From 1989. Such a great story and such a sad ending for the founders.

Nice article Richard. I lived up the road in Rochester, Vt in the mid 70's & knew Duncan pretty well while he was brain storming all this. Three of us did all the sheet rocking, in the then new factory in Randolph when it went up. It was state of the art for the area. Warren,Vt was right at the base of the Sugarbush ski area access road-real interesting area back when. Thanx for the post my older friend--got me to remembering some real outstanding times. :D

Great article; never had a VC, but someone posted a pic (maybe you) a year or so ago on the VC ash pan design for preventing dust migration - what a great system.
