Personally, my WHY is to serve God every day by serving others. For my day job, I exist to educate American manufacturing companies on automation systems they can invest in which will make manufacturing easier for their company. These systems will help improve the financial health of their business and be a catalyst for growth. A healthy, growing company has a better chance at improving the lives of its employees and ultimately strengthening our country.

Companies in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Michigan who are manufacturing products using sheet metal panels. They could be OEMs who make products out of sheet metal panels such as steel doors, food equipment, appliances, metal cabinets, tool-boxes, metal office furniture, HVAC units, electrical enclosures, etc. Or job shop/contract manufacturers who make parts or products for these OEMs.

Describe How You Would Like To Be Introduced Via Email
I’d like you to meet Dave Crookham. Dave works for FaST Machine Tools and represents Salvagnini for Intelligent Sheet Metal Blanking and Bending Automation Systems. After speaking with Dave, I think there might be synergy with the systems he is offering and the products your company is manufacturing. At a minimum it's probably worth a conversation to see.
With your permission, I would be happy to make an introduction.
