W EEKLY EDITION JUNE 19, 201 9 Member Spotligh t - Nature's Way Portable Units By Todd Ginter , PSAI Marketing Manager This new business would land Tim and Ami directly into the Portable Sanitation i ndustry, renting and servicing portable units. After acquiring the necessary license to run the business, Tim and Ami headed to the WWETT show that, at that time, was being held in Nashville, Tennessee. Attending the show was their way to figure out exact ly what the world of portable sanitation was all about and what they would be getting themselves into. Ami described the purpose of the trip to WWETT as, "Tim trying to find out why we should go into this type of business and for me it was finding out why we shouldn't!" If they were ready or not, on the morning of April 1, 1994 they opened for business. On that first day, they had 53 fiberglass units, four sinks that they didn't know how to use, and one single - axle truck. They had been tossing around busi ness names for a while until they decided on Nature's Way. That moniker was the choice because they wanted to run the business as environmentally conscious as they could. Within a day of being in business, an order came in for 40 portable units. Immediate ly Ami thought it was someone playing a joke on them; it was just such an interesting coincidence. However, the order was real and Ami decided right then she needed to learn how to be an expert at keeping track of inventory. A skill and knowledge set she s till finds useful to this day. As spring turned into summer, the business grew and the calls kept coming in. At one point, Ami was renting more units than they had on hand. It seemed inevitable that the business was going to continue to grow and this busi ness venture would be more than just a weekend job. "It has been a crazy life to say the least," Ami now says looking back over 25 years, "But we love the industry and it has been a great way to make a living."
