About REDI

The City of Robins created the Robins Economic Development Initiative (REDI) in 2013 to develop business and residential growth and to promote Robins, Iowa. It began as an exploratory committee of the City of Robins City Council in 2012 and quickly gathered the momentum to become a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization.


REDI focuses on providing services to parties interested in starting new businesses or relocating existing businesses to Robins. REDI welcomes inquiries from commercial, construction, retail and light industrial entities.
