Last week, I met with officials from Friendship Homes and toured their facility in Montevideo. Friendship Homes specializes in the manufacturing of systems-built and pre-fabricated houses that are sold throughout North America. In addition to the Montevideo plant, Friendship Homes operates seven other plants throughout the state. In speaking with the plant manager and production team, I learned that they are planning an expansion before the end of the year. The additional jobs Friendship Homes creates will mean a great deal to West Central Minnesota. I would like to thank everyone from Friendship Homes for the opportunity to tour their facility and I look forward to working with them in the future.
