Officials in northeast Iowa are trying to keep a manufacturing business, and its 80 jobs, from leaving Oelwein. The owners of “X-L Trailers” say they’re looking for a more modern building for their operation. They currently manufacture large custom trailers in an old railroad building in Oelwein. X-L says they’ve received offers of incentives to re-locate from Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and other Iowa communities. State and local officials are trying to find X-L another building in Oelwein, or in another city in Iowa. The company has been in Oelwein since 1995.
