STURGIS, SD (8/1/2016) – Enviro Shield Products, Inc., a manufacturer of spill containment products for the oil industry, is relocating from Williston, ND to the Sturgis Industrial Park.
Shane Herman, CEO/President of Enviro Shield Products, has developed a new spill containment product that can be expanded into other markets, including the motorcycle industry. Shane plans to be fully operational in his 7,000 sq. ft. building in Sturgis in September. Two employees will relocate from Williston and another three will be hired locally. When at capacity, it is expected to have 12 full time employees.
Shane states, “Relocating to Sturgis with our new motorcycle product line is a natural move. Plus, our oil field containment contracts in the Bakken, Midcontinent and Rocky Mountains can be served more strategically from Sturgis. A business move like this is not something you do every day. The Sturgis Economic Development Corp and the State of South Dakota have been great resources in our relocation process.”
Pat Kurtenbach, President of the Sturgis Economic Development Corp, adds, “In addition to the motorcycle network in Sturgis, Shane chose the Sturgis Industrial Park because there was an available building ready for him to occupy. This allows him to be manufacturing in Sturgis at least nine months faster than if he constructed a new building. Enviro Shield’s ability to expand their product line beyond its original oil field application is a testament to their innovative capacity. We welcome Enviro Shield Products to Sturgis.”
