Celebrating our 30th anniversary feels more significant than our 25th. Yes, making it 3 decades instead of 2 and a half is an achievement! However, the last five years have been hard. At times it equated to the feeling of climbing a mountain or swimming across an ocean.
It’s a well-known fact that most small businesses fail.
More than 20% of small businesses in the U.S. end up failing within a year. After five years, around 50% fail, and after 10 years, only 30% are still running. Once you pass the 15-year mark in business you still only have a 25% chance of surviving.
99.9% of all businesses in the US qualify as small businesses, collectively employing 47.3 of the nation’s private workforce.
Compared to January of 2020 34% of America’s small businesses are still closed due to COVID-19.
That makes surviving over the last 5 years even more meaningful. As we celebrate our 30th anniversary and look back, I know we didn’t just survive, we thrived. We’re better than ever! Our company has condensed into a tight-knit, experienced, knowledgeable, and talented team. We have the best of the best working for us, and they’re ready to go to work for you. From your first contact with the office staff to your visit with our estimators, and finally installation with our glaziers, AS&G cares about giving you the service you deserve.
In closing, we would like to say the most important thing. THANK YOU! Thank you, to all our AS&G customers. We could not have made it without you and your loyalty. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you for many years to come.
