Mike Skala was the creator of this product and was a genius. After his passing a few years ago, his family worked very hard to learn and keep the company going. It was a struggle at times, but they found a way to honor Mike's commitments and carry on. We have offered technical assistance to them over these last few years and formed a relationship with Sherrie and her daughter. When they mentioned they might be ready to sell, we let them know we would be interested. Over the last year we've been talking about it more and finally in March we purchased the company and drove up to meet Sherrie and learn more about the manufacturing. We are honored they have trusted us with the opportunity to carry on what Mike started many years ago. It's important to us to acknowledge his legacy in these products.
