Description

This turn-key multi-faceted industrial design, fabrication and custom installation business was founded in 2003 and purchased by the current owner in 2007. They specialize in producing custom designed products engineered to meet strict safety related applications in large manufacturing and light industrial facilities around the US. Even though the business is located in Central Ohio they travel outside the state on a very regular basis performing installations on the components and assemblies they produce in their shop. They do remain flexible in the installation of their designs in order to meet production considerations that are not foreseen. 3-D designs are computer generated so that a customer is able to preview the proposed product/assembly before installation is performed. Prospective and existing customers often consult with this company onsite at their facility in order to review the production process and goals. It should be noted that this owner loves the design and engineering aspects of the business but really sees a value in working with a buyer who can bring in experience related to marketing and sales.
