Fully Threaded Radio – A Test of Courage


Lessons of basic courage and practical survival unfold along with the story of a New York based fastener manufacturer during the outbreak, as told by Jason Wagner and Ilian Dimitrov of The Richard Manno Company, during a supplemental yet essential episode of the podcast.

10 Minutes with Jason Wagner and Ilian Dimitrov of The Richard Manno Co.


This was my first attempt at a two person interview and I couldn’t think of a better team to do it with. Jason Wagner and Ilian Dimitrov are respectively the Executive VP and General Manager of The Richard Manno Co. While The Richard Manno Co. has been around for many years, Jason and Ilian are the current management team and have been instrumental in taking the company “to the next level”.

The company was founded by Richard Manno in 1978 and sold to current owner, Vincent J. Manno in 2004. Richard eventually retired in 2009 and the company has continued to grow under the management team of Jason and Ilian. Through continuous improvements in their processes and investments in new facilities, equipment & personnel, the company continues to make every effort to “exceed customer expectations”. The Richard Manno Company is an ISO 9001:2015 and AS 9100 Rev D certified manufacturer. They are ITAR Registered as well as a QSLM/QSLD Class 2 government approved supplier.
