Our company started from very humble beginnings in the early nineties. It was started by Cliff Green, and Dan Casper, both who had been in the valley for a number of years working in the field as a technicians and installers. They already were friends, and both had been working…. and ‘starving’ on their own, so one day they sit down and realized that each one had positive things they could bring to the table, if they partnered up.
