Ridley president and CEO Steve VanRoekel and local Mankato officials on December 18 cut the ribbon on the feed company’s new headquarters in downtown Mankato, Minnesota.
The Ridley Tower, located on the corner of Riverfront Drive and Cherry Street, comprises five floors, totaling 50,000 square feet. The new facility has more usable area than its former location at 424 North Riverfront Drive and provides improved space for training and conferences. Employees and visitors will have easy access to an adjacent 360-stall parking ramp managed by the City of Mankato.
“We appreciate the partnership and commitment Ridley has given to the Great Mankato Area and are proud to have another great anchor tenant with the addition of the Ridley Corporate Headquarters,” said Kyle Smith, The Tailwind Group principal.
Ridley’s headquarters will be populated by nearly 100 office staff, including the senior management of the company’s three divisions and the support staff for its manufacturing and sales operations.
“This office space allows for collaboration between the three divisions, which will allow us to better service our customer’s needs,” said VanRoekel.
