Based in Fairfield, IA, The Sky Factory is a factory-direct product manufacturer and distributor that was founded in 2002. Despite major declines in new construction in most domestic markets in 2008 and 2009, the company grew revenues both years. This is perhaps more amazing considering that leadership runs the firm entirely by consensus, involving all 34 employees in all major decisions. Also notable for a company of its size is that The Sky Factory offers all of its educational programs – on topics including financial literacy, architecture and business writing – in-house.
