Busing Rochester workers to Spring Grove


Mon, Dec 22nd, 2014
Posted in All Business Announcements



Usually, when you think of workers being bused by Rochester City Lines (RCL), you think of people from all over southeast Minnesota traveling to Rochester to their place of employment, especially to the Mayo Clinic. The privately owned company, which provides a commuter service to over 40 communities in southeast Minnesota, now serves one more community, transporting commuters to and from their place of employment.

The manufacturer, Northern Engraving Corporation, with a factory in Spring Grove has been added to the destinations for the bus line. However, this time workers are being transported from Rochester to their place of employment in Spring Grove. Christian Holter, Community Liaison RCL, confirmed that for the past six to eight weeks they have been busing from twenty to thirty workers to Spring Grove’s Northern Engraving.

Dan Holter, General Manager RCL, explained Northern Engraving hired Rochester City Lines to bus their employees from Rochester to Spring Grove. He said this is the only company that has hired them for this service. They have been approached by a couple of other businesses to transport workers from Rochester, but have not worked out an agreement with another company at this time.

Rochester City Lines also provides a charter service.

Northern Engraving was founded in 1908 and designs and supplies engraved metal or plastic nameplates/labels for product branding identification, auto aluminum accent trim, molded plastic, decorative appliance trim, and more, using both computerized and manual machines. The corporate headquarters is located in Sparta, Wisc. The Spring Grove factory is one of four subsidiary regional locations. The corporation takes on small jobs as well as multimillion piece jobs.

Most all of us own products sporting a nameplate or emblem manufactured by Northern Engraving: Ford, GMC, Harley Davidson, HP, and Whirlpool, to name a few. The Spring Grove factory has an estimated staff of 50 to 99. For information on the product line go to www.norcorp.com
