    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    If i had more time to dedicate i would add space for inventory and packing. This is a great business but I dont have the time to keep up with the volume of orders and admin

    Skills to have

    If you have access to a Mitre saw to do some minor and ocassional cutting of aluminum extrusion, its a great service we currently offer to customers.
