Stout Technology and Business Park Owners

The owner mix in the Stout Technology and Business Park (STBP) includes commercial businesses upfront – business, professional, medical, financial and educational services – with industrial businesses behind – light industrial, clean manufacturing, high-tech businesses and distribution. Most are small operations with light shipping and receiving traffic. STBP owners
such as Andersen Corporation, Phillips Plastics and Legacy Chocolates join Menomonie’s growing list of progressive international corporations including 3M, ConAgra Foods and Cardinal FG. Dunn County is home to many other plastics, agribusiness and logistics cluster employers.

Covenants established by the STBP Corporation are in place to create an attractive research and technology park for the benefit of the university, community and park occupants. Business and industry desiring to locate in the STBP must be approved by the board of directors.
