About Our Communities

With a career in a mid-sized city in the Midwest, you can have both a professional and rewarding career as well as time to enjoy life outside of the office with your family. Iowa, Wisconsin and North Dakota are some of the healthiest and safest places to live and raise a child with a strong educational and healthcare system, low crime rates, and a low cost of living. Life here is good. 




Our main office is located in the northeastern Iowa town of Cedar Falls. This area is commonly referred to as the Cedar Valley. Here we enjoy a four seasons climate, short commute times to work, and a community rich in Midwestern values. Cedar Falls boasts an impressive array of recreational trails and outdoors activities, from snow-sledding in the winter to boating at George Wythe State Park in the summer. We have a strong Arts community within Cedar Falls and a wonderful downtown district perfect for shopping or night life. And Cedar Falls is also home to the University of Northern Iowa Panthers.

Our facility is located in the Cedar Falls Industrial and Technology Park, which has an impressive array of over 170 businesses employing over 7000 people in manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, tansportation, technology, and related business services.

The Cedar Falls/Waterloo metropolitan area is the 4th largest urban area in the state of Iowa, with a population of approximately 150,000.  Cities like Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Milwaukee are within a four to five hour drive.



Located along the banks of the Mississippi River, Dubuque is home to John Deere Dubuque Works, where several of our employees work on site. Dubuque is known for its hilly terrain and river bluffs as well as its small-town warmth coupled with the conveniences of an urban setting. 

Dubuque ranked number one by Forbes as the best small city to raise a family.
