Newton Development Corporation Updates


The former Maytag Plant 2, north of Newton, has had the entire exterior painted white with gray accents. Phoenix Investors, the owner of the property, decided to give it a facelift! 

The next Human Resources Roundtable will be Nov. 14th at noon. Bring your lunch to DMACC room 248B on the NE 2nd level of the main building. We will start the conversation with the topic “Respectful Workplace and Why You Need This Now” and we will end with Q&A around current HR needs, as you see them. Contact Tanya Michener ( for more information. 

NDC was excited to honor DMACC as they celebrate 25 years in Newton and to showcase Julia Prendergast as the 2018 Entrepreneur of the Year at our annual Salute to Business and Industry luncheon. In addition, Newton’s own Dick Davidson with Thombert received the Legends in Manufacturing award from ABI and Elevate Iowa for companies with 100-300 employees. Great people make Newton the growing place to be!
