In 1990, Jim hired its first full-time employee, Dana, who is still employed and works as foreman. The business became a full family affair as Jim’s children stepped into the workforce. Jim’s son, Zack Plummer, has been helping around the shop since the age of 12 years old and has been a full-time employee since graduating from high school. Then since 2012, daughter Angelena has been Office Manager and Bookkeeper.
