York County, with a population 13,862, is in the heart of agricultural country and a transportation corridor which includes east/west by I-80 and U.S. Hwy. 34, and north/south by U.S. 81, a major north-south 4-lane expressway that stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada (Pan-America Highway).  Burlington Northern Santa Fe’s main line travels through York County including Waco, York and Bradshaw. There is also a line extending up to Benedict giving many opportunities for rail service companies. Private air service is available in York, two commercial air services are within 45 minutes, and Omaha Eppely Airline is within 90 minutes giving you a choice of air service.  Other competitive advantages offered here are fertile soil, plentiful underground water supply, a community minded 4-year college, a strong and loyal workforce, and some of the lowest electric rates in the nation due to Nebraska being a 100% all public power state.  Businesses in York County have been able to recruit workforce from an hour drive time, which includes the metro areas of both Lincoln and Grand Island, greatly expanding the labor pool.  This competitive location has attracted transportation logistics & warehousing, advanced manufacturing, and agriculture companies.
