Kevin has been the number one most valuable source for me as I develop a product for my business. I met him when he invited me to his Inventors Meetup Group in Raleigh, and his knowledge, expertise, and connections have been a tremendous help. He listens carefully, even when I can”t exactly explain what I’m trying to build. He asks the hard questions that encourage me to think deeper and consider other possibilities for the product. He has referred me to other contacts who have helped me work on other tools for my product and services for my business. I trust his advice and his experience, and I look forward to working with him on future projects. I highly recommend Kevin.

When I first met Kevin at Nomaco, Inc., I worked with him in his his capacity as technical manager for custom foam products. Together, we generated and sold many successful custom foam extrusions for a variety of OEM and toy manufacturers. Since then, Kevin has expanded his contacts and skills to encompass strategic level endeavors in the manufacturing and process improvement fields. Furthermore, Kevin is an outstanding networker, excelling at helping people to connect, should they have common interests and/or business needs. If you have a chance to work with him in his many skillful areas, you will not be disappointed with Kevin’s ability to encompass the many details and levels of a strategic level project.
Kevin is a strong analytical business manager with incredible insight into complex business problems. He is the type of consultant that will litterally role his sleves up, and get to work on the ground floor so that he really understands the business atmosphere and business market. He is an indespensable part of my business, and we are profoundly fortunate to be working with him at Palsie’s.

I’m very pleased to recognize Kevin Armstrong as an innovative, passionate professional who takes exceptional joy in helping companies, entrepreneurs and inventors move their products from concept to market. In addition to Kevin’s enthusiasm for the entire product development process, he brings an incredible depth of knowledge, experience and expertise to every project. Kevin has the rare ability to break major projects into managable parts and identify the requirements needed to accomplish each objective. I strongly recommend Kevin to any firm or individual that is interested in using a process-driven approach to launching or improving the physical creation and distribution of their products.
Kevin’s expertise, connections, and experience have always made him stand out to me. I initially met Kevin at a BNI meeting in 2011, and I subsequently attended his inventors’ meetup. Kevin is not just an “idea” guy; he focuses on the practical aspects of getting things done in an economical way.
I have been working directly with Kevin at Palsie’s popcorn for about 6 weeks as of this writing, and he helped them with their in-store and wholesale operations for the better part of a year before that point. He helped to streamline the inventory and set up the heat-sealing process that has helped to improve product quality, shelf life, and convenience for the customer.
I would highly recommend Kevin as a go-to resource for any business looking to scale up, grow sales, reduce costs, or bring a new idea to the marketplace.
Kevin had a strong committment to the voice of the customer. Team building, problem solving and project management were strengths he displayed.
Senior Sales & Marketing Management Professional

Kevin is one of the most experienced, caring, and customer service driven individuals I know. Most of what I know about the foam industry I learned from Kevin. He is highly motivated and listens to the customers and then thinks “outside the box” for creative solutions that meet the customer’s needs and always were profitable for Nomaco.
I would highly recommend Kevin to any company and hopefully sometime in the future I will be able to work with him again.

Kevin is an extremely detail-oriented, knowledgeable person with a truly compassionate heart for the customers’ needs. He is a quick study on new things. He applies his knowledge extremely well to solve problems, bring innovation to the table, and satisfy his customers. An organization that brings Kevin on board will certainly be getting a quality employee with a lot of passion for what he does.
I have known Kevin for several years and worked with him on various projects that required sourcing of products. In each case he presented extremely creative and cost-effective solutions.

When I started at Nomaco, Kevin was the lead product development engineer. He immediately impressed me with his depth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of product development and rollout. Most engineers I’ve worked with have a strong grasp of the technical side, but Kevin also had an excellent instinct for consumer drivers. Kevin is truly a ‘soup to nuts’ talent; from negotiating with global suppliers all the way through the product lifecycle to rollout and performance metrics. When I worked with Kevin his value was unquestioned and he was respected by all cross-functional teams. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kevin highly for any position around development or customer care.
I worked with Kevin on several Product Development projects and found him to be a knowledgable and always thouroughly prepared professional. He effectively managed several product launches from beginning to product launch and implementation.

Kevin is a very patient creative person that knows more about PE foam that anyone Nomaco has hired in the last 5 years. He was the heart and soul of the company and his drive will benefit his new company. I miss working with him.
