Climbing the ladder of business ownership
“The Chemeketa SBDC is like a business partner holding us accountable for growth.” -Tara Kramer, MELTAR Supply
When Tara Kramer began Ri-Ky Roofing in 2007, she was a single mother working in a troubled U.S. economy.
After climbing up the ladder of a highly-regarded roofing company – working as a receptionist, marketer, roofer and project manager – she learned every aspect of the roofing industry and knew she could provide quality products and services in the Pacific Northwest.
“It’s because of the Chemeketa SBDC I was able to open a second business, Ri-Ky Materials. The advising, market research, SCALE and SBM programs have been invaluable.”Back to Business Support
