WALLOWA — An expanded sheet metal manufacturing business held its grand reopening Wednesday, May 25, in Wallowa, with promises of more high-paying jobs and the transition to an employee-owned company.

“The jobs we’re creating here, it’s not about money, it’s not about equipment. It’s about you guys,” co-owner Theodore Jones told his workers after a ribbon-cutting ceremony. “That’s reflected in our pay, it’s reflected in our efforts to train you.”
