Hi everyone,

 

My name is Tom and I am from Springfield Mo.  My friend and supervisor at my night job owns a local golf course and we are opening a water bottling plant. 

 

My background is in machining and I have been working in that field for 27 years and am currently a Quality Technician.  I run and do light programming on a Coordinate Measuring Machine.

 

I currently know nothing about food quality or working with the FDA except what I picked up from the week long HACCP class we took in Las Vegas.  I am off to a great start because the first thing I did here was download a HACCP excel spreadsheet that is going to make a really good template for us.

 

Our current level is we have a building up and they just finished paving the parking lot today.  Our water line is supposed to start arriving next week.  I am looking forward to helping set it up and running through the process with the people the supplier is sending down for set up and training. I am sure I will run into questions getting everything up and running and this looks like it could be a really good resource for answers.

 

Tom

Hi Tom,

 

Welcome to the Forum ! :welcome:

 

I suggest you should already be also thinking about the waste disposal aspects.
