Scotchman Ironworkers on SDPB's Dakota Life

Scotchman Ironworkers on SDPB's Dakota Life

We are proud to be featured on the South Dakota Public Broadcasting (SDPB) program, Dakota Life, in recognition of our 50 years of excellence in the metal fabrication industry.

If you're not from the 605 area code you've probably never watched Dakota Life. It is a state program that celebrates the people and happenings here in South Dakota.

New episodes premier on the first Thursday of every month at 8:00 pm Central Time, 7:00 pm Mountain, from September to June. Or, just watch online here.

But now for the BEST part...

See for Yourself

Founded in 1967, Scotchman introduced its industry revolutionizing product, the 35-ton hydraulic-powered ironworker, with only six employees. Today, Scotchman Industries manufactures 13 different ironworker models among other products and employs around 80 people.

See our feature on Dakota Life below: 



We are thrilled to have SDPB's help to broadcast Scotchman Industries story, from Art Kroetch founding the company all the way to celebrating our 50th year of building the Scotchman hydraulic ironworker.

Thanks for Watching

Our South Dakota story would be a lot shorter without all our fantastic customers, so as always we want to thank them. And thank YOU for watching!
