Kallevig was excited to talk about the R & D department, where new products are born out of the goal of custom building to meet customer needs.
"We found out that it's better to build for other companies. It makes us more stable in the industry," he said.
Adrian Rick spoke about the company's constant improvement on designs.
"We've adapted and grown and try to answer what customers want. Now we're more in control of our own destiny than we've ever been."
