In 1974, our CEO, Kevin Harberts, experienced a turning point in his life when he was fired from his high school job. It was that moment, all those years ago, that set our innovative leader on his new journey and lifelong endeavor in manufacturing. Looking back, Kevin says losing that job was one of the best things that ever happened to him.
In 1981, at age 25, Kevin was part of a three-person group that founded Iowa Metal Spinners, Inc. Working hard to operate and build the business by day, and raising two young daughters with his wife by night, Kevin’s steadfast mentality of “don’t ever quit” led the company towards being the innovative manufacturing solutions provider it is today.
