We want to be the Google of small manufacturing.
Peekskill, NY (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
In this day and age, when you hear of a recent college graduate embarking on a business startup, you probably assume it's something web-related. But some young entrepreneurs, like Sam Saxton, the President of Mylen and Salter Spiral Stair, believe technology can be partially responsible for the renaissance of the American manufacturing industry. His companies focus on the design and fabrication of staircases in America – an initiative that is unique and progressive in today's corporate climate.
That doesn't mean that Saxton doesn't believe in seizing the opportunities of the internet to further his business, though; it's actually quite the opposite. "We want to be the Google of small manufacturing," he says. "Even though we build our products with steel and aluminum instead of typing code, we still think we can revolutionize our industry the same way other companies do."
Technology doesn't necessarily need to epitomize a new business, despite what other businessmen in Saxton's age demographic may think. Instead, it can be used to enhance a traditional industry. Rather than running a technology startup, he's bringing new technology to a classic trade by using 3D CADs, web marketing, glance software, cloud-based accounting software, custom ordering platforms, and more. It's no app development or online gaming business, but it's certainly not what a spiral stair manufacturer would have been twenty years ago.
Mylen and Salter Spiral specialize in manufacturing elegant yet space-saving and high-quality spiral staircases for homes and businesses. The companies supply both stock stair kits and custom-made models designed to fit the customer's order. Based out of Collegeville, PA and Peekskill, NY, the companies proudly serve all of North America, including some islands, and even occasionally engage in international transactions.
