Minnesota and Wisconsin. The company expanded to include a recognition awards division in 1972. In 1990 Advance Corporation formed the Braille-Tac division.

We have been very impressed with the city's development staff, and thanks to their efforts and can-do attitude we were
able to complete our relocation to Cottage Grove on time and within budget.
