Safe Zone Inc.

Safe Zone Inc.

Owner: Gloria Schinkal Address: 7613 Hardin Drive, Sherwood, 72117, 835-9693 Start-up date: April 8

After suffering a stroke, Gloria Schinkal retired from nursing.

A friend convinced her to begin a new career that provided the challenge of nursing without the physical strain.

For six years, Schinkal worked for manufacturing and distribution companies, learning the art of highway sign production. In April, she started her own company.

Safe Zone Inc. of Sherwood manufactures and installs traffic signs for city and county road departments and construction signs and barricades for highway contractors.

Schinkal, 48, says it was difficult getting her business off the ground.

"It's real hard being a girl in a good-old-boy system," she says.

With 70 clients following five months of business, Schinkal seems to have weathered the storm.
