Lakeville Groundbreaking for Mendell Machine and Manufacturing

Lakeville_Groundbreaking_Mendell_Machine_and_ManufacturingOn a gorgeous, sunny day in Lakeville’s Airlake Industrial Park, Mendell Machine and Manufacturing celebrated a groundbreaking to kick off a new addition to their existing production facility.





 The ceremony started with an introduction by Bryan Bartz, President of Mendell. Bartz acknowledged the hard work of his team, which he cited as the reason for the company’s continued growth. Additional event speakers included Lakeville Mayor Matt Little and Jeff Rossate, Director of Business Development for the State of Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED). Mayor Little stated how proud he is of this company and the entire Mendell team. He also expressed how exciting it is that Mendell has helped to make Lakeville, Minnesota known around the world with each shipment.

 The Mendell staff, owners, and leadership, along with representatives from the City of Lakeville and the State of Minnesota, and other honored guests, all joined in to help celebrate the official breaking of ground. After the dust had settled and shovels and hard hats were secured, all were invited to join in a lunch reception, complete with outdoor grill, staffed by members of Mendell’s team.


This expansion will include approximately 18,700 SF, expanding the existing 28,571 SF building for a completed office/production facility of 46,793 SF, located at 21463 Grenada Avenue, Lakeville, Minnesota. APPRO Development, Inc. is honored to have been chosen to work with Mendell for a second time. This expansion project is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2015.
