Spain-Based Energy Component Manufacturer Opening Facility in Iowa

Elevadores Goian, a manufacturer of lift equipment for the wind turbine industry, will locate its first North American facility in Ankeny, Iowa, according to Ankeny city officials. The company plans to refurbish an existing 16,000-square-foot building for use as an office, service, and manufacturing facility, and will hire 12 employees initially. "Goian is confident that our decision to place our first North American facility in the Des Moines area will be an excellent investment," says Inaki Sancho, general manager of Goian North America LLC, the company formed for the project. "We have easy access to the suppliers, customers, and work force that will grow our company well into the future." The Spain-based company had considered sites in five other states before choosing the Iowa location. No information about financial incentives was released.
