  • Alleviant, LLC on their Expansion to Vermillion Alleviant, LLC on their Expansion to Vermillion Alleviant, LLC, part of Navigant Healthcare, expanded its business to include Vermillion, SD in July 2012. Previously, the billing and collections firm had locations in both Plankinton and Mitchell, and the expansion to Vermillion positioned the company to be able to respond to consumer need and grow its current business by about 100 employees.

    “Vermillion has been a very successful choice for Alleviant expansion. Working in concert with state support, Vermillion was on our short list of communities to explore based on location and access to labor pools, and once we began to experience the teamwork and can-do attitudes of Steve Howe and the VCDC, it became an easy choice for us. We were always committed to continued growth of our business in the state of South Dakota, but the team from the VCDC only strengthened that commitment. In addition to the great job they did to put together a winning package for us to expand in Vermillion, they continued to assist well into our time in Vermillion, acting as a great partner, coach and conduit to new and creative ways to make sure that the community and the labor force knew of us and the opportunities we had for employment. We could not have done it without the VCDC.”

Polaris chose the college community as a warehouse location because of its available labor force and central location to the company's customer base.

  • MASABA Inc. on relocating to Vermillion MASABA Inc. on relocating to Vermillion Masaba Inc., a manufacturer of mining equipment, relocated its operation from Akron, Iowa to Vermillion, S.D. a move which has created over 80 jobs in the past three years. Masaba originally constructed a 100,000 sq. ft. facility and has recently added an additional 60,000 sq. ft.

    "The availability of a labor market was a key issue for our company, and the local and state support to pull together as a team effort in Masaba's relocation has made the difference in our decision to move to Vermillion SD," says CEO Jerad Higman. The states comprehensive financing package along with the local tax incentives and job creation programs sealed the deal when discussing other state alternatives. On a personal note, "the University of South Dakota's educational, cultural and athletic programs were a huge attraction to my family, as well as to the families of our employees."
