A customer came to HMC Performance Coatings with a routine request: refurbish an antique bed frame. CEO Amie Tripp-Bristol said that a few days after the project headed out the door, she received a care package of baked goods, along with dog treats for the family Weimaraners. Tripp-Bristol also learned that the frame supported the woman’s childhood bed and she was utilizing the bed again — after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.
