Northern Plains Rail Services is looking to develop a rail car servicing and repair facility near Grand Forks. The company is eyeing a 23-thousand square foot rail car shop on 283 acres of industrial zoned land -- about six miles north of Grand Forks near I-29.
Founded in 1997 the company employs around 200 workers throughout the region. Company President Jess Chalich says the expansion will create 24 additional jobs.
N-P-R operates a 350-mile regional network across Minnesota and North Dakota. A similar facility is located in Erskine (MN). The company…headquartered in Fordville (ND)…announced the expansion this week.
