IEDA Certifies Osceola Industrial Site

The Iowa Economic Development Authority has announced an Osceola industrial site has been certified through the Iowa Certified Sites program.

The E. Eddy Saylor Industrial Park includes 138 acres of flat development-ready ground with easy access to Interstate I-35 and U.S. Highway 34. The site is zoned for light and heavy industrial uses, providing opportunities for a variety of projects.

Site certification remains one of the most important factors in the site selection business. The process also speeds up the development schedule by having due diligence completed and plans in place to mitigate any identified issues, reducing risk to companies.

IEDA launched the Iowa Certified Sites program in 2012 to address the lack of project-ready industrial sites in the state. It is an independent, third-party program with certification through the nationally recognized site selection firm Quest Site Solutions. The program is designed to consider national site location standards, as well as Iowa’s natural assets and the needs of the state’s targeted industry sectors of advanced manufacturing, biosciences and finance and insurance.

The site joins 27 others across the state that have been designated as project-ready.
