North Dakota wind tower manufacturer shuts down
WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Wind tower manufacturer DMI Industries Inc. in North Dakota has shut down.
West Fargo's economic development director says the future of the DMI plant isn't known because officials with the Texas-based company that recently bought the plant aren't immediately revealing their plans.
Parent Otter Tail Corp. is selling DMI plants in West Fargo; Tulsa, Okla.; and Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada, to Dallas-based Trinity Industries for $20 million. The deal and the pending shutdown were announced earlier this fall.
The West Fargo DMI plant that closed employed 216 people.
