After a productive year in 2015, Sandlapper Controls kicked off 2016 running fast! Having obtained wholesaler contracts with Siemens and KMC Controls, we were exploring ecommerce platforms and developing our website, www.sandlappercontrols.com, for internet part sales. Our eBay store was thriving. We had over 400 used and obsolete parts listed in our eBay store. Things were growing at great pace.
In January 2016, Sandlapper Controls, Inc. created a contracting division. This division expanded the companies capabilities providing installation services for building control components and systems. These services include both electronic and pneumatic controls along with computer network wiring and cabling. The Sandlapper staff increased from 2 employees to 28 overnight!
By April, Sandlapper Controls had signed wholesaler agreements with several other manufacturers including Johnson Controls, Veris Industries, ACI, Schneider Electric, and Belimo. Our product catalog jumped from 10,000 products to over 80,000 parts. Our contracting division was working hard and developing great relationships with new customers in the commercial and government sectors.
Incredibly, Sandlapper Controls was able to increase revenues in 2016 by 5900%! We thank our customers for an amazing year. We can’t wait to see what developments 2017 will bring our way!
