Three Montana manufacturers, presenting at the Compete Smart Conference in Missoula, struck upon a theme in talking about their companies and why they have been successful. "It's the people," they said.

"I'm a true believer that any business, even if they have only one person working for them, owes the people," said Brit Fred, Founder and President of Northwest Factory Finishes in Bonner, located just east of Missoula.
