BRANDON, S.D. (AP) – Gov. Dennis Daugaard is scheduled to speak in Brandon Tuesday morning at an announcement from Canada-based wind tower manufacturer Marmen Inc.

The company earlier this year said that it plans to hire 200 people at a 150,000 square-foot plant in Brandon originally built by a wind tower manufacturing firm that never ended up using it. Marmen says it will be the company’s first U.S. facility.

The Brandon building sits on 41 acres in the Corson Development Park on the north side of Interstate 90.   It was built in 2010 for Tower Tech Systems, a division of Broadwind Energy, but operations were put on hold because the company could not secure enough contracts.

The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the golf course clubhouse.
