AMERICA’S BUSINESS CENTER. LITERALLY.

Geary County and Junction City give you a business advantage no other community can match. We’re located near the geographic center of the United States, with five exits on I-70, the nation’s main cross country highway. If your company is involved in national distribution, we offer the most strategic, cost-effective sites in the USA. There’s a long, successful history of national distribution here, starting with the U.S. Army’s First Division in the 1800’s and continuing today with companies like Foot Locker and their 500+ employees. Need to move products by rail? Kansas City is America’s largest rail center by tonnage, so our area is well served by national carriers and short-line railroads. Air service? It’s just twelve miles away at Manhattan Regional Airport. Or you can connect to anywhere with Kansas City International, consistently ranked in the top five of all U.S. airports in J.D.
