“Being a small town, businesses don’t survive if they can’t develop an enduring reputation. At the end of the day, you’re likely to stand next to your customer or supplier at a soccer game or grabbing pint at the bar. We rely heavily on local businesses as customers and vendors and find it comforting to know these partnerships are built with companies and people we can trust.” 

– Deven Paolo, President, Solid Form Fabrication
