With continued growth of the company, they realized that additional room was needed for the office display and also for a larger areas for memorials to be manufactured.
An opportunity came up with an area of land that was located 3 1/2 miles North of Detroit Lakes on Highway 59. Together, Andy and Diane decided to move their operation to this location.
