MFRA announces name change to Sambatek

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – MFRA, Inc., announced that it has officially changed its name to Sambatek, Inc. The change reflects the firm’s expansion into new markets and territories, and will coincide with the planned move of its corporate headquarters to Minnetonka.  The office will relocate to 12800 Whitewater Drive, Suite 300, Minnetonka, MN 55343.

Samba said the name change denotes a new chapter in the 100-person firm’s history, which dates back to 1966. “We’ll always honor the legacy of McCombs, Frank and Roos, whose initials made up ‘MFRA,’ he said, adding, “Sambatek resonates with our aspirations for the future.
