Economic Development Partners
Additionally, in the 1990's, the Bettendorf Development Corporation (BDC) formed to support with the creation of Bettendorf's industrial park. Today that industrial park is home to many thriving manufacturing and industrial operations including Olympic Steel, LeClaire Manufacturing, Berry Global, and many more. Since it's inception, the BDC has been instrumental in assisting the City of Bettendorf with strategic property acquisitions which had led to such projects like the new Ascentra Credit Union corporate headquarters and land assemblages that have assisted with the pedestrian amenities that adjoin the new I-74 Bridge. For more information on becoming a member of the BDC, please call (563) 344-4060.
"It takes a village", and through our many partnerships, Bettendorf enjoys a thriving business climate, awesome tourism and recreational amenities, and a prosperous mix of small, mid-sized and large business operations.
