A post and beam kit manufacturing company from Elk Point, South Dakota announced its move to Fremont on Monday.
Legacy Post & Beam specializes in kits for barns, houses, pavilions, sheds, and other structures and is currently in the process of relocating its office and manufacturing facility from Elk Point to a new, larger facility on Morningside Road in Fremont.
The company’s new 13,000 square foot facility is currently under construction and sits on the north side of Morningside road to the west of Fremont Contract Carriers and Eagle Distributing Company.
According to Legacy General Manager Brian Wiese, the move was necessitated due to the growth of the company over the last few years.
“As our reputation for excellence has spread and demand for post and beam construction has risen, we have been fortunate to experience significant growth,” Wiese said in a released statement. “Our new office and manufacturing space offers a more efficient layout for post and beam construction. We also have ample room for continued growth, which was important to us as we poised ourselves for the future.”
Legacy’s new facility includes covered wood storage space that will allow for increased inventory, which will allow faster production time. It will also help Legacy better cater to walk-in material sales, according to information released by the company.
Legacy Chief Operating Officer Tim Norris said the company plans to start carrying more specialty items such as mantels, live edge beams, and custom furniture pieces.
He said the building's close proximity to Highway 275 and the Omaha-metro area will also benefit customers and employees.
“The move emphasizes our commitment to both our customers and our employees. We pride ourselves on offering the highest quality post and beam kits on the market. The move to Fremont will provide synergies in adding talented staff to our team, as well as within our supply chain to help us deliver the level of satisfaction our customers have come to expect,” he said in a released statement.
Information released by the company says the new facility will be operational in the spring of 2018, and according to Legacy’s Amanda Wiese the company plans to be moved by April 1.
Wiese also said that the company will bring with them eight employees to the area and plans to add four more employees within six months of opening.
Wiese also said that Legacy will have immediate openings for skilled carpenters and CAD professionals, and that qualified candidates are encouraged to reach out to the company by emailing them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
