The Black Hills Industrial Center will be the first of its kind in western South Dakota. Located along the Heartland Express south of Catron Boulevard, the Black Hills Industrial Center will be home to companies in the technology and value-added agriculture industries and will provide more than 2,000 professional, high-paying jobs. The goal of the industrial park is to make Rapid City’s economy more multi-dimensional by building upon the manufacturing sector and to improve the local wage scale.
The Industrial Center is strategically positioned along the Heartland Express near Rapid City Regional Airport and I-90 to give companies easy transportation access. Rail lines are extended to provide rail service to most sites and businesses in the center. Being at the confluence of two of the nation’s major power grids, the Industrial Center is ideal for operations that require consistent, reliable access to electricity.
The Industrial Center broke ground September 2022.
