In 1974, Richard Gadomski bid for and was awarded his first contract-a $50 million corn processing plant for Cargill before his company was even founded. After successfully building his company around that first job he proceeded to buy out his original backers so that he could continue to build the company as he saw fit. PSI, an engineering and construction contracting firm, built international recognition in processing food, chemicals and package handling. In 1998, Gadomski sold PSI to the German corporation Lurgi and retired from the merged companies in 2001. Richard’s vision for PSI, from inception, was to build an industry-leading company that spearheaded innovation in the food processing industry. PSI became that industry leader, engineering and constructing projects for Cargill, FedEx, and all the major processors of corn, soybeans, sugars, vegetable oils, and ethanol. These projects were built in 35 states, Canada, France, Japan, Philippines, Thailand, Netherlands, China, Mexico, and other foreign locations.
Active in the Memphis community, Gadomski has been involved with Christian Brothers University, Catholic Diocese of Memphis, United Way, Church of the Holy Spirit, March of Dimes, Memphis Regional Chamber, Renewable Fuels Association, Memphis Bioworks Foundation and a variety of youth sports programs. He has served three different terms on the CBU Board of Trustees.
