Menard Inc. was in need of a huge tract of land for a regional distribution and manufacturing center in 2007. The leadership recognized that people in Williams County worked hard, there was a superb transportation network, and county economic development leaders were eager to form partnerships. The total initial investment in the Menards facility was an estimated $74 million.
The most recent expansion in 2017 and 2018 included a $28 million investment to build a production line to manufacture interior and exterior pre-hung doors. The project is expected to add 85-90 new jobs at the Holiday City location, adding more than $3 million of new payroll which will make Menards Distribution Center the largest employer in Williams County.
