    MILFORD, Iowa — GrapeTree Medical Staffing plans to add 200 to 300 jobs as part of a $20 million expansion of its Milford headquarters.

    Gov. Kim Reynolds joined company officials Tuesday night for the announcement, which comes a week after GrapeTree was named one of the fastest growing private companies in America by Inc. magazine.

    In a release,  said the company is excited to expand in Milford, the Dickinson County community of a little more than 3,000 and where it was founded in 1999.

    “We are proud of the strong commitment we are making to our local community by bringing new jobs to the Iowa Lakes Corridor, and by helping to drive economic development in Northwest Iowa,” GrapeTree CEO Tim Kinnetz said.

    GrapeTree, founded in 1999 in Milford, a Dickinson County city of about 3,000, plans to break ground on its new headquarters in spring 2018 and complete the 72,000-square-foot structure by summer 2019. The state-of-the-art, two-story structure will create 200-300 new office jobs in Milford, up from the current workforce of around 90.
