The four-lane K96 Highway provides the City of Haven with excellent transportation access and easy commuting for the skilled workforce that exists in South Central Kansas.   When you combine outstanding transportation with industrial ground ready for development, rail service, a workforce with “Midwestern work ethic” and a business friendly state and local government, Haven makes a great home for business.

A diverse group of manufacturers including Kincaid Equipment Manufacturing, Color By Design,
Haven Steel Products, Inc. and Sleep Haven, Inc. manufacture everything from mattresses to
advanced agricultural equipment. Haven Steel Products recently selected Haven for a
major expansion greatly increasing their workforce.

A complete upgrade of the City’s water system and installation of fiber optic cable demonstrate Haven’s commitment to growth.
