You'll feel right at home in Missouri's Meramec Region.
Located in the heart of the Ozarks in south-central Missouri, the region offers small-town charm and old fashioned values with a direct connection to cutting-edge technology.

Eight counties and 32 cities make up the region. There are gently rolling hills, flat prairies and clear picturesque streams. If you are looking to start a business or expand one, the region possesses all the necessities: affordable land, available buildings, a diversified work force with a strong work ethic, top-notch schools and educational institutions, most notably the Missouri University of Science and Technology, recognized worldwide for its engineers, and a large military base, Fort Leonard Wood.

From strategic and environmental planning to economic and community development, we have the assistance available for financing, infrastructure and marketing. Our transportation system-with Interstate 44 as its foundation-puts us right in the middle of things – whether it's tourism or manufacturing.

There's also quality health care, well-built homes at below-city prices, competitive utility rates and a host of genuine people who are committed to making you feel right at home in Missouri's Meramec Region.

Please browse our web site and consider our resources. We would welcome the opportunity to provide more information or better yet, arrange a tour. We are the Show-Me State and we'd like to Show-You the Meramec Region.
