Last year, my daughters asked for duct tape for Christmas. This was a highly unusual request, as all I knew about duct tape was that it was silver, and it held pretty much everything together. Besides that, I had never considered it to be a useful toy, or something that an 8-year-old, or 10-year-old girl […]

The Thermal Way

March 19, 2012

Many of our customers ask us a variation of the same question, or offer a similar statement: “Why do you cost more than your competitor?” or “I got a cheaper quote from another guy.” Our response is to do one of two things: 1) We can discount more, and give stuff away to “buy” the […]

“Great” or not?

March 13, 2012

I recently read an article by Greg Benua in IE3 Magazine (March, 2012), entitled What Does “Great” Look Like in Your Company?  ( This caused me to take a step back and think about this question.
