An East Grand Forks business is requesting a $400,000 loan from the Grand Forks Growth Fund for an expansion across the river. Ideal Aerosmith is moving some of its operations to a building on South Washington. The company will continue to use its building in East Grand Forks as well. Ideal Aerosmith will have an open house on April 28th that Grand Forks Mayor Mike Brown and North Dakota Governor John Hoeven are expected to attend.

"We've been growing year in year out for a number of years and frankly we were out of space. And when the opportunity came to jump into this location in Grand Forks it fit us very well," said Ideal Aerosmith President John Mohn.

American Defense Industries in Grand Forks will also be expanding, it's expecting to add more than 5,000 square feet to its manufacturing space.
