NORTH STAR SHEETS' SUCCESS & EXPANSION
North Star Sheets’ 168,000-square-foot Southeast Industrial Park facility is situated on 16 acres of land and features office, manufacturing and storage space, as well as state-of-the-art machinery. The award-winning project was specifically designed to allow train cars to enter the building to optimize and expedite workflow. Opus Development Company’s site plans were city-approved in less than 60 days, and the facility was fully operational less than a year after breaking ground.
In June 2021, the city of Cottage Grove approved plans for North Star Sheets to construct a 35,600-square-foot addition and increase its total footprint by 4.5 acres of land. Along with the planned building expansion, North Star Sheets will use the newly acquired acreage to increase capacity and to add another rail spur to enhance its rail service infrastructure.
