Business Retention and Expansion

The North Dakota Department of Commerce and its partners work hard to assist existing business through many of the same programs used to attract new businesses. The Manufacturing Extension Partnership, for instance, assists manufacturers to help them become more competitive, and other programs and incentives are available to assist in efforts to expand or continue operations.

Commerce business development staff assist all primary sector businesses, whether new or existing, especially those related to our target industries. Local development staff in communities throughout the state also pursue business retention and expansion activities.  We encourage you to use the links below, and throughout our site, to call upon Commerce or community staff to assist you in your business expansion or retention needs.
