If you see our VP of Operations, Travis Kind, today don’t forget to wish him happy birthday and buy him a beer! 🥳🎉
You may not have the same superpowers as your twin Mr. Incredible, but you have your own superpowers that make you incredible!
Happy birthday Trav! You don’t look a day over 18.😉

Opportunity Devlelopment Center (ODC) serves people with disabilities skills training and employment services, and assistance in becoming more involved in their comunitees. It is such a pleasure working with ODC and we are excited to continue working with them in the future! For the month of April, Colbhy Metal was rewarded Champion of the month and we are so grateful!
"When I stopped in and met with Darla and Mike to talk about ODC’s mission, they were on board right away! Colby Metal has been working with Abbotsford High School for years with the Youth Apprenticeship Program. ODC started working with the school, as well, and we found this to be a great way to partner. Darla and Mike have let ODC individuals complete internships and temporary work experiences for the past fewyears. Each person that ODC has brought to them have been given valuable experience and training. They see the value in working with ODC to help people gain employment skills and even start careers with Colby Metal. This has been a great opportunity for everyone involved. Colby Metal has been and will continue to be a great partner!"
- Eric Gudmunsen, ODC Employment Coordinator
Thank you so much for bringing in such amazing people to become a part of our team!

I am excited to announce that starting today we will be doing ’Meet the Team Monday’ every Monday and ’Throwback Thursday’ every Thursday!
This week you will be meeting Nick Bender. He has worked at Colby Metal for almost five years as a welder. Nick grew up right down the road in the small town of Unity. In his free time Nick enjoys hunting, fishing, and bow fishing. We asked Nick what three things he would bring if he were stuck on a stranded island. He chose a gun, tent, and of course, a fishing pole. Nick’s secret talent is woodworking. His biggest pet peeve is loud chewers. Nick has two phobias, snakes and spiders. And if Nick could have one super-power it would be immortality so he could live forever. Next week you will be meeting Mario Bonilla.
We will also start initialing our posts with who ever created it. Ky and Darla Viegut will be the main people posting on the blog! Ky is HR/Administrative Assistant and Darla is the Vice Present and Director of Human Resources. We are also trying to keep this blog and our facebook updated with news and fun little posts. Stay tuned!
