MIP's History

Business leaders helping business leaders–this is the history and vision of McMinnville Industrial Promotions.

MIP Since 1954

MIP has been helping grow business since the early 1950s.

Faced with a devastating economic crisis in 1953–loss of 300 jobs and several plant closures–a local group of 45 business and professional leaders pledged their own money to attract new businesses to McMinnville. These were leaders who were not only concerned with business success, but with the health and vitality of their community. They knew economic stability was important to strengthening their overall community and would provide greater opportunities for the future.

MIP began as a nonprofit organization, and in 1955 expanded to a community corporation. The following year it progressed to a for-profit with the same important mission–to attract new industry to McMinnville. Today, a volunteer Board freely shares their expertise and insight on behalf of a stronger and more stable economic climate for all.

 Early McMinnville

MIP was the first industrial development company in the Pacific Northwest to qualify for Small Business Administration funds. It was recognized by Governor Tom McCall when nine different industrial projects broke ground in McMinnville in 1969–the result of MIP’s “9 for 69” effort. MIP also formed a unique partnership with the City to acquire a $770,000 federal economic development grant to establish the city’s major industrial park infrastructure in 1983. Today, MIP continues to collaborate with others who share their mission and lead the effort to work toward a bright future.

MIP Board of Directors

Members of MIP’s Board of Directors live and work in McMinnville and all share in MIP’s focus–that economic stability is key to strengthening the overall community and leads to greater manufacturing and business opportunities for the future.
