Story City EDC Industry Tour deemed a success!
The Story City EDC’s 5th Industry Tour was a wonderful success as they toured Lumber Specialties and the Story City Locker last Tuesday (Oct. 7). With over 65 in attendance it was one of the group’s most successful tours to date.
The tour of Lumber Specialties included a brief history of the Dyersville-based company, and the projects that are manufactured from the Story City location. With the responsibilities of designing and building trusses that can exceed 100 feet long, it’s no wonder the local plant is busy with 70 employees, three lines, and two shifts!
The tour also made a stop at the Story City Locker. What amazing growth the new company has seen within their first year of operating a wonderful small business. The group heard information about the locker’s business model, plus a full walk-through of the facility, from where the animals first arrive to where the finished products are finally presented to the public in the form of various cuts of meats, sausages, and other wonderful products. The tour wrapped up back at the Story City Community Center, where snacks and drinks were served. It was an enjoyable evening to have been able to show off what Story City has to offer.
