This is an excellent opportunity for the right individual. Great company to do business with. I've been a customer of Sharif's ever since he opened the doors.
Thanks Paul. Over the year's we've become good friends with many of our customers and I always appreciate the support you and others have given us. Forged is a very special place to work. It's not for everyone, and the job can be extremely demanding and very challenging. But the rewards are equally satisfying. We hope to find that perfect person over the next few weeks and months.
