Our largest local employer (approximately 200 employees) is Fey Industries. Fey Industries is a third generation locally owned and managed manufacturer of imprinted vinyl promotional products (3-ring binders, auto accessories, calendars, baby and beyond, stadium cushions, etc), media packaging for CD, DVD, and BlueRay discs, as well as custom thermoformed products (packaging for fishing lures, pill blisters, etc).

Edgerton has a vibrant business community. There are two grocery stores, two hardware stores, two car dealerships, several hair and beauty salons, two card and gift shops, a bakery, a shoe repair shop, and a meat market. Our main street businesses pride themselves in drawing customers from throughout the county and beyond.
In 2006 we opened a new medical clinic in Edgerton. A post office, bank, public library, weekly newspaper, eye care office, chiropractic clinic, and volunteer ambulance and fire department add to the services available in our community as well.
In addition to Fey Industries, we have two other manufacturers in town. Rustrap Manufacturing is a custom brass heat-sealing die and tooling company. Northstar Plastics designs and manufactures custom-built animal holding and display units, nebulizers, cat condos, and dog boxes. Edgebrook
Both high schools have won the Minnesota State Basketball Championship. In 2011 our Dutchmen football team became the 9-Man State Champions, and in 2013 the Southwest MN Christian High School Eagles boys basketball team took home the Class A Championship. Many people also still remember what happened in 1960: the year Edgerton won the state basketball championship when there were no classes or divisions based on school size.
