Company Testimonials

Manhattan’s concentration of research talent and high quality of life makes it an ideal location for the Center to thrive for years to come.” — Forrest Chumley, Ph.D., President and CEO of Heartland Plant Innovations, which will operate the $8.3 million Kansas Wheat Innovation Center facility scheduled to open in Manhattan in late 2012.

One of the best features of Topeka is our diversity of industry. Topeka is not tied to one particular industry. When you look at this diversity coupled with a lower cost of doing business this a compelling reason for companies to locate here. Plus, when you look at the Eastern and Western seaboards, and see what is going on in the economy on either coasts you can establish your business here for a lot less than you would in Los Angeles or New York.” — Dave Keith, President and CEO, se2 Corporation.
