Canada-based wind tower manufacturer Marmen will move into a 150,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Brandon, S.D., with plans to employ approximately 250 workers in 2014 when the facility is fully operational.

Marmen has been serving the U.S. wind market from its Quebec-based locations in Trois-Rivieres and Matane, which opened in 2005.

The Brandon location, Marmen's first in the U.S., will become operational in the last quarter of the year. The site was built in 2010 for Tower Tech Systems, a division of Broadwind Energy, but operations were put on hold.
