Cossons Reopens After Fire

Since that time Clay Cosson, along with family and friends, have pulled what they could out of the debris and reopened their doors.

Salvaging what they could, they are now focusing their efforts on rebuilding the business to its former level. However that takes lots of money.

Cosson estimates losses at around a million dollars in tools and equipment as a result of the fire. The business office is now located in a building adjacent to the original location.

Clay Cosson says his plans are to have a new building by this winter. "I lost all my machining capabilities, my lathes, my milling machines and all that stuff I had. I'll get them back it'll take me a little while."

Right now his biggest obstacle is replacing his lost metal lathe and milling machines which were used to repair heavy equipment.
