hey Concretista,

I like your work, looks really cool.
I am a newbie to this and am a bit in awe at the finish quality i see on this site. I just scored my first job, a little freaked but here we go.
i live a couple hundred miles south but i can get up to Puerto Rico on Liat airlines pretty easily, would it be possible to come check out your workshop sometime soon?
anyway, great work.

Hey thanks for the compliment. Well as far as my business goes I will have to be honest I am in a bit of a transition stage. At this time I only have myself , another fabricator,and someone who helps with most of the paperwork side of things. I never had more than me and two other employees unless they where temps on a larger project mainly for installs and things. I used to put out a pretty high volume of work in the Phoenix area with only two other fabricators. Granted I worked my ass off allot of times but also brought in Big$$$$. I had a kitchen display at IKEA in PHx for awhile and multiple other showrooms in town. You know what I found with this whole economy and my need for feeding my creative mind is that bigger is surely not better. Keeping your business small and managable is the key. Concentrate on bringing in very expensive custom jobs and build a good reputation then your business will surely be easier to manage and you will be pleased with the work that is put out. High volume leads to problems and to much overhead and a business with lots of liability and as you know concrete has allot of draw backs as a material used in kitchens. I just downsized my shop from 10,000 sqr ft too 3,500 sqr. ft and am saving myself about 5,000 a month in rent and trust me that adds up fast. I have more time now to concentrate on individual jobs and thats key. Find yourself a good fabricator and you can accoplish plenty of volume and keep things in control. I hope that helped.
