MAPLETON, N.D. (AP) — A bedroom community of more than 700 people next to North Dakota's largest city expects a recent growth spurt to turn into a boom, with help from a South Dakota-based company.

Officials in Mapleton say a pair of building projects involving a manufacturing plant coming to town and a current business that's expanding should attract new residents.

Mapleton is located a few miles west of Fargo on Interstate 94.

Groundbreaking was held Saturday for the 10,000-square-foot Horsch Anderson LLC manufacturing plant. The plant, which will make agricultural equipment, is the collaboration of Aberdeen, S.D.-based Anderson Industries and two other companies.

The Forum reports that the other project involves Great Plains Transport, which has been leasing space in Mapleton and plans a new 25,000-square-foot headquarters to open in 2013.
