As we gather on this land today the word groundbreaking stands for far more than the literal breaking of ground it, stands for the groundbreaking synergies between innovation quality and employee comfort that will make the new Maguire campus the flagship of the water storage tank industry.

Teamwork and partnership marked the preparations that have brought us to this point. Family, team members, friends, architects, consultants, contractors, vendors and many others, have been vital to the vision and the planning of this project which includes an office building, fabrication facility and maintenance shop. We would like to say thank you to those partners.  The state of South Dakota and Governor Noem and the governor’s office of Economic Development, Steve Van Buskirk and the Van Buskirk Companies, Dennis Breske in NAI Sioux Falls, the city of Sioux Falls, the Sioux Falls Development Foundation, the Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce,  Feigen Construction and all their design partners.

Being part of America’s water infrastructure is a privilege. A privilege that has been passed from Ed Maguire to our father Gene Jones senior and to the Jones brothers, Gene Jr., Jeff, Brad and myself, and someday God willing to the third generation of the Jones family. This is the reason for this new state-of-the-art campus. We are honoring the past while continuing the legacy of those who came before us and leaving our legacy for those that will come after us. The future is bright from Maguire. Thanks so much.
