Speaker Biography
As president of Freedom Finishing, Gloria Ender’s contributions to the local economy through job development and business growth make a difference in the lives of many.

 Freedom Finishing, Inc ., was started in 1992 and in 2001 they expanded the company’s capabilities to electrocoating. Gloria’s and Erik’s company started mainly due to the rapid advancement in the sophistication and practicality of powder application.. Freedom Finishing was in danger of closing its doors due to overseas competition and the economic downturn after September 11. Through her perseverance and leadership, Gloria helped her company through the tough times and returned it to prosperity. Not only are they looking to expand their facilities this year, they expect to increase sales by 25 percent, and add another 10 employees by year’s end.
