The people who work here take great pride in what they do and I have been told by some of the staff that they “hope this is their last job.” We try to impart that sense of pride in every kayak we make.
A tangible way of communicating that pride is in part of the package we include with every new Folbot. There is a list of steps needed to make a Folbot and the crew member who took that step signs their name. As you can see, each kayak is made for a particular person.
I just received an email from a customer which included the following:
I laminated the inspection sheet that the boat came with that has the signatures of the folks who built the boat. The sheet stays with the boat now, and every time I use the boat I see their names and think of the care they put into the boat. Reminds me to take care of it too!
And on behalf of Mary, Viet, Phong, Ray, Herb, John, Lymus, Cindy, Lillian, Debra, Linda, and of course, Wanda, Phil and Tony… thank you.
