Why Great Falls?

Great Falls is located on the Rocky Mountain front on Interstate 15 between Calgary and Salt Lake City with 24/7 customs, foreign trade zone, and category 1 all-weather international airport. Our economy excels in food/bio/agricultural processing, steel fabrication, energy production and support, logistics, and back office/call center operations. We offer a new BNSF-certified rail industrial park, custom workforce training, and an array of economic development incentives. 

“Great Falls is home. While I’m from Germany, I lived on the North Coast of Ireland for 15 years when my company brought me to Great Falls. When the company asked me to move back to Europe, I said no. Out of all the places I’ve lived I enjoy the way of life and people in Great Falls the most.” Matthias Schalper, Owner, KellerGeist Pub Theater
