Question & Answer: Kenny Belt of Wits End Fabrication
Q:How did you arrive at running this business? What path brought you here?
A:Wits End Fab started as a hobby (2007-2011). I was always “tinkering” with things, constantly working on anything that I could get my hands on. I was the “go to” guy for people who were at their “Wit’s End” with projects and automotive problems. My wife came up with the name after watching the pattern for years (2012-2013). It wasn’t long until Wits End Fab consumed the lives of the people around it. As the work load increased, friends would help with anything they could. In no time at all, what was once a hobby, turned in to a full time operation (2013-2014).
