Things are really popping here at Direct Machinery — inside and out! While we were retooling our rebuild department we decided to spruce up our curbside appeal with a new awning. Don’t worry…for those of you that miss the old sign, I hid an “R” from the old sign in Ron’s office. Stop by any time and see if you can find it!
