20+ Years truss industry experience from Design Manager to Owner/GM of a $7M truss manufacturing company. Turned a plant hemorrhaging money into an extremely profitable facility, earning an 51% ownership stake in the company. I managed all aspects of the company from production and admin to Human Resources, design, and sales. P&L responsible for the financial management of lines of credit, accounting, and analysis. Worked directly with major accounts, trained and supported sales manager and staff. Developed market focus and worked closely with sales manager to support technical and design areas of expertise.
Organized manufacturing systems and procedures to control costs and quality, oversaw buying to keep costs at a minimum and inventory lean but available. Developed LEAN procedures that minimized labor steps, eliminated duplication between stations, and made sure that safety procedures and reporting requirement were maintained. Overall, I had a hands on role in all areas of the company to make sure it operated efficiently and very profitably. Market conditions and competition from larger competitors ultimately required us to close the company.
