local small business By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer New Braunfels and Comal County have seen several large companies move into the area during this past year much to the pleasure of local officials because these large companies bring a good tax base and a heavy number of new jobs But often overlooked in among the large businesses are the smaller businesses long called the backbone of American business DiamondRite Products Inc is one example The local company began in the 1960s with the Wersteipher family Basel and Suzi Boatright bought it about five years ago What first started as a retail

given the expanding business climate in this area So much opportunity in fact that Hay left his 10year job as an accountant in Houston to run this part of the family business For a young businessman like myself I like the progress in this said Hay who grew up in New Braunfels Some people tell me they want to move because New Braunfels is losing that smalltown envi ronment But I like it Ive got a family to Hay said 90 percent of the new jobs in this country are created by small business When he started last February the commercial cleaning department had about seven people full and parttime That number is now 20 On the other band new businesses have a failure rate of more than 80 percent For small businessmen like Hay there comes a risk with the challenge the greater the risk the greater the and also the greater risk DiamondRite cleans everything from carpets to upholstery in residential places but the prospects in the commercial cleaning jobs are numerous Hay said be could focus his
