Estherville, IA (KICD)–A German wind energy company has chosen to locate in the Iowa Lakes Corridor.

Corridor President and CEO Kathy Evert tells KICD News that the number of jobs will be driven by the market.

Windtest, in the market since 1996, has established itself internationally as an accredited measuring and testing institute and made its name worldwide as an independent evaluator and service provider in the wind energy sector.

The windtest office will be officially opened upon Iowa Lakes Community College completing their new sustainable energy resource technology (SERT) facility in August.
