To accommodate its significant growth, Horsch Anderson, LLC, will break ground on a new manufacturing facility in Mapleton, N.D., on Saturday, August 25, 2012. It will be located on a 30-acre lot north of Interstate 94 near the Mapleton exit. The initial stage of the project will include a 100,000-square-foot building, which will contain offices and a large production area. Within five years Horsch Anderson projects to employ 80 people or more at the facility.
Horsch Anderson is engaged in the production and distribution of world-renowned HORSCH-branded products in North America, including premium agricultural seeding and tillage products. Horsch Anderson is a collaborative effort comprised of Horsch Maschinen, GmbH, of Schwandorf, Germany; Harper Industries Inc. of Harper, Kansas; and Anderson Industries of Aberdeen, South Dakota.
“The new facility will add capacity to our current plant in Andover, South Dakota,” said Kory Anderson, president and owner of Anderson Industries. “We’re excited to become a major employer and good corporate citizen for the city of Mapleton.”
