Platte County, Missouri

Platte County is home to Kansas City International Airport (KCI) which was voted “most user friendly” airport by the World Travel Award committee. Doing business in Platte County can be done quickly and efficiently due in part to proximity to KCI and is only twenty minutes from downtown Kansas City.

Platte County also has a strong highway system with I-435, I-29, I-35 and Highway 152 making travel easy within the Kansas City metro.  Platte County has the third highest per capita income in the state of Missouri and second highest in the KCMSA. The population growth over the last four census decades has never been less than twenty percent.
