Our People
We love what we do and are unique in the way we operate our business. When calling our facility, you will always be greeted by an employee (not a recording) and don’t ask for voice mail because we don’t have that either. We enjoy building personal relationships with our customers which is the foundation of our success. Because we have a small workforce team, the employees work diligently to see that production and shipping schedules are on time. Our people take pride in their job and remain focused on the customers needs at all times. With caring attitudes and quality products, we believe we
can achieve even greater success in the future!


Together, our founder William G. Skewes, Sr. and Ivan D. Jones, envisioned a company that would grow and become a major brattice producer by hard work, honesty and having the best employees in the business. We believe in strong customer loyalty and every order is a priority no matter how large or small. By keeping our overhead costs to a minimum, we remain competitive and have been able to absorb price increases during
difficult times.
