Forging Ahead. . . Together

A Message from Matthew

Amid everything that is going on, we would like to thank each of you for your continued support over the years. We are committed to maintaining a high level of service during this time. Our President, Matthew Nix, prepared a video to discuss our plan going forward. Thank you, again, and we will all get through this by Forging Ahead together.

A Recent Special Project

We recently had the opportunity to work on a very special project. A customer came to us needing a handle to add to her grandson’s bike so that she and her family can hold onto the bike for safety. Her grandson had recently out grown his old bike that already had a handle, but she couldn’t find one to attach to his new bike. Our Repairs and Maintenance Division fabricated, coated, and attached this new handle to the bike so that our customer can continue to allow her grandson to ride his bike safely.
