Our Story

Two trust authorities

under one roof.

The Blackwell Industrial Authority has a long history of working in Blackwell under various versions of the name. On June 17, 1969, a trust indenture forming the final authority name of the Blackwell Industrial Authority was created to promote the development of industry for the benefit of the City of Blackwell. Since then, the Blackwell Industrial Park is home to several manufacturing, agricultural, and renewable industries.

The Blackwell Economic Development Authority is a trust under the City of Blackwell that was established December 1, 2016. Its purpose is to promote economic development in a wide scope of areas to benefit the City of Blackwell and surrounding communities. The BEDA is the Economic Development organization operating to support existing businesses for expansion and growth opportunities and attracting new business to Blackwell.

It is essential for providing sustenance, supporting rural livelihoods, and ensuring food security for global populations while facing challenges such as climate change, resource scarcity, and technological innovation.
