Shovel-Ready with Room to Grow

Businesses ready to expand and build should consider the expanding industrial park in Willmar, Minnesota. It recently gained shovel-ready status, a certification by the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), that means the planning, zoning, surveys, title work, environmental studies, soils analysis, and infrastructure engineering are complete to start construction.

The park is just two miles from the Willmar airport, which has available hangar space and a modern terminal building. It is also a transportation hub with north/south connections via US Highway 71 and MN Highway 23 and east/west connections via US Highway 12. Plans to add direct rail car access to the Willmar Industrial Park were also recently announced. The site is close to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe switching yard connecting Chicago to the Pacific coastal states. Over 30 companies already call Willmar Industrial Park home, including Jennie-O Turkey Store, Willmar Poultry Company, Mills Parts Center, Willmar Electric Service, RELCO, Magnum Trucking, Dooley’s Petroleum and Chappell Central.
