Adapting to the Market POST COVID from a Dealers Perspective
The past 2 years was a trying period for everyone. We experienced triple digit price increases, extended product lead times and continual supply chain issues, not to mention the severe labor situation. Despite this, we found ways to overcome the past challenges and in doing so, have been able to grow substantially not only in revenue, but have increased our EBITDA to a respectable level that competes with other service industries. Our employees are some of the highest paid in the Industry, we have developed creative cost effective ways to go to market, and my goal is to share our experience as a Dealer with the hope that together, we become better than we were, and be recognized as “Professionals” which we truly are.
