Prospering from productivity is one way to describe the story of Cass County. A dedicated employee base and a no-nonsense work ethic are the key lures to this booming business center.
America's Heartland is drawing industry leaders like Microsoft and digital map data provider NAVTEQ. Manufacturing, financial services and health care are also represented. Caterpillar's recent expansion of its facility in West Fargo is expected to add 250 positions over the next three years.
An added bonus for companies looking to set up shop in Cass County: its Growth Initiative Fund, a community revolving loan fund which provides support for projects that help expand local job creation.
These terrific small cities offer strong job opportunities, great schools, low crime, quality health care, and a true sense of community.
