If you’ve ever visited an architectural millworks operation and wondered just how they keep everything in check, on time, and on budget, (without a major meltdown), then you need to have a look at Mission Bell Mfg. in Morgan Hill, California. If you want to see a perfect example of the “Perfect Business Model” that all the local business journals across the country lament about, Mission Bell should be on your visit list. Even if you don’t live or work in the San Francisco area the story of this company and the Scianna family is an inspiring read. Just take a few minutes and view some information on their website…. especially in their “Who We Are” page. This, my friends, is what successful entrepreneurship is all about. This is proof that doing the right thing and truly living by the set of values you espouse pays off.
The pics you’ll see below are of a renovation project they supplied wall covering for using reclaimed woods including Greener Lumber caribbean pine and bullet tree. The 445,000 square foot project location is a shop and office space building in downtown San Francisco that started out as a warehouse built in 1917.
