Hot-dip awardee prevents corrosion

PBI Ross-Holm of Portales was a 2005 recipient of the Excellence in Hot-Dip Galvanizing — Food & Agricultural Award from the American Galvanizers Association.

Hot-dip galvanizing is the process of applying a zinc coating to fabricated iron or steel by immersing the material in a bath consisting primarily of molten zinc, which provides corrosion protection.

PBI Ross-Holm creates durable dairy equipment such as parlor stalls, gates and rails which are used for animal protection.

Re-Max opens Portales branch

Re-Max First Place Realtors has opened an office branch in Portales at 120 S. Ave A.

“We have a lot of business in Portales and we felt the desire to serve all of eastern New Mexico with a variety of offices,” said Clovis and Portales Re-Max qualifying broker and owner Wes Graham.

The Portales office hopes to eventually employ six to eight full-time realtors. The Clovis Re-Max office employs 25.

Home-based business opens

Clovis resident Jacqueline Davis has spent much of her life as a retail sales representative, a life that required her to travel extensively.

After much thought, she decided to start her own business as an independent Silpada Designs Representative.

According to Davis, Silpada Designs is a direct-sale company, one of the many growing home-based businesses, which offer an exclusive collection of handcrafted .925 sterling silver jewelry with natural and precious stones.

Silpada Designs, she said, offers quality sterling silver belts, watches and jewelry in designs from traditional to contemporary. She said prices range from $20 to $200 for special pieces.

Health products available online

Mercy King’s 9G Health Foods offers over 8,000 hard-to-find organic and natural products with prices similar to those of a food cooperative.

King said the family-owned business offers “pasture-raised” organic beef and “pesticide-free” vegetables.

Home items, hair care, body care, and vitamin supplements are also available.

Although she has paper catalogs available, King said she will do most of her business online.

Customers order through her Web site and orders are delivered to their homes each month.
