First B2B Deal

February 27, 2018


Ok so on my journey here along my road I'm calling starting a business I have had to make a couple sacrifices. However I have been able to keep some of the creature comforts most people enjoy. One of those is vacation. I was lucky enough to attend the 2018 World of Concrete convention with my parents in Las Vegas. While in Vegas I received a facebook message from a local import tuning shop called "Strictly Performance." They do a lot of high end GTR and Evo builds as well as a lot of tuning with their in house dyno. When I got the message they were looking for a new powder coater I was thrilled to get the opportunity. 


One unique thing about the shop is they not only do a lot of builds but they also have a small line of production performance parts. This is great for me because it will provide a steady ish income for the shop and still allow us to do all of our normal custom work. When I got back from my Vegas trip i immediately went to the shop the following day to meet with them and go over some colors and pricing. Thinking I was going to get only a couple pieces to test shoot for them I was more then surprised when I left with over 35 parts to coat. Needless to say they were thrilled with the results and the turn around time I provided. 


We have now been working together for several weeks and our relationship is going strong. They like that i will do pick ups and drop offs at the shop and I enjoy a steady stream of income. Plus the biggest bonus we still get to do tons of awesome custom jobs in between the small batches of their production parts.
