Pipeline manufacturer adding jobs in South Dakota

Posted: Updated:

BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. (AP) - A Texas-based pipeline manufacturer is expanding its operations to South Dakota.

Pipeline Plastics is adding a plant in Belle Fourche that is expected to create 25 to 40 full-time jobs to the area. The plant is expected to open next year and provide high-density polyethylene pipe to the Bakken Formation in North Dakota and Montana. The company already produces the pipe at a plant in Decatur, Texas.

Belle Fourche Mayor Gary Hendrickson says in a news release that he is excited to see the economic benefit the plant will bring to the area.
