COLUMBUS, OH - At Spectrum News 1 Ohio we like to celebrate the people who call the Buckeye State home.

That includes brothers Dana and Chet Peters. The two founded Milspin.

  • Dana and Chet both spent years serving in the United States Marine Corps.
  • Milspin is a veteran-owned and veteran-focused metal manufacturing company located in Columbus.
  • Some of the items they create include custom grill grates, hats as well as firearm and motorcycle accessories.

The company also hires veterans.

Zeek Perez is also a Marine Corp veteran and works as the shop manager.

"I'm a firm believer in if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life. I love working here," Perez said. "A lot of what we do, people just see a metal piece. People see the Marine Corps emblem or the Army emblem or the Navy emblem and to anyone else, it's just an emblem to them. To us, it goes a lot deeper than that."
