A new name and focus for a seasoned manufacturer

South Dakota Partners Inc. (SDP) is the new name for the Clear Lake, SD manufacturing site previously owned by Empi and DJO Global.  SDP is now a contract manufacturer that specializes in PCBA manufacturing for medical devices and other markets.  The company’s expertise extends to final assembly, packaging, kitting, distribution, and repair.

With more than 30 years of manufacturing experience, SDP embraces lean manufacturing best practices.  Valued customers receive excellent products and services at competitive costs delivered on time.


The company’s employees include many with more than two decades of service with the company.  SDP people wear many hats—cross training is standard practice here so we can quickly adjust to changing demands.  Many employees have farming backgrounds so they know the meaning of hard work and doing whatever it takes to serve our customers.

SDP was purchased in early 2016 by PPI, an Athens, GA-based company that accelerates innovation through partnerships.  Learn more about our history.
