Wideman's Farm Service Success Story

“We are thankful for the assistance from Community Futures to help purchase some new equipment: A CNC plasma cutter and a CNC press brake along with a dust collector and all related items. We are a welding and fabricating shop and up to the purchasing of the new equipment we had been outsourcing all cut and formed parts. We are now able to do all of this in-house which boosts our productivity.”
