ADF Chooses Great Falls Montana for Expansion

In 2012, ADF, a Quebec based steel fabrication company, began a multi-state and province search for locations to build their western facility – a 100,000 square foot, $40 million project. Their top risk factors in choosing a location were:

  •  Speed of execution
  •  Workforce
  •  Financing and Incentives
  •  Support through the process

During the site selection process, Great Falls, Montana, rose to the top of the list. We knew it was imperative to the speed of execution that we fully understand their needs.

We sent a team that included City representatives, Great Falls Montana Economic Development specialists, the Great Falls College MSU Industrial Tech Trades and Welding Program Director, and others to ADF. There, we spent a few days on the shop floor meeting with ADF workers, managers, and executives to gain a comprehensive understanding of the company’s immediate and long-term needs.

Working with ADF, we were able to secure a $7.3 million incentive package and an additional $4 million in low-cost financing to aid in their expansion.
