We no longer hand-finish a lot of stuff. Training someone to do that was always a challenge. When we moved here in 1997, we brought three guys with us from California that had been with us forever. And the four guys we hired the first month we were here are still here, and they learned everything in the shop. We’re still fairly small. One of our guys, Richard Paz, has been here since 1972, and he’s the grandfather in the shop now. He runs the finishing room and balances every propeller. Sue Bright, our office manager, runs the show and has been with us since Day One.
