Southfield Packaging, a Stamford, Connecticut-based provider of contract packaging, warehousing and fulfilment solutions, is bullish about business in 2015. The company’s owner cites advancement in technology that has allowed him better insight into his business as a major factor.
“This past year was exciting for our business and we’re ready for even bigger things in 2015,” said Mark Melfi, who is the president of Southfield Packaging. “Part of the reason we’re optimistic is that, thanks to technology, we now have better visibility across our business. Now we don’t have to hope that our business is entering the year in good shape, we know it is.”
At Exact, we talk to small businesses every day, and we know that thanks to better technology, our local manufacturers – and the wholesalers who sell what they make – are equipped with the right insights to make them more competitive than ever before. This is great news for both our local and national economies and a strong sign that we may be moving into a period of extended long-term growth.
In fact, the majority of the small manufacturers and wholesalers we spoke with say they’re optimistic that business will continue trending upward in the New Year and anticipate more growth in 2015 than in 2014. All of the small businesses we spoke with said that acquiring new customers and leveraging affordable yet powerful technology would be the drivers of this growth.
