Laducer Information Management
Laducer & Associates, Inc. was formed in 1985 under the ownership and direction of James K. Laducer. The company began as a four-person operation, and through contracts with the North Dakota Department of Transportation and the U.S. Small Business Administration, provided management and technical assistance to North Dakota small and minority-owned businesses.

Even though Laducer was very successful in this endeavor, Mr. Laducer diversified the services to include information management. This undertaking proved fruitful, when in 1996 Laducer obtained a subcontract with Uniband, Inc. to provide data entry services for the Immigration & Naturalization Service (INS). Within a month's time, Laducer purchased a 10,890 sq. ft. facility in Mandan, designed the production layout and workstations, and hired over 75-people.

In 1997, additional data processing contracts were secured with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota and the North Dakota Department of Health. Success and growth continued when in 1999 Laducer securing a 5-year contract with the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Internal Revenue Service (IRS). To perform this large-scale contract, expansion to its current facility was needed, as well as employing over 75 additional data entry operators.

In 2004, Laducer began its working relationship with Reed Technology & Information Services, Inc. (Reed Tech) to capture and prepare for publication patent applications submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. That same year, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) awarded a data processing contract, utilizing Laducer's GSA Schedule 36 Federal Supply contract.

Since entering this exciting and ever-changing business arena, Laducer has proven itself as a viable data processing center. Today, the company continues its partnerships with Reed Tech, FWS and North Dakota Game & Fish.
