Who says you can’t run a lab with 4 people? And who cares if it's run by only 4 people...that would be 4 more employed people here in New Ulm than there was before. And as far as the money for the equipment...again, who cares...maybe he's rich or maybe he's taking out a loan.

Someone explain to me how you can run a lab with 4 employees. This is a front for sending the work down to the lab already operating in Iowa. He has no intention of operating a lab in New Ulm. Where is the money for all the equipment he would have to be buying coming from? We are not getting the whole story here. If you read in the paper, Finstad says he would do services nobody else in the county does and next thing out of his mouth he says, but there would be some overlap with existing businesses. What is it, either you are doing something different or you're not?

I'm guessing here but I think when MVTL started up it wasn't quite as hard as what Frontier Labs will have to go through. I guess New Ulm has so many businesses knocking down it's doors that they can turn away some.
