“We bought our first S-61 helicopter in 1986. From there, we continued to build, one step at a time. By the mid-1990s, we had four S-61s and six logging sites up and down the coast. We had a lumber manufacturing facility operating around the clock with 900 employees and were also firmly entrenched in the aviation industry.”
