What persuaded me to return was the unprecedented opportunity from the business coming back to this country and we’re positioned perfectly to take advantage of it.

Today, there’s tremendous manufacturing capacity available in this country and we’re one of the few manufacturing companies standing. We’re going to offer our domestic clients the most flexible, fastest, competitive, and highest quality service by focusing on production, service, and innovation.

I’m excited to run a company again that I co-founded. I’m returning after four years of my departure with the same commitment, passion, and new ideas.
I have also developed global relationships, which we will utilize in our global sourcing strategies moving forward.

We are also very pleased to announce that we have retired over $840,000 in notes payable in July of this year. This improved our working capital position from a negative ($652,000) to a positive $32,000 and brought our net worth positive for the first time in over 6 years.”
