Dayton welcomes Shutterfly and new jobs to Minnesota

Posted by: Jim Ragsdale under Gov. Mark Dayton, Minnesota legislature Updated: September 10, 2013 - 2:12 PM

Gov. Mark Dayton welcomed California-based Shutterfly Inc. to Shakopee on Tuesday, where the firm plans a new manufacturing facility.

"Shutterfly's expansion will bring hundreds of new jobs to Shakopee and Minnesota," Dayton said in a statement released by his office. Dayton had personally visited the firm in San Francisco, and he praised local and state officials for helping lure the firm.

The move was aided by a $1 million loan from the Minnesota Investment Fund, Dayton said. The company plans a manufacturing facility of 217,000 square feet in Shakopee, Dayton's office said. The building is expected to be completed by next summer.

Shutterfly is described as an internet-based image publishing service whose products include photo books and personalized announcements and invitations.

Katie Clark Sieben, commissioner of the state's Department of Employment and Economic Development, said Shutterfly is listed as one of the nation's fastest-growing companies and is ranked among the best companies to work for.

"Minnesota has the talented and productive workforce to help fuel Shutterfly's rapid growth," she said in a statement.
