Product Comparison #12 By Sean Hubbard

Believe it or not, we have reached the end of our 12-part series of product comparisons! As I reflect on the past twelve months, I realize how engrossed in our own product offering I was and how unfamiliar I was with our competition. As challenging and time consuming as this project has been, it was a great exercise for me. Growing up in Klaisler Mfg. Corp, I had a good handle on the roof truss equipment, however I would often classify myself as a novice in wall panel manufacturing. I no longer feel this way! This exercise taught me, the wall panel equipment we manufacture and represent with Spida Machinery firmly establishes that Square 1 Design is at the forefront of technology and innovation for wall panels.

I understand the industry is small and innovation is expensive, but the shear lack of competition in the industry does not offer a great deal of variety to the consumer. I was often disappointed in the variety available. I have met with our staff and, as a supplier, innovator, and leader in the market, I believe it is imperative we continue to offer options and solutions to the industry that are not “out of box” rather a custom design that meets the needs of each component manufacturer. 

I truly hope you have found the product comparisons valuable and hope you have enjoyed the series, it has been a valuable experience for me.
