Background

About Rich Hardy

I've been a Quality Manager for the past 6 years, primarily in steel production with 10 years overall in industry. Through this experience, I have had the opportunity to expand my knowledge in production, engineering, sourcing, sales, etc. I'm considered young in the field and am eager to use my skills, energy, network of customers and vendors to start a job shop type operation. My primary commitment will be to the organization rather than personal gain. I want to be able to take pride in the growth of the business and the prosperity of the employees.

Purchasing an existing manufacturing company with contracts, assets, and existing employees is the approach I am most interested in pursuing. The purchase price target will be in the $400,000 - $1,000,000 range.

I am seeking a partner with the same general philosophies to share half of the work load and principle investment. This individual does not necessarily need industry experience but must contribute equitably in finance, sales, marketing, etc. In purchasing the target company, I would be financing over the minimum down payment. I do have excellent credit and would require the same of a potential partner.
