On top of the hill, adjacent to the Duluth International Airport, is a 300-acre section of land that has contributed to the growth of about 40 local businesses. This is the location of the Duluth Airpark, a light industrial and commercial park owned and developed by the Duluth Seaway Port Authority to promote entrepreneurial development.
The companies invested in the Duluth Airpark employ more than 800 people and serve diverse industries, from aerospace machining to construction and from medical systems supply to engineering. The Airpark is home to many longstanding local companies and has played a significant role in their success.
GPM, Inc. is proud to call this booming space home since the 1980s. Read the story in the 2018-19 Winter edition of the North Star Port brought to you by the Duluth Seaway Port Authority.
