Preston and Spring Valley Manufacturers Recognized

Article by: Cathy Enerson

The EDA in Preston recognized eight area manufacturers and processors. The event was held Monday October 20th at City Hall in Preston. One of those manufactures, Bluff Country Manufacturing was in the process of building and expanding. Later that day six manufacturers from the Spring Valley area were also recognized at a ceremony at Spring Valley’s City Hall. Four of the manufactures, AMD, SATA, Kappers, and Tracker Industries have each expanded their facilities in 2014. These two events kicked off the State wide manufacturers week. During the events local manufacturers were informed about DEED’s new programs which were developed with the intention of replacing Job Z, a long standing program, which will sunset in 2015. Jennifer Hauser from DEED was in attendance at both events to present these vitally important area manufactures with certificates from Minnesota’s Governor, Mark Dayton.
