🔮 Do you like setup?
Job prep and machine setup are this young entrepreneur’s favorite machine shop task. It has to be…challenging, short-run parts are his business!
“New shops face high barriers to thriving. OEMs’ increased reliance on established and certified supplier networks keeps new shops from winning the kind of high-value work that can help them find stability and start to grow.” 😬
But Dan has found the winning formula. A combination of commitment, person-to-person relationships, and a dash of good luck. 🍀
Starting any business is tough (being a fellow founder, I can relate). But starting a machine shop with huge overhead and lots of entrenched OEM suppliers, it seems impossible. That’s what makes Dan’s story so interesting and inspiring. Rock on! 🤘
