Darrel laughingly dismisses serious talk of his contributions to the company and the decorative concrete industry.
“Who needs me? Depends on who you ask,” Darrel says with a grin. “I still do a great deal of the research and development of the hardware, so our customers...”

During any given hour at Engrave-A-Crete, Debbie Ohland may answer several tech questions, take reservations for the next seminar, counsel customers about growing their businesses, instruct customer service representatives, and produce sales reports using the company software.

“I've always enjoyed writing,” Vicki says. “It's such a challenge to shape words into sentences that convey to the reader exactly what it is that I want them to know, or to create in the reader's mind the same picture I'm imagining myself. I come to work every day because it's just plain fun! And I leave with such a feeling of accomplishment. It's a very..."
