Customers find us by our website, TV Commercials and several forms of advertising we invest in each day, along from word-of-mouth from neighbors. You will work with our 2-3 person sales team fielding calls and directing some calls to outside salespeople who will visit the customer to give them a Firm Quote in writing for a generator system to suit their needs.
