Economic Development

The Town of Lysander is home to companies and organizations of all sizes. We have a strong community of small businesses and play host to several large corporations such as Anheuser-Busch, McLane Northeast, Agrana Foods, and Gypsum Express.

Our Town has several regional resources that can impact efficient business metrics such as:

  • Easy access to transportation and distribution networks,
  • Land available to accommodate efficient expansion,
  • Proximity to one of the largest consumer markets in the world,
  • An outstanding supply of water, and
  • A highly skilled workforce with strong work values and ethics.

Several organizations already have found a desirable environment to conduct their operations and achieve their business objectives here in the Town of Lysander.


“Since 1983, Anheuser-Busch has been a strong contributor to the local community and is pleased to do business in Lysander. We brew many styles of quality beers here thanks to our committed employees and we are proud of our corporate citizenship.”
