economy.

There’s a reason why world-class companies such as 3M, NuCrane Manufacturing, Warrior Manufacturing & Hutchinson Technology call Hutchinson home – because in Hutchinson, our business is business.

We’d like to add your company to that group of world-class companies that call Hutchinson “home.”

Before you start: Is owning a business for you?
