Double Expansion in South Sioux City

Double Expansion in South Sioux City A $1.4 million investment allows Circle R Frame Aligners to expand into a new 11,000 square foot facility in South Sioux City allowing Side Dump Industries to remain in the 9,000 square foot building currently occupied by both companies, owned by Ralph and Oma Rogers. Side Dump Industries will add 20 employees and increase production to four trailers per day with the new $600,000 robotic machinery.

“The biggest reason for the expansion is losing orders because we cannot produce our Side Dump Trailers fast enough to keep up with the increased demand for our product,” said Side Dump Industries President Ralph Rogers. “We have always enjoyed being in South Sioux City and are proud to expand here.”

Circle R Frame Aligners, founded in 1972 and served electrically by the City of South Sioux City, will open their new 11,000 square foot building along U.S. Highway 77 this fall. Circle R sells truck equipment, heavy equipment, side dumps and trailers, and performs truck and trailer repair. The company expects to add 10 new jobs during the next five years.

“I am amazed by the innovative genius and hard work that Ralph Rogers and his family have displayed over the years. I am pleased with yet another expansion announced for South Sioux City and Siouxland, ” stated Bob Giese, mayor of South Sioux City.
