Soon after graduating college, Nick started his career at Menards and worked his way up to be the Department Manager. Nick decided he wanted to change his career path and accepted a position at Action Fabricating as a buyer. This introduced him to the steel industry and his passion for it grew. He wanted to expand his purchasing and steel knowledge so he transitioned to True North Steel as a Buyer.
