Looking to Grow Your Small Business?

Curious Puppy by Ashley Linn Trann

Looking to grow your small business? Or, looking for information to start a new business? APPRO and CERRON have the resources you need. In today’s age of electronics, instant gratification, and information on demand, whatever you can Google, can be found in a matter of seconds. But, how do you know if the answer is trustworthy? I love that insurance company commercial where two friends are talking on the sidewalk with the message, “if it is on the internet, it MUST be true” as her “French model” boyfriend (who she met online) walks up. So, how do we really know what to believe and who to trust?

Airlake Industrial Park in Dakota County, Minnesota, is a part of who we are - for APPRO Development, it is part of our history, it is where we work, where we build, and where we have served many of our clients for more than a quarter of a century! While we were recently going through our archived photos and redesigning our website, we came across a copy of a presentation that was given at the 2004 Manufacturers' Appreciation Event, hosted by the City of Lakeville, MN. We thought others might enjoy seeing their buildings in this blast from the past!
