Scribner’s Industrial Sites are located in eastern Nebraska, in the northern area of Dodge County. The available industrial sites are centrally located between the biggest regional cities: Omaha, Lincoln, Columbus, Norfolk and Sioux City.
We have industrial access just like larger metropolitan areas, but our industrial access comes with an enjoyable small-town experience. In 2024, the industrial site will be located right off the 4-lane Highway 275. It is currently located right off the 2-lane Highway 275.
Our small town has more than 60 active businesses, we know what hard work looks like, and it looks like Scribner.
