My name is Eli Liechty and I am an engineer. I am an entrepreneur, a business-owner, an investor, a husband, and a father of four. I have been building things my entire life from tinkering in the tool shed to helping build, grow, and sell Rapid Quality Manufacturing (RQM), an advanced additive manufacturing business that revolutionized aerospace part-making. I currently own and operate Empower Manufacturing, a precision shaft maker for OEMs in the pump and motor markets. Apricus Capital Partners is a reflection of my values and goals, not just as an entrepreneur and investor, but as an active member of my community. At Apricus, we are solely pursuing long term investments in or close partnerships with small-to-medium sized private companies within the tri-state region of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
