Gage Brothers To Build $40 Million Plant In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A manufacturer with deep roots in Sioux Falls says it will begin construction on a $40 million plant this summer.
Gage Brothers says the new 210,000-square-foot facility will consolidate machinery and employees in one location. Current operations are scattered between 16 buildings.
The precast concrete producer has been at the same location in Sioux Falls since its founding in 1915. Gage Brothers president Tom Kelley says business growth has exceeded its existing capacity to the point where the company has turned away work. Once completed in January 2019, the new facility is expected to increase Gage Brothers’ manufacturing capacity by 60 percent.
Currently 45 percent of production employees work outdoors. About 95 percent of production workers will be indoors at the new plant.
