Attention to Detail: The Key to Finishing AG Composites Best-in-Class Rifle Stocks
The most successful college basketball coach of all time, UCLA’s John Wooden, once said, “It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.” Such is the philosophy of AG Composites’ highly skilled Stock Finisher, Blake Williams. An extremely difficult job that requires painstaking attention to detail, former U.S. Marine Williams has taken the position to a whole new level.
“My job as the Finish Technician makes me responsible for preparing rifle stocks to be painted and/or camouflaged,” Williams said. “It’s a job that requires a high level of attention to detail. By using a variety of hand tools and approved filler materials, I first look at each stock we produce to identify any blemishes or cosmetic defects. My goal is to repair the defect in a way that it will not be visible and cannot be felt when the stock is completed. The finished stock is then inspected by the quality control team, who will either pass or fail it. Should it fail, the technician and I will address the issues, fix them and turn it back in to be inspected again.”
Williams has been with AG Composites for four years. “I love working here,” Williams said. “We have a great team that is dedicated to making the best quality stocks in the business. The owners take great care of the employees and the company itself.”
Williams has been a shooter since early childhood when he got his first .22. and became a much more avid firearm enthusiast while in the Marines. He became familiar with AG Composites through a fellow Marine when he was working for a local moving company and doing some firearm refinishing and custom work on the side.
“I have always believed in hiring great people then giving them the freedom to do their job without micromanaging them,” said AG Composites owner Matt Tandy. “Blake is a huge asset to AG Composites. He is dedicated to his work, takes time during his day to teach employees, and is always thinking of ways to improve our product and process. While doing all this, he has fun and is a source of motivation. We are truly glad he is part of the AG team.”
