With Father’s Day just having passed, you likely took time to reflect on how your dad impacted your life, and gave them thanks for such impartations.
Historically, a dad would pass down his trade to his son and they would carry on the family business generation after generation. Nowadays that’s not so much the case, as options are fairly limitless and opportunities are as well. But pre-modern era, you knew who to hire for any given trade based on a long lineage of experience.
However, word-of-mouth is still a popular choice when it comes to the credibility of a company, and inquiring with friends and family about the services of a business can help with your buying and hiring decisions.
That being said, as a more niche business, steel fabrication does not always lend itself to your neighbour knowing whether or not one given fabrication company exceeds another, but there are other ways you can verify such services apart from this.
Social Media Standing
You will be hard-pressed to find a company that does not employ a social media site (or multiple sites) in today’s online marketplace. This is a forum that is open to the public, offering reviews and insights that were not available in the pre-Internet era. It’s a good go-to source, and even if nothing has been said on their behalf – no news can also mean good news, as there is no negative feedback.
Personality Via Website Content
A companies website will also offer an “About” as well as often a blog, both of which should deliver the personality of the company, the reason why they do what they do, and a read-ready relationship building tool that can give you better insight into who they are without having to make a personal stop at each location.
At Absolute Fabrication we believe in an open-door policy – not only with our staff, but with our customers as well. We feel that by being transparent, it offers the same benefits that small family run businesses once had – relateability and quality relationships. We aim to maintain a high morale within our shop culture, and instill in our employees the value of having a hand in the finished result.
Our attention is places on the craftsmanship of the end product, and our staff members take a keen interest in their projects and the workmanship they are providing, as we operate very much like a family unit.
So simply put – when looking to hire a steel fabrication company, find one that is proud of their company, where an upstanding culture is evident, and the service speaks for itself.
Absolute Fabrication is always excited to see our projects come to life from concept to completion, and help your vision become a reality. Let us know how we can do so!
