I have had the pleasure to work with Rob for over a year. His products are excellent, service is outstanding, and his business is growing fast. This grant money will help Rob meet his rapidly increasing demands by hiring necessary employees, buying better equipment, and procuring materials in volumes to realize economies of scale without sacrificing the quality of his products.
