MDS Manufacturing Co., Inc. is expanding in Parkston.
MDS manufactures skid steer, tractor loader, telehandler and wheel loader attachments for major brands of equipment in North America.
MDS plans to add 15 to 20 jobs thanks to a REDI Fund Loan from the Governor's Office of Economic Development. It has purchased new equipment to fill the demand.
“Agriculture is South Dakota’s number one industry. It generates economic activity and employs many South Dakotans,” Governor Dennis Daugaard said. “With an industry that large, we need companies like MDS who serve the agricultural community. I hope this loan will help MDS to expand and create more jobs so they can continue to produce the things our farmers and ranchers need.”
The family owned company started in 1976.
