Digi-Key Announces Construction Schedule


Digi-Key this week announced construction scheduled to begin next month on it’s new, four story Product Distribution Center, a huge expansion of the current facility in Thief River Falls.

The center will provide 2.2 million in additional square feet on a one million square foot “footprint”, an investment of more than $300 million that is expected to add another $500 million in economic output.

The expansion is driven by growth world-wide, 26% last year, with sales topping $2.3 billion.

Vice President of Administration, Rick Trontvet, said yesterday they are already exceeding projected employment – 100 jobs per year over the next 10 years. Over and above that, the construction project alone is expected to bring another 250 to 300 workers into the Region.
