Grand Opening In Yankton
YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - A Yankton company that makes filters for homes, factories and automobiles is celebrating the grand opening of a 110,000-square-foot expansion.
Baldwin Filters president Sam Ferrise says the added space will help the company meet the supply demands from continued global growth.
Baldwin Filters employs more than 180 workers at its Yankton facility. It's part of Franklin, Tenn.-based Clarcor Inc.
The company obtained a Revolving Economic Development Initiative loan and a Workforce Development Grant through the Governor's Office of Economic Development for the expansion.
The company hosted officials at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he's pleased that a company with such a strong international presence decided to double its footprint in South Dakota.
