About Us

The Kansas Edge is a major initiative lead by the Department of Commerce to showcase the world-class business environment in Kansas, which includes recent tax reforms; improved regulatory environment; revamped career and technical training efforts; competitive relocation incentives; existing manufacturing expertise, and the state’s intellectual and research assets.

Our Focus
The Kansas Edge is focused on highlighting the state’s strengths in response to the growing national trend in reshoring that could return 800,000 to 2.5 million jobs from the foreign operations of both U.S. and international companies, and their suppliers, back to the United States over the next decade.

As the state’s lead economic development agency, the Kansas Department of Commerce strives to empower individuals, businesses and communities to achieve prosperity in Kansas.

Department of Commerce
Commerce uses a variety of programs and services that create jobs, attract new investment, provide workforce training, encourage community development and promote the state as a great place to start, relocate or expand a business.
