Most of our business partners know that Maine is the most northeastern state in the U.S., with a lot of coastline on the Gulf of Maine, with pretty cold ocean water. We normally get cool seabreezes in the summer, and have a delightful time, especially in July and August, with air temps in the 70's and 80's.
Today we may reach 98 degrees here in North Berwick. Most of this week we have been in the 90's, and had the same a bit earlier in July. I am not sure if this is global warming, but it sure is hot for us here!
We have got onto a schedule the last few years of using the first month of the year to get our messaging and training out to our dealer system. The Hussey Seating dealer network is widely acclaimed to be the best in the business; we feel fortunate to have attracted such a talented group of professionals, and we work incredibly hard to make sure they have all the tools and expertise we can give them. Hussey dealers are truly the "feet on the street" for our Company, and the ones who are the face that the end customers see and rely upon.
We are proud to report that last Tuesday was the first production day of Clarin Seating here at Hussey Seating in North Berwick. Approximately five months ago we set a schedule for moving the Clarin operation from Lake Bluff Illinois to North Berwick Maine, and we circled today as the day to begin making parts - and we hit it right on the nose!
