Thayer County, NE County Profile

Thayer County: Strategic Location in the Heart of the Country

From Thayer County, businesses can reach the majority of east and west coast cities within two days. We are truly in the heart of the country and the ideal location for distribution, agriculture and manufacturing businesses. The cost of living and doing business here is lower than the national average (72%) which is an added benefit. 

Thayer County is made up of 11 cities with Hebron as its county seat. Located on the south line of Nebraska, Thayer County is known for an abundance of natural resources, which are partially used for agriculture. The sloping rolling hills and beautiful tarain offer plenty of space for growth and expansion. Companies like Cargill Ag, Norder Supply Inc., and others have used the combination of our natural resources, strong workforce and affordability to grow their businesses within the county. For example, Reinke Manufacturing Company of Deshler started in 1968, selling pivot irrigation rigs. They now employ over 400 people and are one of the four leading irrigation equipment manufacturers in the world.
