Masaba, manufacturer of custom-designed bulk material handling systems and processing equipment, has broken ground on a new state-of-the-art steel fabrication facility in Vermillion, SD.

Located adjacent to its existing 211,000-sq.-ft manufacturing facility, the new building will add 125,000 sq. ft of fabrication space and more than 20,000 sq. ft of office space.

“Masaba continues to invest in our team, the industries we serve, our local economy, and America," said Jerad Higman, Masaba founder & CEO. "Masaba will be on the leading edge in steel processing and will continue to increase the bar on quality. This expansion will allow Masaba to centralize all processing equipment in one building and utilize automation to process all our plate and structural steel.”

Higman went on to say that the investment in the new facility will streamline operations, expand manufacturing space, and give them the ability to become more vertically integrated. The current steel fabrication area will be repurposed into additional weld and assembly bays, which will meet the increased customer demand.

The facility will house more than $15 million in new steel fabrication equipment and will be fully operational by May 2025.
