There is no way to say in just a few sentences what the VLT program has done for our business. The business climate in Western Maryland has changed dramatically in the last five years. Had we not been able to move into the industrial manufacturing with the CNC machines I doubt we would still be here thus putting four people out of a job. As it turned out, it has allowed us to add one more employee to our staff and we hope to continue expanding this side of the business.
