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.”
