2. Acknowledgements
We would like to thank and acknowledge Mr. Kevin Blomeyer the managing director of Blomeyers electrical for sacrificing his company time by allowing us an interview with him, giving us as much information needed to complete our project. As we sat with him in our interview it was evident that, the three hours we spent with him cost him a great deal of money, there were several phone calls and staff walking in to ask him for direction or approvals for things needing to be done. None the less he still gave us all the attention we needed. His last words as we walked out of the office “remember to always thank God everyday for what he has done for you” we could not have had a better interview with anyone else. A very humble man of God!
