Suffield Startup Launches Online Marketplace For Landscaping Supplies

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

Suffield startup SHARKMARX recently launched a new procurement engine that provides landscape professionals the ability to buy and sell landscape products over the Internet.

Buyers can post their needs on the site and the engine will automatically provide authorized sellers of the product.  Sellers can each submit their own bids.

“As a startup, we’ve had to be nimble and use dozens of sub-contractors to get the business operational,” George Beiter, co-founder and Suffield resident, said in a press release.  “As we hit some of our growth targets, though, we’ll need to add several-fulltime employees here in Connecticut and possibly add a data center as we look to expand into other vertical markets.”

    I think that it is wonderful that companies such as this are making the move to the internet! I hope that landscape supply minneapolis will soon follow suit. It is a great convenience for the customer and greatly increases the customer base for the business.

    As with every other industry, it was only a matter of time before landscapers went digital. Personally, I think it’s great. Getting quality landscaping supplies at competitive pricing is what we all want, and if this new “app” levels the playing field, then we’ll all benefit!
