What can the city let's talk a element I I love Kansas City and people ran homer wonder whether I'm ever gonna come backer not it is a great city a loss of opportunity the people on the culture year.

So what exactly does your business model looked like he does support the automotive industry how how does that look like on a daily basis on in the in the calling. Services. Part of our business which is is which is our main focus right now in in Kansas City is more towards. Any of the -- system services that we have so if if there's problems with parts were anything that they have. With the OEMs with a tier ones but I heard the VA's where we have the he has some assembly being done. Wore an extension of the OEMs with Morelli and can handle it I'm really stupid that's that's the Fairfax -- -- -- assembly pan out -- GM -- out of -- with GM Rick right now.

That they can have the support here when when the line and is there a part in the parts and the parts that. Are all in good standing and and we are we to win there late when I called swat teams. And we get the problem from salt fixed and the guy and the line he really gets a good part every single time so that's that's -- they depend on us more. At the end of the day you are really insuring people's safety I could make it sound very grandiose and and you know wonderful invalid it really is super important nobody wants it to go. 3000 pound best BO plaza like that moment and a daughter just started to drive so that's what we call -- my house of death vehicle because. I'm just going to scare the stuffing out America but you are you really are ensuring people's safety your company. A pretty much in we're actually is some some of the results and information and data that we provide. It goes to the JD power. As far as the outperformance of the vehicle. Soul. In in the safety and you all around and that. -- -- Greg he's got Canon US partnership begins practicing about that the difference is that what goes and -- -- the United States. Differences we can't in the United States. Well what what we're standardizing. So when you know one of the things that says they were doing. Throughout our organization is developing all of our policies procedures and stare operate operating systems. Solve that so we're transparent to. Anybody no matter you know where were -- I'm underwent when it when -- come to differences between then the manufacturing in the OEMs each one of them has their own uniqueness. So whether I'm down in that Spring Hill Tennessee your whether I'm in Kansas City. -- we're a company that you know we strive to get the needs of the customer. So each one of them is unique -- -- -- finding is with General Motors or Ford or Chrysler whoever -- with at the time. It's it's our job to develop our systems in order to meet their requirements. We're talking to Greg -- -- TFT global -- TT global dot com with dozens but he also is clearly -- -- also is the owner. Of the Shawnee expressed pros office. The Greg you guys talk a little bit about our new website about the containment. Validation process it's a signature process that you -- what exactly does that mean and how does it benefit hearing customer. That's says that's errors start to finish. Really what it is. Anybody in the called durable words certainly. Like this what what we do is is we break down the system and when we find that there's there's a problem with it within a parts or or process. Who we develop the advanced all the planning part of that's. We ask all the right questions develop although that the right instructions. As if you're manufacturing that part only when Paul what we're doing is actually creating a sub component of that and saying how can we fix this part how we get it back into. Standards and compliance and ask all the right questions train all the people. I get them up to speed on on how to do it the tools required to do -- the specifications required to do it's. So it really is the entire process is if you're manufacturing. Manufacturer going through that. We knew that every single time every single part every single job. -- -- that -- -- were real excited to have you Kansas City if you can tell us a little bit which -- present ladylike and can't see in the future. I -- in the future you all how I guess. I'm optimistic very very optimistic and in what like I said earlier is is there's a lot of opportunity here in Kansas City. I was you know pleasantly surprised not all of -- automotive presence -- in and end of the tier ones and in other areas much. You know with with new launches in new vehicles. That are out there are coming up in the in the near future from some of the facilities around here. That drives us to more business and bring an hour and a at a steady state. Right now you know around 12230. Employees through Kansas City. We're up to a 191 time for a little bit here for a lot in and again it's a supply and demand thing. So when there's new vehicles that are that are coming don't surf to the the consumer. We spent a lot of time in the development and prototype being of of low so we know if there's any rework server farm insert or engineering changes we heavily involved with those things and help them through the launch of Latin. That's when army and power usually escalates and at that time period and it's usually. It's usually curve that happens road a year or so. I think in the next probably. Twelve to 24 months will probably double in size in this area for potential job seekers what does that look like what are the positions that they'd be doing -- and how does that work. Well yeah we day M we have. At and infrastructure that's when when we get involved with these projects. We have to assign the appropriate staffing to that so. As as it grows so we we multiply in the same. Positions. So if there's supervisors that are out there and court project coordinators are out there are all these specialists that are out there. But take both of skill set is definitely something that we were looking for. Management staff you know he you know one as we drove. You know another compare more areas. This first management's concerned we we actually have twice as much management around the the support that as well so. It's all the support staff it's all the technical skills staff that's this and -- the worker bees that are out there that. You know we we -- the volume of.
