A few weeks ago, Town Planner Tom Kravitz and I were fortunate to be asked to host a small business visit for Governor Raimondo. We arranged opportunity for the Governor to meet with the leadership and personnel of both KB Surfaces and National Marker Corporation (NMC) in their respective facilities on Providence Pike in our industrial park. What we saw were energized business leaders who are growing businesses through continuing investment in new people, new machinery and most of all new ideas on how to bring quality products to customers quickly and cost effectively. At KB Surfaces, we saw how their team of people, with some high tech mechanical equipment, can create stone counters and fine cabinetry for a single building nearby or dozens of Starbuck locations all over the world. They can also create custom closet shelving for one home or a thousand with the same careful craftsmanship.
Over at National Marker, we met people who design their own machines to continuously improve each product and their ability to produce just a few signs for a local use, or hundreds of thousands of signs for use anywhere in the world all in a matter of hours. At NMC, we also saw how they were using their extensive creative talents to make new highly customized facing systems for movable office partitions and even custom marketing material for placement on floors and walls. The creative talent in each business that we witnessed with Governor Raimondo was awesome.
Most impressive of all was the pride that we saw in the ability of good people to create products that exceed customer expectations. When there is need for cabinetry and surfaces to improve a home or business, contact Tracey Beck at The Beck Companies. When signs or graphics of almost any kind are needed, talk with Michael Black at National Marker Corporation. We are proud to have both companies as part of our community and hope others near and far can connect with them for new business opportunity.
We are very interested in getting to know all of the Town's businesses and their needs. Please contact the Planner at extension 312 or Administrator at 303 if you would like to set up a site visit. We are here to support and to help grow every North Smithfield business.
