Letter from Rolla Mayor


To put it simply, the city of Rolla is ready.

No matter what the company size, from Fortune 500 firms to ambitious young startups, whether the company is “high-tech” or “low tech” or anywhere in between, Rolla is ready with the human and natural resources to foster higher levels of achievement and success.

One of those resources is the globally renowned Missouri University of Science & Technology, which last year propelled Rolla into the nation’s Top 15 metro areas with the highest growth of engineering graduates. While the ranking puts Rolla on par with cities like New York City, Boston and San Diego in producing tomorrow’s top talent, residents here enjoy low-cost, high-quality micropolitan living. And it’s quality rather than quantity that has made Missouri S&T a highly valued research partner for the U.S. Military as well as global companies.  The university offers rich opportunities for partnerships, research and development, and technology transfer, made even easier with Rolla’s Innovation Park, where leading companies like Garmin and Boeing have established thriving offices. Innovation Park is one more way Rolla is ready.

Our location is easily accessible and cost-effective, offering a labor force driven by an admirable work ethic that has helped create an impressive share of home-grown successes.

Rolla is ready to assist—however, wherever and whenever you company needs it—with comprehensive teamwork. Our economic development director, your personal liaison, connects your operation with the right location and the right assets so that you can leverage the maximum benefits from our high-value incentives. Our community development director is your conduit for project development, keeping your operation on track for the speediest startup.  And, our public works director is the “can do” person who makes sure our “works” works best for you.

Together, Rolla is ready to create a world-class home for your success.

Aren’t you ready? Let’s talk!


Louis J. Magdits, IV
Mayor, City of Rolla
