Clear Decision Filtrations
There are several businesses in the Francesville area that one may drive past and wonder what the place is all about. Head north on Bill Street, just past the town park in Francesville, and on the west side of the road you will drive past such a business, CDS or Clear Decisions Filtrations.
Owned and operated by Tony and Melanie Holliday, CDS is a distributor throughout the US and Canada, of large and small filters for equipment that handles liquids.
CDS currently employs 18 employees, many of whom are ladies that sit at a machine and sew seams on various size filters. One part time employee that has been with the company since it first opened, is Ray Cooley, who helps with day to day operations.
Clear Decision Filtrations production began in the fall of 2008. They celebrated their 10th anniversary last fall. It is clear that the Hollidays made a great decision with this facility as the business has grown enough to need an additional building which acts as a warehouse.
Tony states that one of his greatest needs is recruiting enough employees to keep up with demand. CDS recently purchased a robotic machine that helps speed up the sewing process, but the need for more employees is still a great concern.
