Local Manufacturing Making News

This doesn't happen often.  Two news stories in two days about local manufacturers.

Sunday, The Dispatch profiled Ariel Corp. for their series on the soon-to-boom oil and gas industry.  The best quote:  ". . .Because of the Marcellus shale and the Bakken shale (in Montana and North Dakota) — oil and gas, not just gas — the United States could be energy independent. Really, truly."  Great news.  And I believe Karen Wright is right.

Today, a local machine shop gets profiled by The Advocate.  See the story, dateline St. Louisville.  Precision is the name of the game in this tiny shop.  The best quote:  "A lot of my work is held in (or only allowing a difference of) one-third of a hair strand."  Wow.  St. Louisville is a small town.  Proves skills can be found anywhere.

Keep them coming, news media.
