Why Lukjan chose Sidney

Lukjan Metal Products is going to be moving into the former Commscope building on Greenwood Road in Sidney creating jobs this summer. According to Starr Lehl, Business Development Consultant for the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, the company was given a one million dollar grant from the state, and an additional $75,000 to help train employees. Starr announced this information at a “State of Sidney” presentation put on by the Cheyenne County Chamber.

Director of Midwest Region Herb Gibson found the location by searching for some specific qualities desired in a facility in the Location One Information System.

When Gibson visited Sidney, he went to a grocery story and asked an older lady what the best thing about Sidney is, the woman responded, “we have a great workforce.” When Gibson asked another Sidney citizen the same question, he responded with, “When I moved here from another town, I felt very welcomed.” Gibson said that after hearing those two responses, he was sold.

With extra room still available in the facility, Lukjan is looking at potentially bringing in more suppliers to operate out of the building.
