Brooklyn Park Declares Tuesday “Nystrom Day”

2:51 PM | Tuesday, December 10, 2019

The city of Brooklyn Park celebrated the expansion of a growing company as city officials declared Tuesday “Nystrom Day.”

Mayor Jeff Lunde joined Nystrom CEO Sue Thomas and company employees for a ribbon cutting on a new building expansion. The added building nearly doubles the size of Nystrom’s Brooklyn Park campus.

Nystrom makes products for the commercial building industry. The company’s growth also highlights the need for workers.

“Where the job growth and the needs are is actually in manufacturing,” said Brooklyn Park Mayor Jeff Lunde. “People can make a really good living. And the worker shortage is very acute. And so in Minnesota, you’ll find manufacturers all over our city and other cities we talk about, just to find people who want to do a job. They’ll make more money doing this job than other jobs. But they’re not ever told that.”

Nystrom has 230 employees and the expansion will allow for future job growth.

It takes all of us

This year at the Nystrom Holiday Party, we had a theme that “It takes all of us!” As our team arrived at the party, everyone took a turn placing a bough on the frame of the wreath. Together, we created this beautiful end result! It now hangs on the front of our building as a reminder that it takes all of us to make our business continue to thrive. Happy holidays to you from the Nystrom team!

Spreading Holiday Cheer

As part of Nystrom’s corporate responsibility, every December Nystrom participates in an annual Holiday Drive. This year, Nystrom collected three barrels of gifts totaling 121 pounds. These gifts were delivered to Community Emergency Assistance Programs (CEAP) for distribution to 600 families and 1,800 children.

CEAP provides for families in the Brooklyn Park community a food shelf, Meals On Wheels, school supplies that we help with too, and others needed services.  They grow vegetables in the summer for families and teach kids about gardening and healthy eating.  CEAP has been a great community organization to partner with and support.
