Modern Manufacturing for the Global Market

South Dakota manufacturers supply the world with a variety of high-quality products, including medical goods and devices, cutting-edge electronic display boards, revolutionary polymer films, and even firetrucks. Our population clocks in among the hardest workers in the nation, benefitting our manufacturers through increased productivity and a higher ROI than most states. Factor in South Dakota’s central location, a U.S. Port of Entry, and major transportation corridors, including 2 interstates, and our manufacturers can deliver across the globe.
