The state of manufacturing and the increased need for personnel in the industrial sector of Southern MN is making the news. As published in the Owatonna People’s Press, Kim Hyatt’s article, “Minnesota’s manufacturers are confident in economy, wish for more workers,” explores the current need for skilled manufacturers in Southern Minnesota.
In this article, Hyatt discusses a recent presentation by Bob Kill, president and CEO of Enterprise Minnesota, as he presented findings from the 2015 State of Manufacturing survey. The survey results indicated an all time high confidence level among manufacturers, at the same time these same manufacturers are finding it a challenge to fill positions. As a result, many companies are working with area schools and technical colleges, opening their doors, and educating the next generation about the abundant opportunities available in this field.
Our team at APPRO and CERRON hears these same sentiments on a daily basis from the clients we work with. We would strongly encourage students in high school to explore the opportunities available in this industry. As you drive through the industrial park where our offices are located, you see sign after sign of industrial companies seeking help. The opportunities and the variety of careers are abundant!

Manufacturing Construction Updates: A Current Perspective on U.S. Manufacturing & Industrial Facilities
“Manufacturing is coming back to the U.S., both in terms of jobs and demand for industrial facilities,” according to Robert Carr, in his recent article, “Manufacturing Sector Benefits from Hi-Tech Efficiency” in the National Real Estate Investor (NREI). This is an insightful article for both the manufacturing industry and for our organizations – APPRO Development, Inc. and CERRON Commercial Properties, LLC, as a commercial building services providers to the manufacturing industry. Some of Carr’s key points are:
- We will see a larger number of manufacturing facilities in the years ahead
- Larger, aged manufacturing facilities have [and will continue to] become functionally obsolete
- [Many of] the new properties will…consist of expansions by current companies
- The U.S. remains a manufacturing powerhouse today and that the trends we are seeing take shape in the market decidedly favor manufacturing
- The manufacturing sector is actually above pre-recession volume (in terms of dollar value before and after the recession for the value of construction)
We are working with many business owners – in manufacturing, and other industries – who account for this improvement. Whether the need is to build a new facility, to add on to an existing site, or simply remodel, we help walk our clients through all their options. They have the information they need to then make the decisions to bring continued success to their organization. If you have considered a change in your building (manufacturing, industrial or other commercial building type), and want more information on current commercial construction trends, please give our team a call. We can help walk you through the process. Our process starts with a simple phone call or email, and we can guide you from there. No pressure, no stress – we are here to help! Give us a call today at 952-469-9444.

Imperial Plastics Industrial Production Facility Construction Nears Completion in Mankato, MN
The newest industrial production facility construction by APPRO Development, Inc. is nearing completion. A Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) has been issued on the Imperial Plastics Mankato project (click link to see more project photos). Owner furnished equipment installation (e.g. process piping, racking and cranes) is well under way and the final interior finishes are being installed which include: carpet, paint, and ceramic tile, to name a few.
It does not seem all that long ago that APPRO Development, along with representatives from near and far, came to celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony for Imperial Plastics as they kicked off construction of this 124,000 SF (approximate) manufacturing/production facility. Although, it was a whole lot sunnier and warmer back in August than it is now as we near the end of January 2014, the time has gone by rather quickly and we find ourselves nearing the time to turn over the keys. APPRO Development is targeting the end of February to turn the building over to the owner.
Do you have an existing building in the Mankato area and wondered, “what can I do with an existing warehouse building?” You may need some design ideas or a free market analyis. Or, possibly a new building is in your future, as you address your company needs. It is never too early to contact our professional team. Our no obligation initial consultation may provide just the answers you have been looking for. These were the first steps in working with this client and we would be happy to help you find a solution for your business, too. Contact our knowledgeable, friendly team today.
Solar Energy – The Pros and Cons of Alternate Materials in Commercial Construction
A Solar Energy incentive program (Made in Minnesota Solar Incentive Program) for both residential and commercial buildings recently came to our attention. Upon being asked our opinion of the program, a lively discussion ensued in the offices of APPRO and CERRON surrounding the use of environmentally friendly materials and sustainable energy resources.
APPRO & CERRON both work diligently to provide the best product at the best price for each of our customers – whether building new or remodeling existing. We work a lot in our neighborhood here in the Airlake Industrial Park which is comprised of many small businesses focused on the industrial and manufacturing industries.
Over the past few years, APPRO has brought forward energy efficient design ideas and alternate material types and equipment that enhance energy savings in response to public sentiment for more environmentally friendly buildings. We have found the LEED certification process cumbersome and not as cost effective as we may be lead to believe initially. We have strived to find a balance between energy savings that provide payback to you as a building owner and ways that reduce the initial start-up costs of construction.
In our experience, as we competitively bid out new projects, we have found that some “green” or LEED certified materials make a lot of sense to incorporate in to a project to cut costs (e.g. insulation). While the use of other materials might only make sense to fulfill a PR objective or to enhance marketability, the incorporation of those materials may not make sense from a business perspective.
As a Minnesota based design-build general contractor, APPRO is aware of the solar incentives available and are more than happy to discuss the pros and cons of working this into your next building project. We create property solutions for you and with you – how may we help you today?
