Lincoln, CA May 10, 2013: RobbJack Corporation, an employee owned manufacturing company, held a plant tour and employee meeting today in their Lincoln, CA facility for Senator Jim Nielsen, State Senate District 4.
Senator Nielsen and his Senior District Representative, Christine Rydell, were given a tour of RobbJack’s Solid Carbide End Mill and Slitting Saw production facility. The employees proudly displayed the variety of products and manufacturing methods used by RobbJack, and gave a demonstration of the way the tools are used as well.
