Triple C Machine owes a lot of our success to CAIC they have been great to work with and it is good to know that small business starting out has people to help get us up and running. When I first started the business grew way faster than I even thought and with out CAIC they are no way I could be as big as we are today. We have 2 locations now and a lot of new equipment to better take care of our customers. We will be adding on more equipment and employees also work is looking good . I just like to say thanks to CAIC , my customers , my employees and everyone that has helped me get to this point and we are not finished yet.
