Industry Sectors

Business is Booming

Greater Fargo Moorhead continues to thrive due to an economy that is both broad and diverse. We’re growing in population, employment and job creation, and it’s all due to a strong and expanding base of traditional and high-tech, emerging industries. In the tech-based industries, companies here benefit from the clustering effect, with advice, guidance and support all readily available from leaders who have walked the same path.

The list of industries in this section is not exhaustive – companies in several additional sectors do very well here – but this should give you an idea of who and what makes up our economic base.

Some of our largest employers include divisional, regional, national and global headquarters & facilities for Microsoft Business Solutions, Bobcat Co., John Deere Electronic Solutions, Border States Electric Supply, RDO Equipment Co., Sanford Medical Center, Titan Machinery and American Crystal Sugar.
