Data & Call Centers

While Grand Island is currently home to and competitive for a variety of business support services (call centers, payment processing, outsourced or shared services, etc.), many residents expressed a strong desire to see economic diversification into a wider array of corporate and professional services, and often mentioned this desire within the context of providing employment opportunities for future generations so that they can remain in Grand Island, or return to Grand Island following graduation from college. 

Grand Island is equiped and continues to enhance the regional asset base, including but are not limited to:

  •  a well-educated workforce with ample business- and financial-related bachelor's degree holders
  •  quality of life amenities that appeal to the highly-educated
  •  increased options in terms of direct service to major markets across the country
  • abundant, high-quality office space

Existing corporate and professional services include legal, marketing and public relations, architecture and engineering, computer systems design, insurance carriers, telecommunication providers, construction (AEC firms), and a variety of research and development services operate a multitude of regional headquarters and regional offices that serve various submarkets.

The table that follows captures headquarters operations, and its growth in recent years largely reflects the expansion of existing companies that are headquartered in Grand Island, including but not limited to Hornady Manufacturing and the Bosselman Companies. 

“Grand Island provided us the ability to build and maintain professional careers, while still being present in our children's lives. That's the 'better opportunity' we found here.”
