LM Glasfiber, the Danish manufacturer of wind turbines with a factory located right here in Grand Forks, is working on a deal to bring 130 more jobs to their local workforce. The company wants to expand into unused space in the Amazon.com building in the industrial park. You might remember that Amazon rearranged their local operations a while back by closing down their distribution center and expanding their call center (the changes resulted in a net increase of jobs). Amazon doesn't need so much empty space anymore and LM Glasfiber would like to takeover that unused space. Thus, LM Glasfiber wants to operate out of their existing facility and expand into the nearby Amazon building. A deal is being worked out with the city (which owns the Amazon building). The average starting wage at LM Glasfiber is $12...not amazing, but not shabby either. Great to see more employment opportunities opening up!
