Kevin Hartford and Ed Newell started their business, Alle-Kiski Industries, in 2005 with loans guaranteed by the SBA. A year later, a second SBA loan was granted to buy the building that houses their manufacturing shop.  But in 2008, Kevin and Ed saw the economic downturn coming when business at their company took a turn for the worse. Layoffs soon followed along with pay cuts and many sleepless nights.  But alas, this story has a happy ending and Ed and Kevin are proud to announce that the first quarter of 2011 was their best ever and the two even received a personal visit from Karen Mills, Administrator of the SBA.  Join us for this special episode as Ed shares their personal story of recovery.
