Star Academy To Become Sustainable Light Industrial Complex and Energy – SLICe
January 5, 2017
Custer, SD – My team of partners and investors would like to extend a heartfelt thank
you to the Governor’s Office, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Custer Area
Economic Development Corporation. Without their assistance and information, we could not have completed
While I can’t speak to the identities of my partners, rest assured that this is a local effort; with
local interests and concerns taken into account from beginning to end. As the changes to this property
take place over the coming year, we believe that the Custer area residents will be pleased with its low
environmental impact, innovative technology, beauty and, most importantly, the jobs created.
This will be a low impact, highly sustainable, light industrial complex that makes use of cutting-edge
technology to introduce new industries to our area, while also providing much-needed space for
commercial and light industrial concerns in the community. This latter phase will be flexible enough to
encompass everything from start-ups to established craftsmen.
I thank you for understanding the need for confidentiality in this age of highly competitive, global
business; especially in areas of new technologies. As business and competitive demands allow, updates
will be given with regard to our operations and upcoming opportunities for local employment. In the
meantime, we need to roll up our sleeves and begin the next stages of our operation.
Once again, I’d like to thank everyone who made this stage possible. Thank you for all that you have
done up to this point, and all you will be doing over the next year. I’d also like to thank the community
for your undying support of local initiatives and businesses. You make all things possible here in Custer.
