We were very pleased to build the Cartwright Valley Meat facility in Grants Pass. What a fantastic family business! Even though modest in size, this is one of those projects that really brings home the importance of small and family operated businesses in a community.

Over the course of construction Michele Cartwright documented the progress in their company blog. You can read the whole thing, or here are some links to some of our favorite posts.

Medford’s Mail Tribune reported on Russ Batzer being appointed by Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski to serve on the Oregon Small Business Advisory Council. According to the govner the  Council “members bring a critical perspective to the table. They are my eyes and ears out in the small business community,” he said.

Russ Batzer is president of Batzer Construction and has worked with hundreds of businesses throughout Oregon.    Russ’s term is three years and he expects to hold various town hall meetings to hear from the small business community and take that information back to the Advisory Council to make recommendations to the Governor.
