Some may decline this post because of the bad rap of Portland, but not everything you see or hear in the news tells the full story. There are still many places and neighborhoods in and around the Portland area that are good places to live in. Many of our employees live in adjacent cities, for example, Vancouver, WA. That's 24 minutes from our shop. By living in Vancouver, WA, you don't pay income tax and enjoy a great quality of life with plenty of outdoor activities. Many of our employees pursue their different hobbies like crabbing, clamming, fishing, hunting, racing, traveling, etc.

Thank you,
