Impressive Iowa Businesses

Newsletter writingEach time I write newsletter articles for Iowa State University’s Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS), I am constantly impressed by the work being done at Iowa companies and by CIRAS.

In the latest issue, I had the opportunity to talk with a door and lock company that continues to grow after more than 100 years in business, a deicing product company that’s working on a revolutionary product, three companies that are improving their online presence after attending an internet marketing boot camp, and Lean business leaders who have created an organization to support each other in developing and implementing Lean processes and practices.

Check out the amazing work by CIRAS and Iowa companies in the recently published winter edition of CIRAS News. (See my articles on the cover and on pages 4, 7, 12 and 13).

Iowa Business Insights

Newsletter coverI enjoy writing quarterly newsletter articles for Iowa State University’s Center for Industrial and Research Service (CIRAS) because of the excellent business people I get to interview and small businesses I get to learn about.

One of my latest articles is the cover story for the CIRAS News Summer 2013 newsletter. The story is about two Iowa-based companies—one that manufactures trailers and another that manufactures sports equipment—and the product testing they do at Iowa State’s Structural Engineering Laboratory.

Read the cover story, plus check out my other articles in this edition including ones titled “CIRAS Presents Products Made in Iowa at Engineering Career Fair,” “CEO Peer Council Service Now Being Offered,” and “Iowa Business Council and CIRAS Partnership Helps Iowa Companies Succeed.”
