At this year’s BUILD23, Rudy Kadiric joined W&C for a sit down interview where he discussed what it meant for him to be on the cover of this year’s important March issue, the products he was impressed with on the trade show floor and despite a very dismal experience of traveling to Vegas, Kadiric made it to the show.

Kadiric’s history with W&C goes back several years. He was previously featured in our August 2016 issue. Then some hard times hit. However, he found his feet again, relocating from West Michigan to the Windy City.

After starting Horizon Interiors Inc. as a part-time business three years ago, Rudy Kadiric has drastically increased the amount of work the company has. At the time, Kadiric was working for a different company, but eventually found enough work for his side business to become his primary focus.

It has also become his workers’ priority. Some workers he has known in the past now work for him, and Kadiric is glad to be joined with them again.

“Our first-year revenue was about $75,000 in sales, while this year we are approaching $2 million of gross revenue,” says Kadiric, whose official company title is Managing Member.

Horizon Interiors, based in the Chicago area, performs carpentry, drywall and acoustical ceilings. The company also has some niche services, such as finish carpentry and millwork. This sets them apart from some of the other companies in the market.
