How long have you been a BAMA member?  2 Years

What do you like most about being a BAMA member?  The chance to network with other local manufacturers which have the potential to become vendors or clients.

Tell us about your company? We are a manufacturer and distributor of filtration and screening products used by many industries.  We started out focusing on food processing and woodworking but have branched out to many other areas including building materials manufactures, tissue banks (used for transplants), pharmaceuticals and much more.  Something in our product line is used in a majority of manufacturing processes and we keep coming across more industries that we can help.

What do you consider your greatest accomplishment to date?  Thriving through the pandemic due to our ability to use all the resources at our disposal to keep our people working.  We pivoted our product line to help plug the gaps where we had lost business.  There was so much uncertainty yet we found a way to not only make it through but to grow the business as well.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?  Good times will come and when they do put something away for the bad times.  This has helped us thrive through a major recession and the Covid crisis.

What is the most important skill you have developed in your career? The most important skill I have developed in the last 20 years of working here is to not be afraid to take calculated risks.  Starting out we were extremely conservative with deploying capital so much so that it hampered some of our early growth.  I now have the confidence that we can bring on new product lines and that we will be successful.  As clich√© as it sounds it is grit.  You have to power through to see your goals realized  so you should not hesitate to take the first steps once you have done your research 

What are your hobbies or interests? I have young children so most of my hobbies revolve around them and the sports and school work.  I love golfing, fishing and working out and as I get older fitness has really become a huge part of my life.
