Certain machines were getting ordered over and over by new and existing customers, and while minor changes and improvements in these machines continually take place, the repeat nature of these orders suggests that this product line is worth pursuing.” Mr. Schap went on to say that the growth so far was all accomplished simply by ‘word of mouth’ and that a dedicated sales effort would be another logical step.
A special focus on ease of use, repeatable results, and dependability was to be the company’s main criteria. Now, after more than 30 years, many of Schap’s first machines are still in use today.
