Our headquarters building and central production facility is in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. Built in 2015, it covers 110,000 square feet and is optimized for productivity. It replaces three separate locations used for engineering, warehousing and production. This minimizes the time and effort needed to take a project from conception to completion. With underground radiant heating, diffused air flow, color-balanced LED lighting, bright walls and clean floors, our facility provides a safe, comfortable place for all employees. Most office spaces in this building receive natural light, and the production floor gets fifty percent more light than an average office. We planted the surrounding landscape with a variety of native grasses, shrubs and trees to minimize the need for fertilizers, irrigation and other grounds maintenance.Learn More
Many of our systems are automated. We shift routine tasks to machines so employees can do more interesting and creative work. A physical trainer often visits headquarters to lead sessions in movement and balance — helping employees stay flexible and avoid injuries while focusing on detailed work that requires close attention. Our employees have opportunities to learn new skills and train for other jobs within the company. We provide incentives for them to continue their education, and often hire for new positions from within our existing staff. We always look for interested and capable candidates. We regularly visit educational institutions to find people who can help create the next generation of processes and products.Learn More
