Thank you to all of our customers for an amazing 2014. Because of you, we were able to grow our company in so many ways. We are truly humbled to have such a great customer base that supports us and continues to give us the opportunity to serve as a trusted hand dryer, restroom accessory, drinking fountain, plumbing supply and floor cleaning equipment supplier (to name a few). Here’s a quick summary of some of the major accomplishments we were able to make in 2014:
We were able to expand ProDryers by partnering with new trusted manufacturers such as Zurn, Buckeye, Betco, CARR, Elkay and more. We listen to our customers. Products that did not carry a high satisfactory rate were dropped.
We were able to expand ProDrinkingFountains with hundreds of Elkay products allowing us to better serve our customers with a full offering of Elkay’s wide range of products from drinking fountains to commercial sinks and other plumbing supplies. Our Elkay sales have been through the roof in growth and we thank our customers so much for the opportunity.
We built ProFloorMachines and partnered with top companies like Clarke, Mercury, Sandia, Betco and more in order to provide a full range of floor machines and floor cleaning equipment.
MRDIndustrial was designed and deployed which now offers a full industrial shopping experience and continues to grow fast with new industrial supplies.
And our proudest accomplishment was the rebirth of ProDryers. We completely redesigned our entire store front and moved our platform to a new e-commerce provider. It’s a move we should have made a long time ago as our store and shopping experience for hand dryers and restroom products quickly surpassed the capabilities of our original e-commerce solution. Our navigation menu was completely redesigned to offer our shoppers a quicker and easier method of pinpointing exactly what they need out of our thousands of products. The new and improved ProDryers has been well received by our customer base with a last quarter lift in overall sales. The feedback has been very positive and our new design has resulted in happy shoppers, which is our Goal.
Lastly, we have expanded our warehouse space and customer service team. We are staffed to offer top tier customer care and our team is made up of passionate individuals that will go the extra mile to satisfy our customers.
We wish all of our customers (and future customers) the very best in 2015. We have so much more planned. In fact, we have already partnered with another major manufacturer and will be moving forward as a stocking distributor right out of the gate. Look for some huge announcements early 2015 as we get the ball rolling! We are extremely excited to partner with this manufacturer and we expect very fast growth. Thank you for allowing us to live out our dream as one of the top commercial and industrial suppliers of hand dryers, restroom accessories, drinking fountains, commercial plumbing supplies, commercial floor cleaning equipment and more. The Category Five Technologies family is here to stay and our ambitions will continue to drive our company forward with the help of our customers. Happy New Year!
