    Terry and Dusty built a successful diesel engine repair business that focuses on the oilfield industry. They came to the ASU SBDC and Director Dave Erickson to discuss creating a new machining business that would complement their existing engine repair business. Currently they have to send out machining work to other machine shops. They had an opportunity to purchase machine shop equipment and began the planning process by working with Erickson. They worked together on structure of business, organizational chart, employee needs, and marketing. The Thompson’s, on their own, built the machine shop building and installed the equipment purchased previously. They are now testing the equipment and will soon be ready for machining business.
