On February 8, 1989 an early morning fire destroyed the building and office contents of B&B Welding Company., Inc.Bb1.GIF (21958 bytes)

As the news media questioned the status of our extensive computer system I realized the diskettes were stored nightly in the fire files.

Late in the day a fire inspector appeared at the scene. I confronted him concerning the files and he very carefully accompanied me into the burned premises. There amid the rubble stood our two Schwab files, their once shining black enamel finish was now blistered and buckled from the heat.  I inserted the key, pulled out the drawers one at a time.   The diskettes had not melted, all corporate papers were intact.

"Thank you Schwab you saved our business."

Mary Jo Bloom, President
