Advanced manufacturing is Iowa’s largest industry - from food and ingredients products, to medical devices, aerospace products, agricultural and construction machinery. It is a bioscience epicenter commited to innovation and collaboration. Iowa is the second largest wind energy producer, and companies, by working with Iowa’s utilities, may operate their facilities with a zero carbon footprint. Iowa’s Energy Office is currently reviewing its green hydrogen strategy. Medium-sized companies, global industry leaders as well as startup companies – all find a welcoming business climate in Iowa. Already one of the top headquarters for the finance and insurance industries, Iowa is the perfect place to expand, relocate or start a financial services business. It leads with a pro-business mindset, a progressive and responsive regulatory environment, and offers one of the lowest insurance premium tax rates in the country — one percent.
