For companies looking to grow and expand their business, locating in a city and state with a strong workforce and a favorable business climate are top considerations.

In a ranking by Site Selector Magazine, Sioux Falls is the Top Metro Per Capita with a population of 200,000 – 1 million in the country for corporate site selection projects.

“Projects include a 40,000-sq.-ft. expansion by Dakota Digital; a $45 million investment at Smithfield Foods’ pork processing plant; a 50-job commitment by global health care company Owens & Minor to an integrated service center it will share with Avera Health; a $20.4 million service center expansion by Xcel Energy; an investment of $5.1 million by Dakota Fluid Power; a $30 million corporate headquarters, fabrication facility and maintenance facility from Maguire Iron; a $6 million office and warehouse investment from vintage video game reseller CaveGamers; and a $25 million investment by FedEx Freight at a 43-acre site in Foundation Park, which since its founding in 2015 has sold nearly 500 of its more than 950 acres to companies creating thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in new tax base,” the article releasing the ranking says.
