“BLAEDC has been an integral part of helping connect the dots and identify financial strategies for future business growth and development.”

Aimee Jobe Owner, NP Event Space September 6, 2017

“BLAEDC was instrumental in our move to Baxter.  Mike and Sheila met with us to connect us to organizations and individuals in this area that paved the way to a smooth transition for our family.  Mike not only introduced us to business contacts, but also set up meetings for us to meet with the school district and tour Forestview Middle School at which both our children will attend this fall.  We appreciated the warm welcome to the Baxter/Brainerd area!”

Brad and Paula Chapulis Baxter Residents September 6, 2017

“Pequot Tool & Mfg. started working with BLAEDC back in the late 1980’s with our parents.  BLAEDC helped them find affordable financing to build a new building and add machinery and expand our our business, so we could bring on new employees to grow our sales.   Today, we see value in BLAEDC helping us find key people, to continue to help grow our business.”

Karlo Goerges CEO, Pequot Tool and Mfg., Inc. September 6, 2017

“Navigating complex financing paths can be stifling.  BLAEDC is very instrumental in making those connections as well as business contacts and site selection.”
