Independent and small businesses offer personalized service in a friendly atmosphere. Locally owned businesses have the opportunity to develop long-standing relationships with their clients, and to adapt the services they offer according to the changing needs of their customer base. This customer-oriented focus coupled with quality workmanship and firsthand experience in the field is a win-win situation for customers who are looking for a company that offers tailor-made service.
When an entrepreneur undertakes to start a new business from the ground up, he or she makes a significant personal commitment. The time and labor required can be daunting, but also serves as evidence of the passion the individual has for the business. Oftentimes, these individuals bring with them a wealth of experience, knowledge, and insight that is readily accessible to the customers they serve. Large publicly-traded corporations operate in a way that is, necessarily, but unfortunately, far less connected to the consumer.
As an independent business, Landmark Elevator, Inc. has the ability to meet our customer’s needs.
As a local, independent company, Landmark Elevator has the freedom to carry a diverse product line, and to specialize in the products that are best able to meet the needs of our customers. Large national elevator companies quite often have construction and service departments which are meant primarily to bolster their manufacturing division. As such, they can only sell the products that they make. What’s more, many of their products are intentionally designed to be difficult for other companies to service. At Landmark Elevator, we are proud to work with a variety of suppliers to bring our customers the best non-proprietary equipment on the market. We are confident that the service we provide and customer satisfaction will be the factors that grow our business.
Small businesses are the largest employer group in the United States. These small, hardworking companies are the heartbeat of the local economy, and an important factor in the overall national economy. When citizens support local business, they are directly impacting the community in which they themselves live. Studies have reported that independent companies often recirculate a large portion of their revenue within the local community. This has a two-fold benefit in that it not only energizes the economy, but helps to keep costs lower allowing the small business to operate more efficiently than their corporate competitors. These savings are frequently passed on directly to the consumer.
William Block, Sr. and William Block, Jr. founded Landmark Elevator, Inc. in 2001 with the desire to provide quality workmanship, personal service, and superior products to better meet the vertical transportation needs of the quad-state area. After fifteen years in business, we at Landmark are proud of the dedicated team we have assembled. We enjoy a productive and ongoing relationship with our many customers.
