MASABA Breaks Ground for New Facility in South Dakota

MASABA Inc. announced ground-breaking for a new state-of-the-art steel fabrication facility in Vermillion, S.D. Located adjacent to its existing 211,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, the new building will create an additional 125,000 sq. ft. of fabrication space and more than 20,000 sq. ft. of office space. The facility will house more than $15 million in new steel fabrication equipment and will be fully operational by May 2025.

According to Jerad Higman, MASABA founder and CEO, “MASABA continues to invest in our Team, the industries we serve, our local economy and America. 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.”

“Our investment in the new facility will streamline our operations, expand manufacturing space and give us the ability to become more vertically integrated,” Higman continued. “We will be able to repurpose our current steel fabrication area into additional weld and assembly bays, which will allow us to meet the increased customer demand we have seen since 2020. The expansion positions us well for future growth. The City of Vermillion and the State of South Dakota have been great partners and supporters of this project.”

MASABA Inc. is a privately held company that designs, engineers, and manufactures bulk material handling equipment for the aggregate, mining, recycling, agricultural, marine and related industries. The company specializes in Magnum telescoping conveyors; truck unloaders; portable and stationary conveyors; crushing, screening, and wash plants; as well as with custom solutions. Having its own mechanical, hydraulic and electrical divisions allows MASABA to control all aspects of the manufacturing process and quality in-house.
