Premier Project Gets State Grant

NORFOLK - Premier Senior Marketing is getting assistance from the state of Nebraska to move into a new building in Norfolk. The insurance wholesaler is the recipient of $505,000 dollars in Community Development Block Grant funds to assist in moving into the former Sun Mart grocery store at 705 Benjamin Avenue, a project that will add 20 new employees. The City of Norfolk and Midwest Bank also will help fund the project with nearly $2 million dollars in LB-840 and conventional financing. Braun Research has purchased the current Premier building at 1310 Andrews Drive in order to move its operation from Stanton. Premier is currently operating out of the former Vishay Building until the new location is fully renovated.
