Wadena Hide and Fur has begun an 8-10 week construction project on their U.S. Highway 10 facility in Wadena.

The business, which was started in 1946, is owned by Tom and Rich Paper. The Papers buy scrap iron, metals, pop cans, new steel and offer roll-off container services.


Along with replacing the existing office facility, which was damaged in the 2010 tornado, Wadena Hide and Fur will be putting in a 70-foot certified truck scale.
