The lack of skilled workers for specialized jobs—the troubling “skills gap”—is a growing problem in many small communities.
Elk River, “The Light Industrial Hub of the Northwest Metro” is an extraordinary location for manufacturing facilities in part because of our proximity to the Twin Cities. Our small-town community is an easy 35-mile commute from Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Elk River’s many industrial facilities are able to draw their staff from the robust workforce of the metro area. This is one of the many reasons Elk River supports over 60 manufacturing facilities now, and is prepared to host more.
