The days at Hillside Salvage, LLC in Tigerton, Wis., can be hectic, and co-owner Lor’ell Rademacher admits that she occasionally wishes for a lifetime trip to a remote island. “But then I get real,” said the 12-year industry veteran. “This industry gets under your skin. It gets in your soul … I can honestly say that I cannot see myself doing anything else.”
