After 15 years in software sales, operations, and other leadership positions, Kyle Cleaver was ready for a new challenge. So, naturally, he purchased a metal fabrication shop. That wouldn’t be particularly noteworthy, except that he had no previous experience in the industry whatsoever.
“My father-in-law has been very successful in fabrication and manufacturing for the past 40 years. In speaking with him, I began to investigate the industry, and the more I learned, the more interested I became,” he explained.
So, in 2019 Cleaver purchased AmTech Manufacturing in Fort Worth, Texas. With more than 30 years of combined experience in the metal fabrication industry, the company provides a variety of services, from fiber and CO2 laser cutting, bending, milling, welding, and painting to powder coating. It serves customers in such industries as industrial machinery, oil and gas, automotive/trucking, construction, health care, and warehouse/retail.
