A video series, Business, Community, Opportunity, highlighting business across the region is currently being released by the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance.  

From small businesses to large corporations, this video series will be released shortly to celebrate the diversity of businesses in the region and their importance to the economy. 

This exciting series highlights 10 businesses across the region and showcases the positive impact they have on the community. From job creation to economic development, these businesses are making a difference in the lives of their employees and customers. 

The first video in the series profiles Fletcher Wood Products and how the business has grown with the help of the community. Fletcher Wood Products has been in operation for over 60 years. They've seen success by diversifying their services and focusing on quality workmanship. 

More information will be available this week, and we encourage all of you to view, like, comment, and share. Our region has a lot to celebrate.
