And Clark-Reliance continues its growth. Currently, the company is constructing a 22,000-foot expansion to increase office and manufacturing space.

Employees applaud this family-owned business for incorporating employees into the family stating, “It is a family-owned company, and we all treat each other as family members.” Perhaps this is even better summarized in the company’s charity.
