Welding Repair & Design - “We started out repairing items for our neighbors over 35 years ago. From there it grew into an on-farm repair shop and 12 years ago we started creating metal cut-outs, sign designs and miscellaneous furniture from old farm equipment. Each item created is unique and individual. They are free-hand designs and are cut out with a hand-held plasma cutter. I guess we’ve been recycling for about 12 years now.” Tom Switzer
Owners: Tom and Brenda Switzer and Brian and Lindsey Switzer
Quote from city/dev corp - “Tom and Brenda have worked together for many years with their welding repair and design business. When their son Brian and his wife Lindsey wanted to come back to the area to raise their family they knew they would need to expand their welding business or diversify in order to support two families. While looking at overhead doors for their welding shop they decided on a hydraulic door and began researching the various manufacturing companies. They were so impressed with the quality of the Power Lift Hydraulic Door and with welding as their main source of livelihood their additional business line presented itself.” Sandy Patton, director, Antelope County Resource Center.
