A quick (Summit Materials) update

summit-materials-sm-100-knifeAs I’ve gotten countless requests and well wishes over the past couple of years, I feel that I owe a brief update on my doings. We formed an advanced manufacturing and materials company, Summit Materials, in mid-2009 focusing on near-net shape manufacturing to save our customers 30% and we have developed an alloy, SM-100(TM), that provides a unique combination of excellent corrosion and wear resistance at the same time. It is used in applications ranging from knives to bearings to firearm components.

So that is what’s been keeping me so busy. I’ve never worked so hard in my life, but I’ve never been more professionally happier at the same time.

I hope to get back to this blog soon, as I truly do enjoy it as an outlet and miss the community that grew around it. Perhaps I’ll broaden the scope to include lesson learned from my start-up experiences as well as what it’s like to drum up sales for a completely new product and process.

This site is for sale!!

CB025587I eluded to some big news some time ago and it’s finally coming to fruition. As like many of you I’m sure, I try to have several irons in the fire at any one time. One of these irons appears to be glowing so hot that it is consuming my time – not to mention I have a 3 year old and a 3-week old at home.

As such, I’m at a point where I need to make some difficult decisions. One of which is to let this site go – the site where I cut my teeth in the online world and made so many great friends.

I’m not going to go into details of the stats here (other than to mention that my download list is about 1,000 people) and I have no price in mind. But if the content is of interest to you or you think it would appeal to your customer base, drop me a note and I can give you the skinny on the site.

I’ll keep posting until it sells or I decide to change my mind.
