WEEKLY EDITION February 21, 2018 The Hand that Feeds Us By PSAI Executive Director Karleen Kos, as published in the February edition of PRO Magazine Say what you will about winter, it has its bright spots. Outdoor activities that don't involve sweating for one. An excuse to buy chocolate and roses for another. But I think the best part of winter is the opportunity to attend the tradeshows supporting our industry. They provide a great chance to reconnect with the many suppliers who make our work possible, to learn from them, and to thank them for all they do. Have you given much thought to what we owe the suppliers to portable sanitation companies? Apart from the free pens, note pads, stuffed animals, hand s anitizer, candy, adult beverages, and can koozies to put them in, have you pondered the important role suppliers play in moving companies like yours along the road to success? • Suppliers provide the means to carry out our work. Have you ever known of an operating company that also built its own units, trucks, trailers, and pumps while developing its own software, mixing its own deodorizer, financing all of its own purchases, and insuring itself against losses? Every operator stands on the shoulders of a d ozen or more suppliers. Portable sanitation services would not exist without them. • Suppliers protect us from our miscalculations and see us through our growth. Whether it's a matter of misjudging how long that truck would last, or seizing a lucrative new o pportunity because your rep manages to get you a hundred units by Tuesday, it's the industry suppliers that come through in a pinch and save the day.
