Purchasing the Campus

In 2006, the 100-acre property, which is now called the MinnWest Technology Campus, was purchased from the state of Minnesota by this family of private technology and bioscience businesses in Willmar. The transaction was made possible by a groundbreaking collaboration between city, county and state government entities.
