10 Years of Ultrapom: Year 10

Here it is!  2020! Our tenth year of Ultrapom! …which was pretty much entirely taken up by a world pandemic. 2020 rocked our business, and honestly it’s been a bit difficult to reflect on that year while it is still so close. 

The pandemic was particularly hard on the events industry – we are in the business of social gathering, so when people weren’t allowed to (or wanted to) do that anymore, we had no business.  We lost 60% of our revenue last year, compared to 2019, and spent a LOT of time rescheduling orders for events that got moved two and sometimes three times. 

But we survived, and took the opportunity to organize, work on our processes, and get rid of inventory and ways of doing things that did not serve us well. For years, we said ‘if only we could take a break for a few months so we can catch up on things!’ Last April and May, we did (though with most of our staff furloughed, we were limited with how much we could do).

Now, we are back, with most of our staff working again, and a bit of a leaner machine. 

I can’t believe I have been doing this for 10 years! From the second bedroom of my house in Downtown Overland Park, to a 27,000 sf warehouse in Downtown Kansas City, it’s been quite the journey. Helping people throw awesome events has been such a rewarding experience, but what makes it even more rewarding is all the amazing relationships I have formed over the years with my employees, clients and other industry professionals.

So here’s to 10 years!
