I'm John Peterson. Owner of a second generation metal fabrication business called Sri models. Even stamping our products and services. Made in the USA. Since 1957. My brother and I purchased the business for my uncles almost 38 years ago. What was a twelve person shop has now grown into a company employing a 165. People today.

Barack Obama and Joseph Biden. To a career politicians. Who knew nothing about business couldn't get the government all of our way. And it put our business in a tales yet. Sadly we were forced to make decisions. Which included cutting staff a torturous experience when our employers are like family. The Obama Biden here a banking regulations left us no choice. It tied our lenders hands in a tribe dose of the lifeblood of our business capital. We scratched. And we clawed for two years and then everything changed.
