Message No. 10336, Started by ddelaiar on 01/10/03
So, the President just gave me a ring and is thinking about moving the production/plant area for our business and was wondering who would we call.  I told him that, with my limited knowledge (remember, I'm a ME), I'd say it would be an Industrial Engineer.  Am I correct in assuming that?

Now, with that in mind, and upon opening my mouth, I have now been given the task of finding a couple of local companies/contacts to start talking with.  Any idea of how to begin my search.  

I should have kept my mouth shut.  Like I don't have enough to do.  Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan DeLaiarro
