Greene Industrial Park Offers Rural Setting with City Services
Buildings & Sites
Situated on the outskirts of Greene, Iowa, adjacent to Highway 14, the Westside industrial park was developed to meet the needs of local manufacturers looking to expand as well as to attract new businesses to the community. Its location on a main north/south state highway in northern Iowa provides equal access to the Waterloo/Cedar Falls and Mason City metro areas.
Features of the Development
Up to sixteen acres are available to accommodate new tenants, and recent technology investments provide business-class internet access. The Westside Industrial Park offers:
- Fiber-optic broadband with speeds up to 1 GB per second
- Easy access to all Midwest markets via Highway 18/27, which is only 16 miles to the north
- Rural setting for easy in and outbound truck access and reduced traffic congestion for deliveries
The Westside Industrial Park is perfectly situated to attract regional distribution and small to mid-sized manufacturing facilities. Workforce training needs can easily be met with services provided by two community colleges: Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo/Cedar Falls and North Iowa Area Community College in Mason City. The close proximity to these cities also brings access to a skilled workforce, while the small town of Greene offers a slower-paced, supportive, safe and inviting location to grow your business. Utility infrastructure includes city water and sewer, natural gas from Black Hills Energy, and electric from Butler County REC.
Development of the Westside Industrial Park
The park was developed in 1999 through a partnership of the Butler County Rural Electric Cooperative (REC), Corn Belt Power Cooperative, and Greene Development Corporation. The City of Greene invested in streets as well as water and sewer infrastructure. Soon after the park was developed, a local mold engineering and fabrication firm that serves the plastics industry expanded into the new park.
In 2007, the Butler-Grundy Development Alliance partnered with the Butler County REC and Corn Belt Power to construct a spec building. The facility was soon acquired by an industrial coatings company that was located in a nearby community and needed space to expand.
