If you have suggestions on enhancing the facility, or upgrading pieces of equipment, we would love to hear it.  Email to share your ideas.

Throughout the year we will move/switch machines based on popular use and location of the specified machine to ensure that all the equipment is utilized equally. This also helps us to gather data for future machine replacement and maintenance on a continual basis.
