If you are coming West bound 267 take the 606 westbound (2nd exit) and it will be your 1st light lake a right and then your first right and I am the first door to the building. I will have my white F150 with Johnson Controls on the sides parked out front.
The door to the office may still have SimplexGrinnell in blue letters.
Pm me and I’ll send you my number and you can call me for directions.
