Wells Concrete was selected to provide structural precast product for the Bomgaars Supply warehouse expansion project in Sioux City IA with KC Engineers (Sioux City, IA) and WA Klinger (Sioux City, IA). The expansion project will add 150,000 square feet to the existing 200,000 square feet with a 43,000 square foot mezzanine space designed with double tee floor, beams and columns that Wells Concrete will produce and install. Construction is expected to begin this spring with completion slated for a year later.
The expansion project is triggered by rapid growth in recent years with a footprint that now expands beyond Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota into Minnesota, Colorado and Wyoming. Bomgaars warehouse in Sioux City is expected to keep pace with the growing demands of 66 stores in a six-state footprint. After considering a move to other sites in neighboring states Bomgaars opted to stay in their home city of Sioux City, IA where the fourth-generation family business was started in 1944. With employees over the 1,500 mark Bomgaars plans to add 15 new positions with 177 local jobs with this expansion.
