Minimizer, which has experienced considerable growth during that past 25 years, will open a new headquarters early next year, which also will allow it to expand its manufacturing capacity.

Recent years have seen the company gain market share internationally. Military product applications have also afforded new opportunities.

"Now is the time to expand our physical plant to allow for continued growth," said Craig Kruckeberg, Minimizer Chief Visionary.

Currently Minimizer's production, sales and administrative operations are consolidated on one campus in Blooming Prairie, Minn. Kruckeberg recently announced the purchase of a 3-acre site with multiple buildings, also located in Blooming Prairie, that will house sales and administrative personnel.

The result of this move will allow for expansion of the manufacturing capacity at the original campus.

"We need additional space for our sales and administrative staff as well as more manufacturing capacity," said Kruckeberg. "This move will allow for both of these. We're really excited about this change and the breathing room it will give us to grow and better serve existing and new markets."

The total additional space afforded by the new location will be approximately 20,000 square feet. Minimizer hopes to open the doors in January.

Minimizer manufactures poly truck fenders, poly toolboxes, customized mud flaps, and bracket kits. Minimizer fenders are offered for over-the-road trucks, construction vehicles, and agriculture equipment.
