Advanced Blending Solutions held an open house June 8 at its new manufacturing facility in Wallace. Company CEO Mike Rasner, with family members in center, cut the ribbon at the new facility. Rasner, a Wallace native, bought the former Mellen Elementary School and converted it into the new manufacturing facility. The company is a full service manufacturer of blending and material handling systems for the plastics industry. Rasner said he's glad to be in a familiar community with the business. The company currently employs about 20 people and plans to expand.
