The Early Stages
In 1961, Bryce D. Jewett, Sr. followed the dream that many people have and opened his own machine shop. He built a 4000 square foot building at the corner of 29th and Maury Streets in Richmond , VA. He used family labor to build the foundation - his teenage son Bryce, Jr.
Over the next two decades Bryce Sr. became known for two things: the quality of the products he manufactured and the fair way he treated people, both customers and employees.
