Yankton’s Manitou Location Expanding

Manitou Group has announced plans to invest eighty million dollars in its two North American manufacturing facilities in Yankton and Madison, South Dakota.

This investment is to be spent on the extension of both sites, an innovation drive, and the development of new ranges. This multi-million-dollar plan will initially finance the extension of the production facilities of Yankton and Madison and subsequently fund the modernization of industrial equipment.

Elisabeth Ausimour, President of the Product Division for Manitou, says the Yankton facility will grow its surface area by more than 65,000 square feet.

To support its development, the group intends to hire fifty more people at its Yankton site between now and next year, in job categories such as welders, assemblers, maintenance technicians, and purchasers.

Manitou Group will draw on an attractive employer brand and particularly advantageous benefits packages to attract skills in a state with one of the lowest unemployment rates in the US.
