Who We Are
Started in 1986, Delaware County Economic Development (DCED) is the oldest countywide industrial development group in the State of Iowa. Since our inception, we have attracted and retained more than fifteen companies, and have helped with nearly a dozen expansion projects. Over 600 manufacturing jobs have been created in the last decade alone.
Our main focus today is the development and implementation of one of the most sophisticated workforce development and recruitment programs in the state.
What We Do
For many years, the Alliance has been working to address the short and long-term employment and training needs of our local workforce. Through our efforts, we have made progress in providing our employers and citizens with timely information on the area labor force, worker training programs for companies.
