From Area Development Magazine:
“We greatly appreciate the warm welcome from the State of Kansas and the City of Dodge City officials whose values of integrity and excellence closely align with ours. […] Dodge City gives us many opportunities including a local and skilled labor force, a supportive and expanding agricultural region, and an excellent transportation network that allows us to easily reach our expanding markets. We’re really happy with our decision and excited about becoming a part of this outstanding community.”
“Our first-class workforce and central location make Kansas one of the best places in the nation to do business. […] It’s great to see another major food manufacturer like Hilmar choose to put their trust in our state and Dodge City for their newest facility.” […]
“The economic impact to the community will be compounded substantially by the additional dairies, transportation and services that will be required to support the processing facility once operational as well as the impact that the construction phase will have on our region.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
