Member Spotlight - Interpower Corporation

Iowa Taxpayers Association wants you to get to know our members and to provide opportunities for networking. Each month ITA highlights a member company. 

This month's member company spotlight is on Interpower Corporation. Following is their answers to our questions regarding information on their company and why they are an ITA member.

Tell us a little about Interpower Corporation.
Interpower Corporation is a privately-owned Iowa corporation that manufactures power cords and cord sets for use anywhere in the world. We are the only company left in the U.S. that manufacturers this range of product. We have about 80 employees with a headquarters in Oskaloosa and satellite sites in Ames and Lamoni and a wholly-owned sales and distribution subsidiary in Milton Keynes, UK.
 
What is an interesting fact about your industry?
Interpower Corporation was founded in Berkeley, California in 1975 and moved to Oskaloosa, Iowa in 1993.
 
Why are you a member of ITA?
Sensible business taxation only happens when a lot of people are willing to roll up their sleeves and participate in the tax design process. ITA Membership is one way we try to influence this process.
 
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to tax policy?
Business property tax rates are high enough that they definitely influence our willingness to add new facilities.
