Rosenbauer America broke ground on its new 24,000 square foot expansion in November of 2007. Now, after six months, the new offices, fabrication areas and fire truck showroom are complete.
To celebrate, Rosenbauer America hosted an open house to allow surrounding community members to take a first look at the new facilities.
“It is amazing how much this place has changed,” said Bob Carlson, local Lyons resident and neighbor to the Rosenbauer America plant. “I remember when there were just two or three buildings. Now there are six!”
Harold and Helen Boer started the company in the mid-1970s as a welding and vehicle refurbishment business and were all smiles when they cut the ribbon for their latest expansion.
“We look forward to having many more ribbon cuttings as our business continues to grow,” said Harold Boer, CEO of Rosenbauer America. “And we are very thankful to have the community’s and South Dakota’s support as we do so.”
