deBotech’s August 2019 Employee of the Month- David Laws

deBotech, Inc. would like to recognize our August 2019 Employee of the Month: David Laws

David has been a member of the deBotech team since April of this year his determination and work ethic was noticed from the get-go and has landed him the position of Production Supervisor.

His dedication to work is unlike any other. David ran into car trouble early last week living in Charlotte he knew it would be difficult for him to commute to work daily so he got a hotel located on Highway 150 which is roughly five miles away from our office. Locals know how busy HWY 150 is at all hours of the day. Not only, did David make it work on time each day, but he did so by walking!  We had no idea that this was the case because David never complained, to anybody and kept this to himself.

David, we recognize and appreciate your dedicated efforts and are so happy to have YOU on our team! Your personal commitment to Quality is obvious in everything you do! Thank you for going the extra mile *literally*.

deBotech hopes others are inspired by this man’s dedication to showing up, commitment to his job and team and most importantly his positive attitude despite obstacles.

Excerpt from USA Today….

“The Corvette has existed in a category all its own as an American car,” said Hagerty CEO McKeel Hagerty. “It’s a pretty magical story through and through. It’s very evident they’re about to do it again

“The ‘Vette, a Chevrolet model assembled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, is getting one of its biggest changes yet: The engine is shifting from underneath the hood to the middle of the car, making it a “mid-engine” car much like some of Europe’s speediest vehicles. That change is aimed at making the vehicle even faster and better able to navigate sharp turns.

How powerful is the 2020 Corvette?: Rumor is it was warping the frame in tests

But expect eye-popping numbers for the loaded editions, including a possible ZR1 supercar.

Rumors were flying earlier this year that GM had to delay the new Corvette because it was so powerful that its frame was warping in track tests. Industry observers have speculated that the high-flying version could achieve an astounding 1,000 horsepower.

The extra-powerful edition is sounding like an “unbelievable performer and fire-breathing monster,” Hagerty said.

2019 PERFORMANCE CAR OF THE YEAR THE MOST POTENT LINEUP IN THE HISTORY OF PCOTY FIGHTS IT OUT FOR THE CROWN.

 

It’s fitting, because the engine is a tornado and a half, more center stage in its home than any mill here. The ZR1’s 6.2-liter pushrod V8 uses the same basic construction as the one in the Z06, but it’s strapped to a supercharger with a whopping 52 percent more displacement. The blower looks like weaponized luggage and helps produce a linear fire hose of grunt, enough to spit the rear tires loose at highway speed. Like the Pista, the car fights for traction, but it also seems more encouraging and calm about its insanity. All capped by that devil-whoop exhaust note and a suspension tune that never prompts occasional moments of personal clenching. (This means you, Z06.)

Proud to be an American

Bill Cook, aka, Biker Bill is a new member of the deBotech team and veteran of the United States Armed Services.  Bill joined our team roughly 3 months ago as our Maintenance/Handy Man.  A friend had mentioned this great guy that was retired but wanted a job because he was used to working.  After meeting him, it was evident that he embodied the hard-working ethics that I admire, respect and want to spread to the younger generation.  He came to work the other day proudly flying the US red, white & blue in honor and memory of SSG Adam Lynn Dikemyer, Tomb Sentinel #528. It’s guys like this that make me proud to be an American & the reason I will forever stand for our National Anthem!
