300 New Jobs for Great Falls Montana
According to reporting by the Great Falls Tribune, a Canadian company may bring 300 high-paying jobs to Great Falls. A tenative deal was struck Wednesday according to Brett Doney, president of the Great Falls Development Authority.
Who it is is still a secret. Doney declined to name the company since it is publicly traded and still needs to consult with its shareholders about the deal. The company is said to be involved in the construction industry and the overall project to be at least $15 million.
The plant will be located north of Great Falls on U.S. 87 near the Malteurop North America malt plant and construction is expected to start in the spring.
Although not finalized, this is great news for the Great Falls area and the local real estate market, even though it will probably make an already tight rental market even tighter. It could also explain the increased number of calls from Canadians inquiring about homes in the area.
