“Harris Fabrication is one of the local companies helping put Topeka/Shawnee County on the map as a hub for manufacturing. […] When they were first considering expansion, the company started working with GO Topeka on the small-business side to see if small-business incentives might be a good fit. It quickly became clear the ambitious scope of their project would be better suited to traditional expansion incentives.

I have no doubt their innovative approach to business will continue to positively impact this community.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
