Economic Development

Isanti County is home to over 65 manufacturers – many of them tech intensive.  We welcome new business growth and have two state certified “Shovel Ready” sites located in Cambridge and Isanti, demonstrating our commitment to rolling out the red carpet – and cutting the red tape – for new and expanding businesses.   

Located in the north central part of the Minneapolis Saint Paul metro area, Isanti County offers employers:

  • A stable productive rural/small town workforce as well as talent from  more urban parts of the metro area.
  • Affordable business and industrial parks.
  • Customized financing and incentive packages.
  • Exceptional workforce training partners.
  • Regional center amenities including Anoka Ramsey Community College, a large Allina Medical Center and Hospital, and a wide range of shopping options.
  • Excellent schools, neighborhoods, and recreational opportunities.

But most of all we offer a warm welcome and our commitment to helping your business locate or expand successfully.
