Excel Plastics. That name may not sound familiar to you, but chances are good that you've seen their design work if you've walked through a retail store with signs displaying sales or prices. Some of their largest clients include Target, Best Buy,  and AT & T.  

Headquartered in Fergas Falls and with another location in Brooklyn Park, Excel Plastics LLC designs and manufactures a variety of POP displays, navigation, signing solutions and consumer products and they can do it from ideation and prototyping to high volume production requiring turnkey solutions.  

Their reputation for having an intuitive understanding of customer needs and providing great solutions precedes them because Excel focuses on a seamless partnership experience and product solution so compelling, customers want to return for more. They'll take your napkin sketch beginnings and help you turn them into its final spot on retail shelves. They don't just throw around buzz words and clichés about themselves without backing them up and they're authentic, hard-working innovators always up for the next challenge.

When choosing the right Photographer it is important to know where they come from. Who they are. And what they care about. Megan Ashley is not only here to provide you with incredible timeless art, but she also wants to give you an experience. A series of moments not only captured through her lens but a personal relationship with each and everyone of you.

Photography for Megan is more than just snapping away the minutes she will spend with you. It's about capturing a single moment in time, preserving memories that would otherwise go unseen, and freezing a split second that you can never get back again.

Lakes & Legends was born from the idea that we could create a high-quality, farm-to-table beer that would raise the expectations and expand the possibilities of what you could get from a beer. We love the improvisational spirit of Belgian farmhouse beers and the storied tradition of Trappist beers, and we couldn’t think of a better base from which to start (not to mention they’re our favorite beers to drink!)

We focus on quality ingredients, spotlighting our farming partners wherever possible. We take that quality and extend it to our taproom, creating a welcoming space where communities come together, slow down, and create those experiences that last a lifetime. We’re always experimenting and innovating, working on new beers to surprise and excite, with the hopes to elevate the experience every time you raise a glass.

The real estate world is full of cookie cutter agents, assuming there is safety in numbers and clinging to identical and ancient business methods. Not Lindahl; he understands that today’s real estate consumer relies heavily on technology in both the purchase and the sale of a home.

Don’t get him wrong though. Although technology is a centerpiece of his business it’s not the linchpin that holds it together. Ask his wife (a mortgage industry professional) – she’ll tell you that there are a number of days each week that Kris pulls double shifts just to stay on top of his work. The glue that holds the Lindahl team together, and heads above other agents in Minnesota and Wisconsin, where he also holds a license, is Kris himself.

RealEstate.com calls him the head of a “technology-based real estate powerhouse in the Twin Cities.” Real Trends and Trulia named him among the “Best Real Estate Agents in America.” His marketing methods are so powerful, so tried-and-true, that real estate agents across the country clamor to be included in his coaching sessions. Mr. Lindahl sells a home every 9 hours.

Wurwand led the company’s growth from an idea to the world’s most-requested professional skin care brand, which is today sold in over 100 countries worldwide.

In 2011, Wurwand established FITE (Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship) Dermalogica’s social impact initiative to support women entrepreneurs around the world start and grow businesses so they can support their families and communities at large.
