Dotson expansion in the works

AFS Corporate Member Dotson Iron Castings, which supplies precision parts for farm machinery, heavy trucks, industrial equipment and the construction industry and more, is planning a major expansion of its Mankato, Minnesota plant, adding new meeting rooms, break areas, locker rooms and a rooftop patio.

Recently featured in the city’s local newspaper, The Free Press, the company says its 7,800-square-foot addition will also offer a fresh, modern look to the public with a new glass front, decorative, multicolored metal panels and updated landscaping. In the summertime, thousands pass by the foundry, which is located near the city’s Riverfront Park and new amphitheater. 

Despite the current economic downturn, Dotson is hiring––and the new space, the company says, will add to its collection of recruiting tools.
