BellPro Architectural LLC, located in Rogers, Minn., has turned a year old.

The company now has 40 full-time employees, having recently added five in the office and 16 in the shop. Owner David Bell says he looks to hire more in the near future.

“It’s been a great first year that has surpassed all expectations,” he says. “We beat our projected sales goal by 40 percent for the year. I took on this first year not knowing what to expect but knowing I wanted to deliver a quality product and always adapt to meet the needs of our customers.”

Project highlights in the company’s inaugural year include: custom stainless steel plate entrances for Harmon at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia; unitized custom plate panels for Reflection Windows at 1035 Van Buren in Chicago; and plate panels, shadow boxes and coping for Harmon at the FMC Tower in Philadelphia.

BellPro recently added a new machining center, brake press and another router table at its facility. The company’s capabilities include brake metal, shadow boxes, back pans, column covers, sunshades, trellis’, flat sheet, plate panels, composite panels, custom assemblies and fully unitized panels.

“2017 Looks to be another great year for us, and we look forward to meeting and exceeding every need our customers have,” says Bell.
