WHo We Are

We are just a couple of creative-minded Michiganders that love to see other businesses grow. Our backgrounds are in engineering, sales, business development, public speaking, graphic design, videography, social media management, networking, production lighting, website building, and eating really good food. We love working with our hands yet also like making sure the numbers add up properly on really large spreadsheets. We operate like your business is our business, because well... your business is our business. On a serious note though, we really do like to eat really good food.

Why Ardenci?

Ardenci Stressed syllables.jpg

The word Ardenci comes from the word Ardent (ar·dent | \ˈär-dᵊnt) which means both enthusiastic/passionate and burning/glowing. Combine the two meanings together and you get a “burning passion“ that we apply to everything we do.
