Peggy Kovling

Peggy Kovling credits her numerous years with Belden, a major cable manufacturer, for her extensive working knowledge of cable and her acumen with customer relations.

With her focus on quality control systems, she addresses what she considers to be her customers’ chief concerns—accuracy, consistency and an order placement process that is as simple and painless as possible.

With a long, tested background in engineering and machine design, it’s no surprise that Rick Kovling has a head for designing mechanical things. In fact, he’s good at putting pen to paper on anything technical. So, soon after ACI opened for business, it became obvious the Rick was the man to pin down the details of day-to-day operations. At first he worked on ACI’s accounting after hours and on weekends. But the company grew fast, and before long Rick moved into the corner office full-time.

Rick’s chief concerns are competitive, fair pricing and mandating adequate lead times to ensure a quality product. “Demanding customers continue to want their products faster. I’ll go that extra mile to guarantee that all orders are shipped without defect and on time.” With strong scheduling and supervisory skills, his focus is on getting the job done, and done right the first time.

Though Cu enjoys snaring a fish or two in his free-time, he rarely takes vacation. It’s plain to see, Cu doesn’t work to live, he lives to work. His drive and single-minded focus on the ACI customer’s satisfaction has made him one of the Company’s most treasured assets.
