“I’m excited to join Ambassador Supply and work within the Steel Vertical Team,” said Richards. “Having spent over three decades in manufacturing, I’m eager to leverage my experience and meaningfully contribute to a company whose values align with mine.”

As Ambassador Supply continues to experience growth in the pole barn and metal building industry, the company is recruiting driven professionals who thrive in thinking outside the box and have a strong understanding of the industry.
