"RT Dygert International needed to make room for expanded services, equipment and technologies. The company needed a location that had a warehouse and space for a call center, sensitive high tech inspection equipment, and research and testing. It also sought international airport access, excellent community resources and the comfort and convenience that the best employees in the business deserve. We found that in Burnsville, Minnesota."

"Business Card Service, Inc. (BCSI) first moved to Burnsville in the spring of 1978. Since that time we have grown over 20 fold in sales. Today, BCSI provides corporate stationery for over 17% of the Fortune Companies. To accommodate this growth we have moved 3 times, and built our last two buildings, all here in the wonderful city of Burnsville.
 During these 28 years Burnsville has seen a lot of growth in new development and re-development. I can say with confidence Burnsville is a "Pro-Business" community. The city gets input from stake holders on many policy decisions.
 BCSI has hired people graduating form Burnsville High School as well as two local community colleges, the nearby vocational college and many of the local colleges."
