New building owners. Raised lease 22%. Randy said no. Now he's selling off equipment because moving is expensive, and he doesn't have another location lined up.
As far as selling parts, he said it will be halted temporarily.
Tough situation, and he's still a few years away from retirement he mentioned as well...

God bless these people, And family, and what they have done for us.
Thank you DAD.
Precision machining is hard to come by these days.
Now it is gonna b even harder to find quality machining in that area, I am sure.

Hes quite stressed with trying to handle closing his business and selling off equipment within a short time period. Closing his business of 31 years takes its own emotional toll as well. I will say though that the positive words from the starquest community are certainly a ray of sunshine on a gloomy day.
(I'm Randy's son btw, haven't been around here in years)

Randy, you have always been beyond great with service, parts or just helpful advice. We all wish there was a way you could work it out with the new owners. I get it though, in the end it is a business and when it isn't profitable anymore you have to do what you have to do.
Best wishes you to and yours my friend!

I can appreciate how disruptive losing your shop can be to the business...... I had a shop fire on Thanksgiving and had to vacate the building myself..... 2 SQ cars got smoked.
Stay strong Randy
