President and Owner Knight Printing, Inc. and Image Printing, Inc.

Knight Printing was established in 1888 when Fargo was still young, and North Dakota had not yet become a state. Fred Knight, an east coast printer, hauled a printing press west to the Dakota Territory to start his company. From this humble beginning through today, that very same passion has driven growth and change to meet the challenges of today and provide you with the best printing possible.

Knight occupies a 37,000 square foot production facility and employs over 40 people. Dedication to quality and technology, the sincerest desire to service our clients well, and providing a pleasant and respectful work environment, have led to Knight Printing’s success.

Image Printing in Bismarck, a World Premier Print Award and a World Gold Ink Award Winner, focuses on its niche in design. With a strong graphics department, Image has created and produced award-winning logos, brochures and other print pieces for clients across the country. Image Printing occupies a 31,000 square foot production facility and employs over 40 people, many of whom are working stockholders.

“I can state with confidence that I can help you in your marketing and business promotion efforts. I can also be confident that we can get you the absolute best print project you deserve. But at the heart of what we do, is a undeniable journey of creativity and solution providing.” – Dave

Andy Nelson
President Fargo Glass & Paint

Andy joined Fargo Glass & Paint in 2016, after spending 18yrs in management with the family-owned Lavelle Company, including 18 months after the purchase by Parksite. Andy stepped into the role of President of Fargo Glass & Paint in 2020, just one year after the company become 100% employee-owned.

Fargo Glass & Paint Company Founder, E.J. Schonberg was fond of calling his company “The Friendly House”, the son of Swedish immigrants, Schonberg founded the Fargo Plate Glass Company in 1917 with $10,000 of borrowed money and absolutely no experience in the glass business.

The brand-new company announced itself to Fargo in an advertisement placed in the Fargo Forum newspaper on February 5, 1917.  The ad claimed, “We know we’ll never get any more than we earn or deserve, and we expect to hustle for all we get!”.

We have a long-standing belief that the success of Fargo Glass and Paint Company is due to employees buying into the attributes the Company was founded on.  It is also believed that the success of the Company should then be shared with employees who are key components in creating Company success. This Company belief of sharing with the employees came full circle in 2019 when Fargo Glass and Paint Company became 100% Employee Owned.

Fargo Glass and Paint Company currently has five locations to serve its customer base throughout the upper Midwest.  Headquartered in Fargo, North Dakota, Fargo Glass and Paint Company has branches in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Minot & Bismarck, North Dakota along with a retail store located in Fargo, ND.
