Notes

T.R.S. Industries was started in 1983 in the garage of Roger Cossette. Roger’s wife Claudia and son Richard joined shortly after and the company continued to grow. Richard’s wife Joy joined the company along with their sons Shane and Bob. Tarp manufacturing equipment was also purchased as we continued to grow.

In 1989 the company expanded to the Fargo Industrial Park and built a building large enough to drive a Semi Truck or trailer into the shop for repairs and installations. In 1992 and 1995 we added to the existing building to more than double our space. In 2005 T.R.S. Industries expanded to add the Fabrics Division, which was located directly behind the existing building and used for new tarp production and custom covers.

In 2009, T.R.S. Industries added a new building which housed production and the majority of the offices. The new location was 1230 40th St N, Fargo, ND. T.R.S. still had their location at 4119 14th Ave N, which was used to house installation of tarps and repair on large truck tarps.

In 2013, T.R.S. Industries added 36,000 square feet onto their new building, which increased manufacturing space to 69,000 square feet. This new addition was used to house all of the employees under one roof, in order to serve customers more efficiently. T.R.S. manufactures many of the parts for Roll Tarp Systems and stocks a wide selection of replacement tarps, lumber tarps, and steel tarps.

Rich has been with T.R.S. Industries since it was established in 1983. He is also a sales associate and marketing manager. You can find him at the trade shows that T.R.S. Industries attends.

Notes

the100,inc. GOLD Sponsor
Midwest Radio of Fargo-Moorhead’s service is grounded in three defining principles – we entertain, we inform the community and we achieve results for our advertisers. With heritage stations consisting of KFGO-AM, KOYY-FM and KVOX-FM coupled with statewide coverage on KNFL-AM and top-tier local stations KMJO-FM and KRWK-FM Midwest Radio of Fargo-Moorhead has the premiere radio properties in the state of North Dakota.
Midwest Radio of Fargo-Moorhead is owned and operated by a family broadcasting company with North Dakota roots, Midwest Communications. Founded in Wausau, Wisconsin in 1958 by Duke Wright, Midwest Communications has grown from a single station to over 72 radio stations across Middle America. Duke, his wife Pegge, daughter Mary-Kay and sons Michael and Jeffrey oversee daily operations of this growing, locally managed, community focused media company.
Having grown up in Lisbon, Pegge (Anderson) Wright would make frequent trips to North Dakota with Duke. These visits allowed him to hear and experience first-hand the heritage, community focus and tradition that is “The Mighty 790”, KFGO-AM.
In 2013, Duke realized his and Pegge’s dream to finally own and operate a station of such history and integrity as KFGO-AM. Thus, forming Midwest Radio of Fargo-Moorhead, led by KFGO(790 & 94.1), KOYY-FM (Y94), KVOX-FM (Froggy 99.9), KNFL-AM (740 & 107.3 The Fan ), KRWK (101.9 JACK FM) and KMJO (104.7 DUKE-FM).
