Custom manufacturer Protolabs Inc. will invest $29.9 million to expand to a new site in Brooklyn Park. The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is supporting the project with an $850,000 grant from the Job Creation Fund. The company will receive the funding once it has met investment and hiring goals.
Senator John Hoffman (DFL- Champlin) released the following statement in response:
“Protolabs’ expansion in Brooklyn Park is an example of what we can accomplish when the private and public sectors work together in the best interests of the community, “ said Sen. Hoffman. “One of my first votes in 2013 as a new state senator was to appropriate public dollars for the Job Creation Fund, which is helping to finance this local jobs project. Protolabs’ expansion will result in the creation of more than 100 jobs and more stability for Brooklyn Park’s finances. Minnesota manufacturing is critical to our shared success and I am grateful for Protolabs’ decision to expand in Brooklyn Park.”
