Risks and rewards

When Dale Hagerty purchased Cabinets by Charron in Escondido, Calif., in 1979, the deal included a small customer base, some basic machinery and a few anxious employees. It was hard, even for Hagerty, to imagine that the business would prosper for another 31 years and counting.

Cabinets by Charron supplies cabinetry and millwork to its Southern California market.

"Thinking back now, I am quite surprised at some of the things that we were able to produce with what we had to work with," says Hagerty.
