"Treat others how you want to be treated"


We give everyone respect, from the mailman to our vendors, to our customers to each other, we ensure respect is delivered every time.

exceptional experince

How we treat our employees, customers, and vendors directly reflects if they want to come back and work with us.  We believe everyone is to be treated with care and provided with exceptional service.


Honesty is the best; you have nothing to hide.  That is how we roll; we are transparent and want to help, not deceive.

GIving opportunity

Investing in the future

Not everyone is into the traditional high school experience; some of us would instead learn how to operate a Laser, weld or how a business works; that is why we are committed to helping our next generation of leaders succeed.

Knowledge is power

We believe that the more we know and continual improvement is key to success.  We have provided at no cost to our employees advanced technical training through the Minnesota Innovation Initiative run by The Idea Circle.  Learn more about this partnership by following the link below.


"The BSC lifestyle"

why does life have to be boring?

we are having fun!

We are passionate about what we do, and we take care of one another.   We like to say that we have a great one around here, from work to outside of work, we are not just co-workers or team members, we are a tight-knit family. So if you see us at a Hockey Game, out fishing, or just hanging out, join us!

work smart | play hard

life comes before work

Many companies say they have a work-life balance, but in practice, they do not.  We do not operate that way, we believe you only live once, and your life should be fulfilling, which means having a balanced life at work and away.

Being located in lake country where there are endless opportunities for fun year-round, we do not have to sit in traffic or commute for hours per day.  We respect that our people should work their jobs and enjoy being away.
