Construction Begins On Brandon, South Dakota, Sixth Industrial Park

Construction started on Rovang Industrial Park, an 80-acre development park with planned rail access, adjacent to the Brandon and Corson development parks and the I-90 interchange in Brandon, South Dakota.

“Brandon represents 10% of the acres in South Dakota’s Certified Ready Sites,” Stern said. “This community is committed to providing the land to grow our economy,” Scott Stern, Commissioner of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

In addition to being a South Dakota Certified Ready Site, Brandon has a history of adding new industrial development parks to meet the needs of expanding and relocating companies.

“This is Brandon’s sixth industrial development park,” said Dennis Olson, Vice President of the Brandon Development Foundation. “Since 1983, we’ve added significantly to available industrial land in Brandon and now we have 320 acres in our parks. During that time, we’ve added 1,400 new jobs and increased assessable property by nearly $60 million.”

Development of Phase 1 of the Rovang Industrial Park will begin this year, according to Nick Fosheim, executive director of the Minnehaha County Economic Development Association.

“Brandon has long understood that opportunities for growth often depend on available land,” Fosheim said. “The development parks adjacent to the new Rovang property have filled rapidly and there is demand for sites in the Brandon area. The Brandon Development Foundation is determined to do what it takes to keep their community growing.”
