Room with a view

By |  July 17, 2013

I made it to River Falls, Wis., home of Foley United (as well as former home of the Kansas City Chiefs training camp. GO CHIEFS!!)

I got a great tour of the facility from Jim Letourneau, COO of the company.

As you know, Foley makes grinders. They do everything here on-site with the exception of painting (a nearby company does that for them.) Jim was happy to report that Foley is having a good year so far.

And how couldn’t they? Look at that view! Beautiful!

Thanks for your time today, Jim!
