Imagine a sheet metal prototype shop that was so fast and reliable it never turned down a job if it were physically possible to complete and the customers were willing to pay the price.
My guest today, Jay Jacobs, built his former company RAPID from a team of five to over 300. Before being acquired by a publicly traded company for a price he couldn’t refuse, RAPID was manufacturing over 30,000 unique part numbers annually, 24-7-365 days a year.
Then Jay co-founded Paperless Parts, a cloud based estimating and quoting software platform.
On today’s show, Jay is going to tell us how he scaled his company and how a job shop can make bold delivery promises like Domino’s Pizza.
Disclaimer, I didn’t say the parts tasted good.
Jay also hosts an excellent podcast called the Job Shop Show
