Several industrial development projects are underway in Coon Rapids.
- JSN Properties has begun site work and received building permits for a new 85,000 square foot multi-tenant office/warehouse building along Highway 10, adjacent to the USF Holland freight terminal at 11201 Xeon Street.
- Coon Rapids-based Steinwall, Inc. has purchased a 145,000 square foot warehouse at 11225 Xeon Street, which will allow the plastics manufacturer to expand. The facility replaced a smaller warehouse in Brooklyn Park. Steinwall produces molded parts for a variety of industries, including agriculture, automotive, and computer technology. The new warehouse will house about 30 employees and allow for storage and secondary manufacturing operations within close proximity to Steinwall’s main manufacturing facility in Coon Rapids.
- Green Bay Packaging, which produces corrugated cardboard shipping containers and displays, is constructing more than 100,000 square feet of additional space at its facility on 87th Lane NW. The building was first built in 1996. The new additions include: 44,215 square feet of warehouse space, more than doubling the existing capacity; 47,770 square feet to expand production with additional assembly lines and material staging; 6,490 square feet for new restrooms, training room and larger employee break/lunch room expansion; and 2,220 square feet for office, meeting room and product design space. The additional capacity is needed to meet increased demand and anticipated sales growth once the company completes a new state-of-the-art paper mill in Wisconsin. Green Bay Packaging expects to add about 20 jobs in Coon Rapids upon completion of the expansion.
