We're a small business

Really small. Not only does it help keep costs down for the customer, but it lowers both our operating cost and environmental impact. We are small enough to offer customized attention for each project, and to make sure you get everything you need when you need it.

We operate lean, and that means the cost to the customer is always within reason. We want to create affordable services and products, not expensive halo-products that no average person can reasonably afford. We keep things clean, simple, and practical. That's part of our business philosophy.

Conservation

Conservation is one thing small businesses can be really good at. We're right here in your local community, and we're all in this together. We live here; we work here; we also want clean water and fresh air because we use it too. So we do our part to make sure our environmental impact is reduced as much as possible because it's OUR environment too.

As part of our environmntal impact awareness, we rebuild or reuse equipment and tools whenever possible rather than throwing them into a landfill or junkyard. Included in this are the vehicles we operate as a business. Our shop vans and trucks are not bought new, because making and buying new vehicles is NOT good for the enviroment (and it usually costs more money). If something breaks, we fix it. We operate vehicles with 'rebuilt' titles, and vehicles that were stripped and left to rot until we got them. We put in some time and love, and they emerge as good as new with much less waste, garbage, and resources than a brand new factory made vehicle would produce coming down the line.

We don't junk or throw out old equipment when it can be fixed. A little time, a little sweat, and it can be as good as new. Where possible, we even build our own equipment.

All scrap metals where possible go directly to recycling, and our shop reuses and repurposes as much as possible.

Pragmatism

A small business MUST be practical to survive. It's part of our business philosophy. Not only does it help us to keep organized and low-cost, but it enables us to pass those cost-savings on to the customer. We're a small business, and we plan to stay that way. We operate practically so that our services and products will ALWAYS be affordable.

We keep everything as simple and straightfroward as possible, from our business philosophies to our website. We also extend our viewpoints to all aspects of mechanical engineering such as the 85 MPH speedometer. Hopefully you will find our site clean, simple, and easy to navigate. Things don't need to be overcomplicated!

Continuous improvement

We are constantly involved in presenting a better service and a better company. Even the smallest details can sometimes be improved, even though they might not be noticable to the casual observer. Customer input and constant quality evaluation is always used to suggest improvements that we evaluate for effectiveness and cost.
