The first three awards from the state’s new economic development fund have been to companies in the financial services, computer and life science industries. Earlier this month, Wells Fargo received a 10-million dollar grant, and this past week computer software designer got a million and TransOva Genetics received a nine million dollar commitment. But Governor Tom Vilsack is seeking to assure one of the state’s traditional industries that it is not forgotten. Vilsack says state officials “must not and will not forget” the state’s manufacturing industry as he says manufacturing is an important segment of Iowa’s economy. He says state officials have been working with a number of long-standing industries to retain the good-paying jobs, and the Governor says that effort will continue.
