“Strombeck is constantly looking at measurements of success and opportunities for change.”
Founded by Bryan Earnest in 1994, Earnest Products provides high-quality sheet metal fabrication and other related services. They operate out of their 240,000 sq. ft. facility in Central Florida, where they fabricate custom metal parts for a multitude of industries.
Having been through a number of accounting firms and firing their CFO, Bryan was introduced to Rick Strombeck. “What struck me about Rick right away was his confidence and boldness,” says Bryan. “He asked questions about my business and my goals… much more than what an accountant would ask or be concerned with.”
In the past 4 years, the company has doubled in size and has increased their manufacturing capacity from a 60,000 sq. ft. operation to an enormous 240,000 sq. ft. warehouse. Strombeck played a key role in Earnest Products’ growth through the Ultimate CPA and Flexfit CFO services, including guidance on important business decisions and assistance with the warehouse purchase negotiations.
“Rick is so much more than an accountant, he’s more of a business advisor, but even more than that–he understands small business and that owners wear a lot of hats,” says Bryan. “I have recommended Strombeck to quite a few other business owners. If they don’t know how to get funding or don’t know how to develop a family business, then they should contact Strombeck.”
