Nationally in Labor Participation
The WKREDA region includes the 55 counties in western Kansas. Production agriculture, beef cattle finishing and slaughter, oil and gas exploration and natural gas processing, and wind energy have historically influenced the economy of the region.
While a significant part of the manufacturing sector supports agriculture and oil and gas, many companies recognize the benefit of our central location, low manufacturing cost, and superb labor force. The recent expansion of dairy farms and telecommunications businesses demonstrates how companies can benefit from our low input costs.
