“The result that we’re most proud of is an incredible 83% increase in the fabrication side of our business, which was previously around only half of what we offered in the market. The dollar value of that improvement is around a $1.8 million increase in a year, which was absolutely huge for us. I could attribute the bulk of that increase to the work we did with Vative.”
Gerald Edmonds, General Manager, Central Steel Build
