This just in, 10-25-06
The building Spohn uses to make everything, has just been burned down! Steve Spohn was on TV but did not say anything except they were going to be 'offline' for a while.
If you have an order, be advised it may be a while until they can get back to you!

That sucks. They are a top notch company. Looks like it got pretty nasty, hopefully no one was hurt.

Our shop is in an old Alcoa Aluminum plant, the building is 20 acres under roof, almost 1 million square feet. A large part of the building burned today, however by the grace of god our shop was unharmed. We are however out of electric and phone service, so please be patient with us over the next few days as we work to get back up and running.

I appreciate everyone who has emailed me asking if we're okay. Thanks for your continued support!

No need to relocate, we worked today packing up orders. Tommorow morning the shop will be under full power and things will be getting back to normal. Still working on the phone lines, they were all melted where the main trunk entered the front of the plant.

Thanks for the words of encouragement, we got kicked down but we're back on our feet and ready to roll again!

We're back to normal now, including the phone lines, so starting Monday it's business as usual again.

Thanks for the words of support everyone!
