Freeborn-Mower Cooperative Services 
 New Headquarters Facility 

After years of research and consideration, the Freeborn-Mower Cooperative Services (FMCS) Board of Directors
approved the planning and construction of a new facility to be located at 3366 Bridge Ave in Albert Lea.  

Groundbreaking May 2020

May 14, 2020
FMCS announces groundbreaking on the construction of a new headquarters facility to be built in Albert Lea. 

  • The new facility will consist of office, meeting and warehouse space, totaling 97,900 sq. ft. 
     
  • Constructing the new facility will provide the much needed additional space, improved security, updated technology and operational efficiencies.  
     
  • The decision to build a new facility came after the acquisition of the Alliant Energy's service territory in Southern MN nearly five years ago, almost quadrupling the member base and doubling the employee size.
     
  • Having more warehouse space will allow for trucks and equipment to be housed properly and safely, all in one location.
     
  • The project will allow for local construction job opportunities, as well as bring in additional companies to the area adding to the direct and indirect economic benefit to our community.
