Ruan Transportation Management Systems, Inc. has reached a deal to expand into a new 300,000-square-foot distribution center Duke Realty is developing. The company has agreed to lease space in Duke's Gateway North Business Center near the intersection of Highway 101 and County Road 37 in Otsego. The new distribution center will allow Ruan to combine operations now in two Brooklyn Park facilities on Winnetka Avenue, said spokeswoman Tara Meier. About 157 employees work at the center. Duke bought the 120-acre site for the industrial park in 2006, just before the real estate market hit a brick wall due to the recession. In 2008, it had some success leasing space to two manufacturers BTD Manufacturing and T.O. Plastics, both part of Fergus Falls-based Otter Tail Corp.
