Rich has more than 25 years of experience in manufacturing, beginning as a CNC machinist and later as a mold maker and operations manager in the injection molding field. As a manager, he was always looking to improve processes to benefit the business and its customers.
That background means Rich has a solid understanding of the challenges that Bales customers face. He works hard to come up with solutions to meet their specific needs.
Outside of work, Rich was heavily involved in youth baseball and tackle football as a coach and board member when his children were young. Now that they are older, he's looking for new ways to be involved in his community.
