Working in the manufacturing and fabrication business for his entire career, Ron Christensen always dreamed of taking the next step and owning his own business. Using the services of Guidant Financial to fund his new venture, he finally took the leap from employee to employer and purchased West Central Hollow Metal Manufacturing.

“I was at a point in my life where I wanted to make my own decisions and be independent,” Christensen said. “My only regret is [that] I waited too long.”

West Central Manufacturing creates custom and standard steel doors, door frames and window frames for commercial buildings. Starting with a flat sheet of steel, West Central’s engineers shear, punch, bend and weld the material to make the finest of hollow metal products.

While discussing ways to finance his business purchase, Christensen’s business broker suggested he contact Guidant Financial. With the firm’s help, Christensen was able to invest funds from his retirement account in his small business. Now, the new entrepreneur enjoys the freedom of being his own boss and working with his team to make quality products for his distributors.

Outside of metal manufacturing, Christensen enjoys spending time in the great outdoors. His favorite activities are fishing, hunting, outdoor sports and camping with his family.
