“In a business world where companies, educational guru’s, and trade publications throw out the term “partnering” so often that the word looses the impact that it should have, I find that it is the only description that justifies the experience that American Digital Communications, Inc. has had with Don Bahr of Smooth Finish. He analyzed our level of knowledge, our product mix and our equipment in an instant and formulated a game plan that has proven to be the very center of our success. All the while he educated rather than holding our hands. With every challenge we faced or problem that needed solving, Don was at our door-step immediately with innovative ideas and, to be honest, hard truths that we needed to hear. He has always been a partner to ADC in every sense of the word.”

“Mr. Don Bahr represented a national graphic company, and I can testify that during that time, Mr. Bahr was always honest, trustworthy, and displayed the utmost integrity. Mr. Bahr always demonstrated loyalty for his company and at the same time was very supportive of his customers. The Salvation Army Southern Territory considers Mr. Don Bahr a very rare individual, to whom one can depend on.”

“Smooth Finish provided excellent service starting with great communications and follow-up in the scheduling process
and continuing through the entire process. The installation was exactly as anticipated, punctual and precise and the
training was informative and tailored to our needs. The online resources are great support materials that I will be able
to use again and again with new employees. Great job Smooth Finish!”
