Over the last few weeks, several Perry businesses have made strides in expanding their footprint in the City.
The Perry industrial park located along Highway 141 has seen not one but two businesses make exciting announcements. Percival Scientific received $2 million in funding for an expansion project through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant (REDLG) program. The project will consist of expanding their Perry facility. The project is expected to add 12 new jobs.
TC and B Wearables announced they’re going to be moving their business to the Perry industrial park as they purchased a 30,000-square-foot speculative warehouse shell. As those two businesses made grand announcements, another Perry staple completed their expansion project. Earlier this month Harland Ace Hardware officially transitioned their operations to the location next to the Hy-Vee at the intersection of Highway 141 and 1st Street. There are plans for Dollar Tree to move across the street into where Ace Hardware was previously located. However, that move isn’t expected to occur until next year.
