Protolabs announced the purchase of the 152,000-square-foot facility on March 16. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but county property records show the building was last sold for about $7.6 million in 2016 to Taylor Communications.
Maple Plain, Minn.–based Protolabs plans to expand the Brooklyn Park building by another 50,000 square feet and use it for CNC machining. The company will move 225 jobs at its plant in the nearby city of Plymouth to the new facility. Protolabs will then expand its injection molding capacity in Plymouth.
