Digi-Key Approved for Tax Exemption; Adding 50+ Jobs

Fargo City Commissioners have approved a 10-year tax exemption for Digi-Key Corporation’s distribution and design center in north Fargo.

The Thief River Falls based company is one of the world’s largest electronic component distributors.

It applied for the exemption for the addition of new, multi-million dollar automation equipment in one of the company’s two large buildings in Fargo.

The project is expected to add 50 skilled jobs in the first five years of the tax exemption.

Digi-Key now has 90 employees in Fargo.
