I hate to disappoint...it's the same gang! While not quite as dysfunctional and a little less yelling than OCC, with fifteen views and opinions, we certainly have our own challenges. At some point we will have a Waterford virtual tour so you can see for yourselves. Until then, we love having visitors.
Here's the jist: Waterford is owned by Richard Schwinn and Marc Muller. Their passion leads a proud, dedicated 15 individuals that work their butts off hand crafting our products and telling the story. The only difference to us between Waterford & Gunnar brands are: specifications, protocols and intended market. They all get the same love.
Being as this is WI and the bike industry, let's just say the appropriate amount of brew gets consumed (not in the factory). Many of us are fans of the fermented grape as well.
Thanks for the kind words!
