Baxter Quadrants has been a family business for more than 50 years. We are sad to annouce that Rock Smith, our 2nd generation owner of the company who inherted it from Dick Baxter passed away on September 17, 2020. Ryan Smith, Rock's son, has inherted Baxter Quadrants making it now a 3rd generation compnay. Ryan will be putting in the same effort and love for the company and continuing on with its traditions, care, and quality of work that has been expected since the company started back in the late 1960's.
