October 2 – 6, 2017 is South Dakota Manufacturing Week!

The Sioux Falls Development Foundation, Lincoln County Economic Development Association and the Minnehaha County Economic Development Association join in celebrating, saluting and thanking our area manufacturers and their 13,000+ employees.


Local area and state-wide manufacturers and processors play a vital role in our region and our state's economic health and vitality. The types of products produced in our metro area are as diverse as the companies that call our corporate community home. From the small operation to the major employer with 3,000+ team members; the new entrepreneurial start-ups to the decades old community pillars; fire trucks to fuel, pet food to plastic parts, computer components to cabinets, biologics to backhoes.


The manufacturing industry is a vitally important segment within our region and state; providing primary jobs and an immense economic impact.  We thank each and every manufacturing and processing company for their contribution to our region.  We are proud to count you as members of our corporate community!
