    Kevin, congratulations on raising a great daughter. Sounds like you've got a great situation with some new ideas to continue the family business. I know my Dad always enjoyed doing business with your Mom back in the day and wish you and your family all the best.

    As a foundry man it is great to hear foundries in the US to find ways to be competitive with foreign countries and keep the work here in our country and the only way to do that is to bring automated equipment do produce at a faster pace and yet doing it safely also creating cells to handle types of castings and have all the work done in the cell, the least amount of transfer to other departments the better you will be in meeting the customers demands and reducing your lead times . In today's business service is the way to continue having more business awarded to you. by the way i have met your Dad at foundry meeting and he is a great foundryman, i use to work for Pacific Steel Casing Co.
