KEY PERSONNEL

Tyler Harrell – President

College:  Pittsburg State University

Tyler has been an Entrepreneur as long as his family can remember. Growing up in the agriculture industry working within his family Case IH business, Tyler learned how to work on equipment, sell parts, and just about everything to do with driving large equipment!  Engineering school made sense with his diverse background of working on equipment, and the love of building and creating things. Tyler Graduated from Pittsburg State University with a Degree in Plastics Engineering Technology in 2001. Right out of college he spent time at a product development firm in Kansas City for 5 years. During the 5 year initial stint, Tyler built the Prototype and 3D Printing Division at his previous company, and couldn’t wait any longer to start his own business. PRG was born in February 2006 when the first Material Research project was sold. PRG has grown exponentially over the past 9 years, and in June 2012 the company expanded to a new 12,000 square foot facility in the Pittsburg, KS Industrial Park to expand the vast product development services that PRG offers today.
