Precision Tank and Equipment has chosen Humboldt for a new 31,500 square foot manufacturing plant, which will be their third plant location.
Based out of Virginia, IL, the company also has manufacturing facilities in Athens, IL, and Ligonier, IN.
“We deal primarily with the ag industry and wanted to extend our geographic footprint to the western corn belt. Our Indiana plant is about 350 miles away from our headquarters and it is about 370 miles from the headquarters to Humboldt,” David Hemming, President and CEO of Precision Tank, said. “Humboldt has been very good to work with, from Alissa Reinholdt and Steve Long to Walter Jensen. They were very accommodating and put a nice package together to help us locate in Humboldt.”
Groundbreaking was held in Humboldt on Wednesday, Aug. 28, at the Northwest Industrial Park. Sande Construction of Humboldt was selected from several firms as the general contractor on the project. The company expects to employ 14 people initially at the Humboldt location.
