DBA Slabworks of Montana, started his business in 1990 as a tile installation company. in 1993, at the request of one of his customers, they began fabricating slab stone. Beginning with a rail saw and electric polishers, Slabworks grew from 2 to 16 employees. In 2008 they installed two machines just prior to the market crash, a YUKON Bridge Saw and a TITAN CNC Router. Going from 16 down to 4 employees, they survived with lean manufacturing and eventually added a FUSION CNC Saw/Waterjet and a Pathfinder.  These additions positioned them to be able to grow and capture market share as the economy recovered. Today, Dave employs 20 people and operates a fully digital fabrication facility.

I am very happy that I attended the expo. Thank you for continuing to invite me after repeated attempts to get me there. Attending this event, rejuvenated me and got me thinking again - I have already modified my 2016 business plan, had a meeting with production , & presented 3 phases of change, based on what I learned. The speakers brought great insight - I gained new ideas, found ways to improve areas that are "ok", and recognized areas that I feel we are excelling after listening to them. I look forward to working with Park Industries in the future.

The Digital Expo was a great event!  It was what we needed to help us get a concrete plan in motion for getting our shop more efficient!

Brandon & Stephanie

The digital equipment package from Park Industries (FUSION, TITAN and Pathfinder) provided us everything we were sold, and more.  Our production is now much more efficient, less stressful, and has had a significant impact to our bottom-line. This digital package is a tremendous business management tool.
