The focus of the open house was a new blast-cleaning and powder-coat painting system for large steel components. As one of the largest such systems in the U.S., it is designed for components up to 80 ft in length.
A special dedication ceremony took place at the plant Monday, May 4. During the ceremony, the company's founder, Jon Laidig, presented the company with a painting depicting four generations of the Laidig family: Jon; Jon's son, Wyn, who is the current company president; Wyn's son, Daniel, who joined the company three years ago and works as an engineer; and Daniel's young son, Gabriel.
"The portrait illustrates the continuity of the company and our dedication to remain in business strongly well into the future," said senior vice president Roger Laidig.
