New Jobs Coming To Vermillion

April 7, 2012, 9:55 PM by Jon Berg

New Jobs Coming To Vermillion
VERMILLION, SD -

Although growth has been slow and steady, it appears there are good signs for the South Dakota economy. The town of Vermillion has seen a significant gain in new jobs. And now, a new business could bring more than 100 positions to the city by the end of the year.

The streets in downtown Vermillion may be relatively quiet, but excitement on the outskirts of the town is building up as new businesses are bringing new jobs to the town. Navigant will be moving into a building on the edge of town in the next month. The company provides consulting and office services for a variety of industries. The Vermillion location will be focusing on medical billing and coding.

"The medical services field is a relatively new industry group for them and they so far have three offices, the third being here in Vermillion, they have two others in South Dakota one in Mitchell and one in Plankinton," Steve Howe, Executive Director of Vermillion Area Chamber And Development Company.

Lately, the town of Vermillion has added more manufacturing jobs at both Masaba and Builders Choice, which have totalled more than 160 jobs in the past six months.

"Vermillion traditionally has been a college town you know with the service and retail sectors that serve the University, lately we've been adding more manufacturing type jobs in the community but now adding some back office positions really helps us round out our industry mix," Howe said.

And Navigant will bring between 50 and 60 jobs by the end of 2012, and add 70 more next year for a total of 120 jobs by the end of 2013.

"We're about 10,500 people so they're going to be a major employer within the community," Howe said.

And with the University of South Dakota offering a health administration degree, some of the course work they offer will be needed for Navigant employees.

"What that will also add to our industry mix and be able to help the university as they team up with potential jobs for newly graduates and interns," Paul Preister, President of Vermillion Economic and Development Board said.

Providing this South Dakota town an opportunity not only to attract college students, but to keep them there as future employees.

Navigant is expected to begin hiring at the beginning of May.
