The Boone County Economic Development Corporation reports that they have seen a large amount of growth all over Boone County in just the first six months of 2018.

In 2017, 14 new companies came to Boone County. So far this year, they have already closed 11 deals, and nine of those are attraction deals, meaning they don’t already have a presence in Boone County. Officials say it is normal to see one of these projects ever year, so seeing this many new projects is very encouraging.
