A Note from the VP of Client Success | July 2023

Summertime offers the hope for pool lounging, cookouts, and slowing down to enjoy nature’s beauty. At Manufacturer’s Edge, summer has been about expansion and growth.

We’re expanding our sales team to ensure that we can better serve you with a local resource. In July, we added Eric Seedman, a serial entrepreneur with expertise in accounting and account management to our team. (Get to know Eric!) Eric will be a Regional Director with a territory encompassing Denver, Jefferson County, and up to Grand and Jackson Counties. This means we’ll be shifting our other Regional Directors’ territories to be more compact and adjacent to where they live and work. Dana Schenhoffer will be managing our Northeastern Colorado territory encompassing Boulder, Weld, Larimer, Morgan and more. Jehrin Clark, is going to stay in the growing Denver East Metro Area with a territory which will cover Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas, Lincoln and other counties along the Kansas border. Finally, Beth Dickson will continue to focus on the Western Slope serving Mesa, Montrose, La Plata, Gunnison, and up to Routt counties to name just a few. Our final territory, Colorado Southeast, including El Paso, Pueblo, Chaffee, Rio Grande and more is being covered by Rob Newbold and Jehrin until later this fall when we anticipate adding a fifth Regional Director for this expanding manufacturing community.

Our team looks forward to making your acquaintance and building a strong relationship that has a value-added impact on your manufacturing business. With the strength of 1,400 Manufacturing Extension Partner experts around the country having over 18+ years of average experience in plants and over fifty locally vetted outside contractors, there is not a problem in your shop that we can’t find a resource for. Give us a try!

Clients have an opportunity to engage outstanding consulting resources through our Manufacturing Recovery Grant program in the areas of sales assessment, ERP evaluation and selection, Lean, Safety and Maintenance, and much more. Complete an application on our website and chose up to three preferences for a project; then invest just 25% of the total cost of $20,000 to receive top-notch resources in your facility right away. This is a limited-time offer, so please complete an application soon.

Our mission is to strengthen and grow the Colorado Manufacturing ecosystem. Through an investment by our National Network, Manufacturer’s Edge will be expanding our activities and staff around the Colorado Manufacturing Network. Currently, we are in the process of interviewing for a Supply Chain Program Manager, we’ve secured time and resources with a Colorado supply chain expert, and we’ll be engaging in a number of events, supplier mapping through Sustainment, risk assessments, and supplier scouting projects in the Aerospace and Semiconductor industries. If you are not a part of the Colorado Manufacturing Network yet, be sure to sign up for no cost to increase your potential for being found by buyers nationwide.

As you can tell, the growth and expansion of our team, our service offerings, and our Colorado manufacturing ecosystem are very much on our minds this summer. What can we do to help take one of the many hats you are wearing so you can focus on growing your business?
