"If there is a market segment we can get in, they don’t mind putting the capital in it, to expand your sales. They don’t mind working with you and you have a full support system."

Hillary Whitley

“It’s easy to go to work. They make it easy, they care about me, they care about my growth, they care about what the next level for the plant is, it’s just exciting. It makes you want to come to work.”
