As a previous owner of a supply and installation company I witness the growing pains first hand. How do we get more exposure to new customers? How could we open closed doors and get invites to bid on upcoming projects.
I don't need to tell you how frustrating it was to fight and fight to grow and finally open a door with a new customer only to hear them say “ man , where were you two years ago?” or last month or oh you just mist the closing date.
Also we struggled with the costs of Bidding and Bidding hopping to get a job. Sometime we would be quoting to 3 or 4 contractors on the same job only to have it awarded to a GC that wasn't receiving our bid.
Mix that with growing and landing larger contracts. We needed to get better availability of product and better pricing so we could compete against the big boys and the old school handshake deals.
