Bismarck, ND – October 14, 2016 – Gate City Bank has a strong commitment to support small businesses in North Dakota and is proud to announce the low-interest financing that will be provided for the new North Dakota Safety Council (NDSC) Hands-On Safety Training Facility in Bismarck. This brand new 23,490 square foot $6 million safety facility will be utilized by small businesses across the state and will be the only kind in North Dakota. The low-interest financing provided by Gate City Bank will offer a savings of up to $700,000.
The North Dakota Safety Council broke ground on the new safety training facility last week, and is located in north Bismarck across from Bismarck State College Aquatic & Wellness Center. The new facility will provide year-round hands-on safety training. As one of the only facilities of its kind that’s available to the public regionally, the Safety Council aims to draw groups and individual trainees from other nearby metro areas.
“The North Dakota Safety Council is on a mission to prevent unintentional injuries and deaths in North Dakota. The new hands-on safety campus is going to help us keep families whole by allowing us to reach more people with higher quality training and a wider variety of training than we currently offer,” said Chuck Clairmont, Executive Director of the North Dakota Safety Council. “And we wouldn’t have been able to start this project without the support of our partner, Gate City Bank. We are so grateful for their support.”
"We are honored and pleased to partner with the North Dakota Safety Council’s new training facility, which will be a vital asset to the state of North Dakota,” said Norman Clark, Senior Vice President Southwest Regional Leader at Gate City Bank. "The partnership is a great example of the bank’s culture, which encourages commitment to supporting essential organizations that strengthen our communities."
