  • During our recent startup of a new facility, we were able to utilize Doug Arndt.s talents to save time and money. Doug's expertise in working with local government agencies was invaluable. His engineering skills and ability to act as a negotiator between Lessee and Lessor allowed us to meet a very short timeline. I can honestly say that we will not hesitate to use Doug's talents in the future!
