Farm, ranch and pet supplier, Miller Manufacturing, plans a $3 million expansion of its distribution center in Glencoe, Minnesota
. The company’s investment will involve property improvements at the company’s facility located in southern Minnesota’s McLeod County.
The manufacturer sells more than 900 farm, ranch and pet products in the United States, Canada and more than 30 other countries. “Our commitment to both community and American-made products is at the core of our Miller values,” said Dan Ferrise, CEO of Miller Manufacturing. “The DEED grant bolsters our opportunity for expansion in Glencoe and for remaining a steady source of jobs in the area.”
As an incentive
to assist with the expansion, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development
will award Miller $185,000 from the Minnesota Job Creation Fund
if the company meets its performance goals.
“If anyone still doubts that public-private partnerships can help businesses to expand and to create new jobs, they should look to Miller Manufacturing and the Minnesota Job Creation Fund,” said Governor Mark Dayton
. “I want to thank Miller Manufacturing for their important expansion, and for the additional good-paying jobs they will create for Minnesotans.”
“Miller Manufacturing supplies virtually every farm and equine store in the country and is widely known for new product development,” added DEED Commissioner Katie Clark Sieben
. “This is an innovative company that is growing and contributing to the economy of Glencoe and McLeod County.”
Glencoe Mayor Randy Wilson said, “The city of Glencoe is very excited about the continued investment by Miller Manufacturing in our community. Miller Manufacturing is a very important part of Glencoe’s civic community and has been a great partner since arriving here in 2005. The city of Glencoe was honored to be able to assist them in their application for job creation funds from DEED. We continue to support their expansions and investments into our community and look forward to many more opportunities to partner with Miller Manufacturing in the future.”
