DEI President David Markley, shared, “How time flies. Looking back, I attribute our success to our fantastic team and a heaping dose of good luck. Our employees are 100 percent committed to Design Engineering and to providing the best possible customer experience every time. We are also blessed to operate in an industry made up of really good people. In 20 years of business we’ve only had to write off three bad debts! I don’t know of another industry that can claim such integrity. It has been a great ride. Even now we are eyeing additional expansion to meet demand. I can’t wait to see what the next 20 years brings.”
