Flipping channels the other night, my husband tunes into that History Channel show with those two guys from Iowa that travel the country to buy junk. For some reason he finds this show entertaining. I find it annoying. Please don’t take offense, this is just my opinion. I know many people like and enjoy this show and I do recognize the value in some of the items these guys come across. I usually skim past the show as it just really isn’t of much interest to me. Knock, knock, knock. Enter compromise. The television remains on the channel and he continues to watch so I pick up my book and read a few pages. I glanced up and saw a guy on the show talking about chopping down the roofline of an old rusted out car. What really caught my attention was that he was wearing a t-shirt that had a definition style to it – definition – like a dictionary (yes, I know I’m dating myself!). But that shirt was pretty unique!
Someone who makes something you can’t.
I thought “Hey – that’s us – that’s Stellar!” We’ve got fabricators, welders, assemblers, material handlers, painters and more! We have this great big team of employees that all have a hand in making something that not just anyone can. They use their hands to make something that our customers find value in. And I do have to say it’s a pretty great feeling when you are out away from home and see that Stellar Industries, Inc. logo on a work truck, crane or a piece of equipment that you actually know who helped build it. Knock, knock, knock. Enter hometown pride.
So maybe I did glean a benefit from watching the antiquing show…. I get it now. The stuff Mike and Frank are finding during their episodes is what has led us to where and who we are today. It’s our history. That piece of history was made by someone, someone who used their hands, spent their time and effort and put a lot of sweat into creating or fabricating “something” much like our team members do here.
We are resourceful. We are dedicated. We are owners.
And – we are looking for people to join us!
P.s. We will train!
