Default UL Site inspection -- passed!

I am proud to say that FB had the Intertek/UL site inspection at our warehouse in Windsor, CA today, and we passed! Very exciting news. I still cannot prediction that date that our ovens will be listed, but this is the final step we had to go through.

Wahoo!
James

Congrats James. Having dealt with a lot of goverment and regulatory agencies I know that passing the inspection is a tribute to your determination and patience. I know some great products that do not have someone at the helm who can shepard their company through the required maze.

Great Job ! My hats off to you.
