DUBUQUE, Iowa - Nothing says we plan on sticking around for a while than a $12 million capital investment.

Flexsteel Industries celebrated the opening of its new world headquarters today in the Port of Dubuque after spending 76 years at 3400 Jackson St.

“Obviously, the company has been in Dubuque for a long time and many of our roots are here,” CEO Karel Czanderna said. “I don’t think many companies make a $12 million investment and start thinking about moving any time soon. Dubuque is the right time and the right place for making this investment.”
