We invite you to do business in one of the most family and business friendly rural communities in Minnesota!
Wood products and tourism industries dominate our economy. Boise Cascade Corporation employs 1,150 people, plus creates spin-off jobs for loggers and transporters. Because Boise Cascade is one of the safest and competitive mills in the world, we forecast a bright future for the wood products industry.
The tourism industry is steadily growing and employs hundreds of citizens in service positions. Presently, elected leaders are working diligently to establish a "Voyageur Interpretive Center" to complement our beautiful Voyageurs National Park. Rainy Lake serves as the northern gateway to the park.
Cold weather testing is imperative to our winter economy and is an area projected to grow. For over 30 years, engineers from around the world have traveled here to test their products during our extreme winters, providing jobs and injecting dollars into the economy. Elected leaders are in the midst of designing a state of the art testing facility which will prove to be one of the best centers in the country. When completed, it will lure companies serious about their cold weather initiatives.
Our present telecommunications system includes fiber optic capabilities, and is now being further upgraded to meet or exceed the country's top systems. Such systems will enable businesses to locate in International Falls and do business anywhere in the world with no increased costs. Quality highways, air transportation, bus and rail service make it easy to travel, import and export.
All this, along with being one of the busiest ports into Canada, makes International Falls an ideal rural business community, abounding with opportunities for business, family life and leisure. We invite you to join our family.
