Recently, the Bay Area Chamber Manufacturers council met at York for a discussion on new business development. The Council, which champions area businesses and brings them together to talk about best practices, helps others’ to shorten the learning curve in business.
Jeff York, who is the sitting Council chair for 2013, took the group through a discussion of new business development of our on-line store, Repair Zone.com. Repair Zone sells surplus and remanufactured automation equipment, such as servo motors and drives, and functions as the nationwide repair reach for the company.
Jeff discussed how the initial idea came about during the economic downturn coupled with a desire to branch-out into other industries. Of writing a business plan, executing the set-up, and how it led to extraordinary growth the first couple of years in, and quickly becoming a full independent division of York Repair.
