The large layout on Le Sueur heights. Fountains spraying water. Flapping American flags. Bluegrass meticulously clipped at five inches. The imposing 300,000 sq. ft. Cambria plant of Le Sueur captures most everyone’s imagination. It’s our region’s version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We sense something magical is being manufactured inside. Every 118 seconds—President Marty Davis claims—another slab of Cambria natural quartz product leaves the line. And when it does, the whole building quakes, as if birthing a child.
Besides kinetic Marty Davis, this issue Connect Business Magazine features two inquisitive women with military backgrounds filling unique industry niches: Heather Arndt of ABC Services of Le Center and Cyndi Zarbano of Fostering Professional Development in St. Peter.
Finally, on an internal note, Connect Business Magazine recognizes the contributions of Cory Sjoblad, our sales manager since January 2001. He recently accepted a business development position at Jari USA in St. Peter. We wish him well. Going forward, rather than have a single salesperson, we will have a specialized sales team of three. Advertisers interested in southern Minnesota’s first and only locally owned business magazine—and the only one covering all nine counties in south-central Minnesota with a circulation of 8,400—should contact Becky Wagner at 507-232-3463 to get the ball rolling.
Sursum ad summum,
