Koochiching County in northern Minnesota offers businesses ample room to grow. The largest city, International Falls, is on the United States’ border with Canada, a strategic location from which to serve markets in both countries. It is home to one of the busiest rail crossings into the United States, and is economically linked to the Canadian city of Fort Frances immediately across the border.
Agriculture, forest products, and tourism are dominant industries, but Koochiching County offers competitive advantages for all types of businesses. Low-priced energy, ready industrial sites, a skilled workforce, quality highway and rail services, higher education and healthcare, and advancing telecommunications are just a few. If that’s not enough, Voyageurs National Park is right in the backyard!
