Thousands to dine on Pride of Dakota school lunches

More than 34,000 students from 134 North Dakota schools will lunch on food products from their own state on Wednesday, Oct. 1, during the 13th annual Pride of Dakota School Lunch Day.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring will lunch with students at Lincoln Elementary School in Lincoln on Wednesday, and discuss with them the importance of agriculture to North Dakota in in their own lives.

“Highlighting the North Dakota food products grown by our farmers and ranchers and that are processed by local businesses helps students learn how their food is raised and produced,” Goehring said. “School lunch programs can also help local economies and the state’s economy by buying these locally produced and processed foods. A wide range of North Dakota food products is now available for school lunch programs in addition to the high quality raw commodities produced in the state.”

The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) has provided posters and other promotional materials to participating schools, as well as sample menus prepared by the Department of Public Instruction.

The Pride of Dakota program fosters the development and growth of small businesses and especially businesses that are rural, farm-based or rely on agricultural commodities. Pride of Dakota member companies can participate in cooperative promotion and marketing events; receive representation at local, state, regional, national, and international trade shows and take part in educational opportunities. More than 500 companies are Pride of Dakota members. Authorized by the Legislature, the program is administered by NDDA.

Abrasives Inc. Expands Midwest Reach

Abrasives Incorporated, an employee owned company, based in Glen Ullin, ND, is pleased to announce the purchase of BCS Industrial Solutions, Inc., located in Fridley, MN, and part of the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area.

Russell Raad, president of Abrasives Incorporated, stated “This acquisition will strengthen the product offerings of Abrasives Incorporated to better serve our customers in the Upper Midwest.”

Abrasives Incorporated is the manufacturer of Black Magic® coal slag, primarily used in abrasive blasting. Abrasives Incorporated also distributes and services an extensive line of Clemco, Graco, and Bullard products, as well as International Coatings.

Raad continued “We are excited about the combination of Abrasives Incorporated’s high quality Black Magic® coal slag blast media paired with BCS Industrial’s technical knowledge. They also carry a wide variety of abrasive blasting parts and equipment, coated and bonded abrasives products, and other industrial products. Our customers will now be able to obtain all of the material, parts and equipment they need for their operation with one call.”

“We are very impressed with the people at BCS Industrial, and don’t look for any major changes,” Raad said. “With the combination of our organizations, we’ll have one company with two locations and a large on-hand inventory to better serve our customer base.”

BCS Industrial Solutions Inc. will operate as an Abrasives Incorporated company.

“At Abrasives, we pride ourselves on taking care of our customers and helping them find ways to improve their operation. Our customers call us because they know they can count on us no matter what. The employees at BCS Industrial have the same philosophy,” expressed Raad.

Black Magic’s Home
Abrasives Incorporated began manufacturing abrasive blasting material in 1990, in Elgin, ND. Later they moved to Glen Ullin, ND, which now serves as the main office and manufacturing plant.

Black Magic®, “The Tough Stuff,” was created as a preferred alternative to silica sand for surface preparation. Coal slag is not only an excellent use of recycled by-product from lignite coal fired electrical power plants, it is 99.9% silica free and has no known health risks. It is harder than silica sand and the angular shape gives it a great cutting edge. Black Magic® can be found at distributor locations throughout the central and western United States.

To find out more about Abrasives Incorporated, call 800-584-7524 or visit them at www.AbrasivesInc.com. BCS Industrial can be reached at 800-716-9651 or at www.bcsindustrial.com.
