DeZURIK 90th Anniversary Open House Draws Big Numbers

To celebrate its 90th anniversary, DeZURIK opened its Sartell, MN plant to the public on Sept. 22. The turnout was much larger than anticipated.

“At least 1,750 people lined up for tours at the plant from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. And that was a conservative number, said a company spokesman, because many on the tour did not sign the registration sheets. Each tour group ranged in size from 30 to 50 people. The wide-eyed visitors, including many children, gaped at the giant valves in the plant, one of them 12 feet wide. And many in the tour groups remarked with awe in their voices the sheer size of the DeZURIK plant – more than 400,000 square feet. Some commented to tour guides they had driven past the place for years and never had any inkling DeZURIK was so big,” according to News Leaders
