Photo(s) of the Day II: Tamea's New Digs

After nearly two years of fussing and fighting with various regulatory agencies and government bodies, Global Metalfinishing owner Tamea Woodward has finally opened the new shop in Roanoke--without inviting Roanoke officials to the celebration.

Woodward invested between $1.2 million and $1.3 million in the building and equipment and has added a number of employees. She started the project--which is an offshoot of her other business, East West DyeCom--with seven employees and now had 18. She hopes to have 26 in the next 24 months.

These pictures show Tamea with eight-year-old granddaughter Leilani Pickens, an impressive young photographer, at the opening a little while ago. And they show that Tamea will dress up in heels for any occasion, including the opening of a factory.
