In 1998, Chris Rader paired his deep roots in the lumber industry with his technology expertise to help lumber companies make higher profits. Within four years, he helped one of the companies go from $100 million to $650 million in sales, increasing profitability by $12.5 million. He helped the second company grow from $10 million to $100 million in sales and added $10 million to the bottom line. The increased sales and profitability began to draw attention within the industry. Shortly after the four-year mark, Fortune 500 companies purchased both of the smaller lumber businesses RADER helped.
In 2002, Rader hired his first employee and named the business Rader Solutions. He began to lay the groundwork for a more expansive technology business — and the company started to grow.
Since 2002, RADER has grown far beyond its roots and is now in 21 states, serving over 130 clients in multiple industries, and the RADER team consists of over 40 employees. We’ve expanded our offerings and services to meet our client’s needs in the ever-changing tech environment to include advanced technical support, effective communication options, strategic technological planning, and cybersecurity.
The RADER team is not your usual tech-geeky guys – we’re personable nerds. A perfect description coined by our senior tech advisor, Chris Monju. One is a former roadie for Britney Spears. Another operated a bulldozer. Two are former chefs, and another managed a pawn shop. Even so, our diverse backgrounds merge to form a spirited and talented team that can relate to our clientele.
