The company started in West Kaysville’s Barnes Business park and now is located in Clearfield’s West Freeport Center. The company was started with the savings of the principles and to this day has never taken on any investors or any long-term bank notes.

The focus of the company is to keep well deserved manufacturing jobs here in Davis County, and not in China.
