Local Industry

“A lot of communities would be envious of what we have in Newton County – the way you all work on enriching and strengthening the business community. When we talk with Minneapolis (our home office) they are always impressed by what we have here in Covington.”

– Mark Bible,
Plant Manager, General Mills
