The IPI plant located at the North Central Correctional Facility in Rockwell City, open since 2006, mainly performs metal fabrication. Products and services include equipment refurbishing (snow plows, dump trucks, etc.), boat docks and park items.
Offenders working in the Rockwell City plant are also able to work towards a welding certification. It typically takes the average offender 6 months of working at IPI to earn their certification, and about 12 offenders earn a certification annually. Welders are in demand in Iowa, and offenders coming out of Rockwell City with a welding certification are well prepared for a career in welding.
The Rockwell City plant employs two IPI staff and an average of twenty offenders.
