Two Simi Valley businesses have acted quickly to maintain their operations without interruption, despite severe earthquake damage. One firm, First Interstate Bank, chartered a fleet of buses to carry more than 500 employees of the bank's credit card center to Downtown Los Angeles daily. The three-story building that formerly housed the center has been closed indefinitely, "It was critical that the operation continue without interruption," said First Interstate spokesman Rich Wyler.

As he walked across the eerily empty factory floor of the Whittaker Corp. electronics plant in Simi Valley, Chief Executive Officer Tom Brancati kept juxtaposing the used-to-bes with the going-to-bes. * Whittaker used to do 70% of its business with the military. Today, government contracts account for only about 30% of the company's revenue. Next year, it's going to be 20%, Brancati said.

A year ago, GI Industries in Simi Valley had good news to report: Republic Waste Industries in Houston had tentatively agreed to buy GI for $3.50 a share, or a total of $15 million, in Republic Waste stock. For Republic Waste--a company twice GI's size--the purchase of GI was supposed to give it a beachhead in the Southern California waste-disposal market, because GI is the largest hauler of residential trash in eastern Ventura County with nearly 50,000 customers.
