Dyersville celebrated the success of its industrial park Friday and broke ground for future development. The 20 West Industrial Park sits on 224 acres on the west edge of Dyersville just south of Highway 20. Over the past few years, it has become to home to five companies and Dyersville Economic Development Director Jacque Rahe says they are now ready to expand further west.
Rahe says the success and growth during Phase One of the industrial park was much quicker than they anticipated.
Dardis, a company that provides professional communication services, is one of five companies who moved their businesses to the 20 West Industrial Center. President and CEO Greg Dardis is a Farley native who chose to locate his business close to home.
Digga North America, the first to build in Dyersville’s 20 West Industrial Park, is an Australian company that makes gearboxes for machinery attachments. President and CEO Suzie Wright says she’s grateful her company found its way from Australia to Dyersville, Iowa.
Rahe says the community considers itself fortunate that these companies have chosen to call Dyersville home.
Well over one-hundred people attended Friday’s celebration, which included open houses and guided factory tours.
