As the 2015/16 snowmobile season comes to an end you might wonder what happens in the B&M Shop.
In the beginning years... not a whole lot. We would usually finish up the last few orders of the season as they trickle in and put the shop on stand by until its time to get ready for Hay Days. Working normal day jobs etc and coming in at night if an order or two roll in. In the most recent past seasons we have started earlier due to high early season demand. Working hard a few months early allowed us to build inventory and get a head start on the year.
2015 was a big year for us as a company. We quit our day jobs and went full time.
A lot of people know we are a small company. A lot of people don't know that we are a three man operation. With growing daily orders and higher demand we were working later and later at night to keep up. Some days only getting an hour or so of sleep before we went to our regular jobs. It only made sense to quit our jobs to allow us to be in the shop full time. So we did it.
The 15/16 season was great. We worked extremely hard to refine our processes, upgrade equipment, add new vendor events, and start advertising on websites and forums. We focused on staying in touch with our customers and making sure we took care of them. We have built a large following on social media. This allows us to interact with our customers directly as well as show off what we have cooking in the shop.
We are looking forward to the 16/17 Snow Season and plan to double up and then some on inventory to keep our lead times low.
So with that said, summer is coming. What does a snowmobile company do in the summer? We are headed into the UTV Market!
