Company History


After retiring from the US Navy as a Supply Corps CW04, Dick Clarke took his broad knowledge and entrepreneurial drive into the contracting sector.  He founded Mancon in 1983, quickly expanding from building sophisticated shipping crates to providing an ever-increasing amount of products for the fleet.  Mancon became a preferred vendor to manage inventories and warehouses.

Soon Mancon was expanding its services to its public sector clients by offering personnel placement for critical military contracts, as well as business and industrial products to customers in the federal government and private industry.  Mancon used its broad knowledge of systems to establish a strong niche in supply chain management.  In 2008, it acquired Empire Machinery in Norfolk, a highly regarded industrial supplies firm with decades of service to local shipyards and other manufacturing and repair facilities.

Today Mancon’s name is synonymous with quality and integrity, service and dedication. Those are the lessons Dick Clarke learned in service to his country and passed on to a second generation of dedicated professionals, schooled in logistics and commited to customer satisfaction.
