Trystar Opens New Administration and Engineering Center In Burnsville, Minn.

FARIBAULT, MN – December 13, 2019 – Trystar, a leading provider of industrial and portable
power products, has opened a new administration and engineering center in Burnsville,
Minn.  Located at 350 Burnsville Parkway, 15 minutes away from the Minneapolis-St.
Paul International Airport, it is staffed with key sales and engineering personnel who
support Trystar customers across North America and around the globe.
“Burnsville is the new headquarters location for Trystar,” said chief executive
officer Andrew J. (A.J.) Smith. “But we remain firmly committed to our manufacturing facility
and original home in Faribault. Locating our headquarters near the airport helps us respond
more quickly to customers and our proximity to the Twin Cities helps us attract the highly
qualified employees we need to realize our aggressive growth objectives.” Faribault is 45
minutes south of the Twin Cities.
Trystar designs and manufactures a range of portable and industrial power products
including boxes, panels, I-Lines, transformers, portable automatic transfer switches and welding
racks. It also manufactures single and dual-purpose generator docking stations, load bank and
rotary docking stations and UL-891 rated switchboards. Trystar cable products include portable
and industrial power cables, welding cables and utility and medium voltage cables.

Trystar Cable Test

On July 1, 2019 Trystar put our new Rubberneck cable to the test. We discovered our cable is even better, even more rugged and durable, and most important, even safer than we thought.

Trystar at the 3M Open

For four days in July, Trystar portable power products and cable helped to bring power to the inaugural 3M Open on the PGA Tour. With over 6.5 miles of cable running from generators, everything from cash registers to the Friday night concert lights powered up for 3M Open’s first year success.

Trystar Rocks the Music Festival Season

On average, 32 million people attend music festivals in the United States each year. Over 600 are scheduled for 2019. And not one of them is possible without portable power. Many of these performances consist of light and sound shows that can run into the thousands, if not millions, of dollars to produce. And if the portable power products on the grounds fail, promoters only hear the sound of money going down the drain. That’s why many of the largest shows depend on Trystar products to keep the power on and the crowds rocking.

Trystar Responds to Hurricane Florence

When hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas on September 14th, 2018, Trystar was already hard at work. In fact, we began sending portable power equipment on September 10th—four days before Florence ever made landfall. And our shipments continued throughout that week, and into the following week. When Florence hit, the Trystar team was prepared to work harder, longer, and faster so that critically needed equipment was on the road and on site.

Super Bowl LII: Trystar powers an urban outdoor event of unprecedented proportions

The festivities surrounding Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis included 10 days of events, dozens of live music performances, and entertainment and experiences of all shapes and sizes. With 2-degree temperatures and more news media than anyone could count, pulling it all off also took miles of electrical cable, hundreds of stringer boxes, dozens of electrical panels and more. One manufacturer – right here in Minnesota – helps make it all happen: Trystar.
