Where many other firms may have large teams of lower-wage employees, this company deploys a very agile and highly skilled team. As they have grown, they have increased their capacity to take on much larger jobs with less competition. Today, they can deliver individual jobs that are larger than their annual revenues of just a few years ago. Their reputation is stellar with their highly recurring clientele.
