Searching for Manufacturing Employees in South Dakota

From the Sioux Falls Argus Leader:

Officials from Angus-Palm, a Watertown-based maker of cabs and cab components, know the challenges of growing its work force. Since the first of the year, the company has added 50 employees at its Watertown plant, giving it about 450 workers, said Gary Stone, a company vice-president of operations.

But Clark Breitag, Angus-Palm human resources director, said the company has had to step up attendance at job and career shows to get enough workers.

Breitag’s comments came during a manufacturing workforce summit sponsored by the South Dakota Department of Labor and the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce. Gov. Mike Rounds spoke, as did the Manufacturing Institute’s Peggy Walton.
