“When we first looked at Rand back in 2017 we saw so much potential – a highly skilled employee base, loyal customers, exceptional subcontractors – they had all the parts, they just lacked the resource to pull it all together. It has been a lot of hard work, but thanks to the team at Rand we have made significant changes and come out with an improved outlook for the future. The possibilities are exciting.” Greg Wales, Managing Partner and CFO.
“We have a talented, resilient workforce, 2nd to none. A culture of quality, team work and a fierce desire to thrive.” said Jason Ruhlman, previous owner and now Program Manager of Rand Machine Products. “We are thankful for where we are and where we are going, knowing we get to do it together!”.
Rand says that customers have already benefited from the transition.
“The new ownership has embraced new and emerging technology. We have transitioned to a fully integrated, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system allowing us to manage our jobs more effectively, improving productivity, increasing efficiencies, streamlining our processes and providing our customers with better, faster, and more accurate delivery times.” Rachael Hasson, Quality Control, said.
President and CEO Kurt Grimm believes the transition shows that Rand is committed to change and evolve in the industries they’re involved in.
“The changes in the last year are driven by our renewed commitment to the industries we serve and our willingness to evolve with the times to meet their changing needs,” Grimm said. “I know where Rand was and see the path Rand is on now. With the hard work and dedication of our team I am excited to see how this company is propelled into the future and those on the ride with us.”
