To the Editor:
We would like to personally thank Mike, Kevin, Lori and Tim from Aluma for allowing us to represent them in their decision to locate and expand in Emmetsburg. They are pleasant folks to work with and the whole negotiating process went smoothly.
Special Thanks to Al Laubenthal who was instrumental in encouraging them to locate here. Al was persistent in convincing them to come to our community. Next time you see Al, thank him for his efforts.
Thanks to Steve Heldt for his assistance in steering us in the right direction and Ed Noonan for representing the Board of Supervisors at one of our initial meetings. John Bird and Steve Finer for their efforts and support. Kris Ausborn at Iowa Trust for his expertise. Jeff Manwarren was extremely helpful and made himself available at the building to answer questions and Lori Williamson from John Brown's office who made themselves immediately available whenever we needed anything and Mike Wentzel for representing the Seller.
Aluma will give the community a huge boost not only for the employment aspect but because they have an incredible product and will make the building a showplace. Our Johnson Realty trailer is made by Aluma, and it looks as good today as the day we bought it.
