Manufacturing Month Highlight: Wayne Clark

Governor Hickenlooper proclaims October as Manufacturing Month. This is an opportunity to recognize the important role manufacturers make for a local economy.  In honor of this proclamation, we would like to showcase one of our local manufacturing heroes here in Bennett.  

Wayne Clark has two manufacturing businesses here in Bennett as well as a party and catering supply company. The first manufacturing arm is Sports Fence International. Through this business, he manufactures the plastic fencing seen at Bennett Days and at the ballparks. This business manufactures fencing panels that are sold across the nation.  

On average Clark produces 1000 panels a year and distributes them as close as Bennett, and as far as California. The sports fence arm of Clark's business has been in operation since 2006. 

Also manufactured by Clark are Shooting Bench USA benches. This manufacturing arm of his ventures started in the late 1990's.  Approximately 125 benches are manufactured per year. These benches are used by numerous 4H, Skeet, and Trap shooting outfits across the nation. 

Clark also runs Blue Sky Party Rentals, which has been in operation since the 1980's. Blue Sky provides party and catering supplies for large and small-scale events. 

To learn more about Clark's business ventures please visit his website www.blueskypartyrentals.com.

Fiber Broadband Project Nears Completion

Eastern Slope Technologies, LLC. recently completed the construction of a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and advanced fiber technology project in the Bennett Exchange. This 2-year, $12 Million upgrades to the network included the buried placement of 380 miles of fiber. 
Business and homeowners are using technologies that require more and more bandwidth. Fiber optics is the only medium that can keep up with the bandwidth demand. A single hair-thin optical fiber can carry up to 1,000 times as much information as copper (traditional telephone network material) or co-ax (traditional cable television network material). Fiber networks are extremely reliable and can carry multiple voice, data, or video streams into the same house at the same time. 

ESTech, LLC has a proven track record of building, operating, and maintaining high-quality communications services - now and in the future.  For more information on the fiber update visit  www.esrta.com or call the business office at 1-888-999-3778 with questions or to sign up for fiber broadband.
