Tommy Kirk, COO of Alotech, Inc. has been chosen to speak at mfgCON 2016

COO of Alotech, Inc., Gold sponsor and exhibitor at the second annual mfgCON conference, will speak on “Funding Growth with Inventory and Contract Manufacturing.”

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Tommy Kirk, COO of Alotech, Inc. has been chosen to speak at this year’s mfgCON conference on October 18, 2016 at 1:15 p.m. The topic will be “Funding Growth with Inventory and Contract Manufacturing.” As successful organizations grow product sales, inevitably they come to a point where additional capital is needed to sustain their growth rate. Traditionally, that means giving up equity in the business or personally guaranteeing sizable loans. Kirk will explain how companies are now leveraging their existing inventory with contract manufacturing to sustain their growth curve without giving up equity in the company or tying up personal finances.

Beginning his career as a machinist, Kirk learned early on how to solve problems and cultivate his trade quickly. Soon he set a personal goal to own his own business. Soon after, he met his mentor and eventual business partner, Bill Murphy. Bill hired him as a General Manager of Alotech, Inc. and taught him the ins and outs of business ownership. Adopting Bill’s business philosophies to develop people not just products, Tommy and Bill have grown the company from 5 full time people generating $500k in sales to 50 employees with over $8.5m in sales.

The second annual mfgCON conference for manufacturing innovation kicks off in Greensboro, NC on October 18-19, 2016 at the Four Seasons. Provided by the North Carolina Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NCMEP), mfgCON provides a valuable forum to share practical advice and tips with world –class companies, and small emerging companies who exhibit and meet for two days of presentations and breakout sessions.
