“The guys have built a phenomenal business, going far beyond just manufacturing, through its supply chain management services. Their growth is a true testament to the vision of the team,” said Chris Hart, Partner at KLH Capital.

Hart added, “Management has done a terrific job shaping the Company for continued success, and we look forward to providing the resources to support them as they take the Company to the next level.”
