Don, Dustin, Shane,

Wow.  40 years!  I wanted to say congratulations to all of you for absolutely killing it as a full service E & I shop. And not only for your success, but for being somewhere a shit head from the west coast with terrible work ethic could learn how to be a good employee, a hard worker, a real-life tradesman, a successful teacher and really a part of the family.

Working for you all changed my outlook on what a “job” is.  I truly feel I ended up with a real life career that I was proud of, and was excited to go too nearly everyday.  I know a lot of tradesmen that work for other companies that will never get it.

I lived in ‘John for nearly 14 years, and I spent most of those either working directly, or in-directly for you.  That’s almost half my working life.

So thanks. Thank you for your patience, tough love, and lean-into-the-wind style of business management.

I want to wish you all continued success with Epscan, and all of your satellite projects and businesses. Keep making tough, well trained men and women.

All the best.
