PEDCO’s mission is to stimulate, diversify and escalate the economy of the greater Pierre area.
First formed in 1980 as Pierre Unlimited, the Pierre Economic Development Corporation has been involved in many aspects of Pierre’s growth. The Ramkota RiverCentre, Runnings Farm & Fleet Distribution Center, the new South Dakota Governor’s Residence and Eagle Creek Software Services are all examples of an enthusiastic board of directors and hundreds of dedicated volunteers united in the cause of building a better Pierre.
PEDCO is committed to expanding the area’s economy through diversification of employment opportunities. Companies considering expansion or relocation will find no red tape, supportive government and a workforce ethic offering the highest level of quality, reliability and productivity.
Incentives, financing, wage and labor studies, facilities, training and a cost comparison of doing business in Pierre are all bundled together to make the site selection process easy.
