Thirty new jobs coming to Webster, a side effect of strong ag economy

Webster Area Development Corporation was notified that 30 new positions are being created in the community.

Dakota Tube, headquartered in Watertown, is hiring full-time general production labor for both first and second shifts.

“Dakota Tube is at record-breaking levels, and the future looks solid straight through 2012 and well into 2013,” said Jack Steinbauer, owner. “These next couple of years will be exciting times for our company, and we need our Webster plant to be bigger to meet our future commitments. Our Webster employees are great people and we hope to find many more, just like them.”

“It’s great news when our local companies offer opportunities like this,” said Nick Fosheim, Webster Area Development Corporation executive director. “The addition of these jobs reinforces what we already believe – that Day County is a great place to do business.”

Dakota Tube makes hydraulic tubes for a variety of applications, including for manufacturers such as John Deere and Bobcat.

“The agricultural economy has been doing well, and we need to support that,” said owner Anna Steinbauer in an Aberdeen American News story.
