GARY GRANT – Corn Products International says;

A stand alone 8′ x 13′ tornado shelter was purchased in 2009. While fulfilling all the safety & corporate requirements, the shelter was on budget, on schedule, good design coordination, & straight forward to assemble with good product support. A project manager could not ask for more. When another shelter is necessary, we will call Remagen.

GLEN A. GOENS, DEPUTY DIRECTOR, CEM – Butts County Office of Homeland Security, Butts County Fire Marshal, CFI says;

…the Safe Rooms that your company has built for us are great. The protection that these buildings serve for our employees can’t be put into words. Thank you.
