Texarkana, Ark. (Precision Roll Grinders News Release) – Precision Roll Grinders (PRG) announces that the company will donate the necessary funding so that the Texarkana Mardi Gras can be held in 2020.

The company’s newest venture is to take its services worldwide. “The big change we are in the process of making is that we are addressing the need for our tolerances across the globe,” said Gumina. “We’ve started by going into Asia and Central America, and are now we are going to provide service to South America.”
