Our firm was retained by UMA Precision Machining to bring additional incentives to the table for their new building. Initially located in a facility in the owner's backyard, UMA identified a county owned parcel in Zimmerman, MN to relocate their business.

Project Elements

Financial Incentives

$147,330 Total Incentives
$1.9 Million in Capital Investment
27 Jobs
$47,052 Tax Base
25,000 Sq. Feet

This project more than doubled the size of their previous building and nearly doubled their workforce. With the additional tax base that this project brought to the Zimmerman community, Decklan Group was able to capitalize on nearly $100,000 in local incentives to support the new construction.

"We started working with Decklan Group when we were conceptualizing our new building. Not only were they able to work with the City and County to get us nearly $100,000 in tax abatement, they have also worked with the state to get us nearly $50,000 to train our employees. They also took the time to review some new marketing channels we had been neglecting and their suggestions have already yield results above our expectations. Both Annie and Tim’s knowledge of available programs, incentives and innovative marketing have helped our company grow efficiently and profitably. Their services are an exceptional value."
Tom McChesney, President, UMA Precision Machining

Since then, Decklan Group has obtained nearly $50,000 in customized training grants to provide on-site, customized training for the UMA team.
