“I have spent most of my career working in the theoretical world of finance and investment management. Teaming up with Darin has given me the opportunity to work in a business that involves building things with your hands. The stainless tanks we build are functional, but they are also works of art. I am very excited and take great pride in what we deliver to our customers.”
