Dallas-based Trinity Industries, Inc. has reopened a West Fargo, N.D. plant to build storage containers for propane, anhydrous ammonia or water, the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead reports. The factory has about 40 workers and company officials plan to add more than 25 employees in the coming months.
Trinity bought DMI Industries, a maker of wind turbines, from Fergus Falls, Minn.-based Otter Tail Corp. for $20 million last September, according to a news release. The deal included plants in West Fargo, Tulsa, Okla., and Ontario, Canada.
The West Fargo factory had 216 workers before the sale. DMI closed the wind turbine plant in early November.
