CHEYENNE – When TBC Manufacturing lost its local supplier for heat treating, owners Jeff and Karri Siebert saw an opportunity to bring those services in house and to escape Colorado’s strict policies, which Jeff said were friendlier toward marijuana users than small businesses.

After extensive conversations with Cheyenne LEADS – the economic development corporation for Cheyenne and Laramie County – the Sieberts decided Cheyenne was the place to continue growing their three-generation family business that began in Fountain, Colorado.
