- I would like to shift from strictly “made to order” to having gear ready made, eliminating the need for lead time which is one of my biggest hurdles. This requires more materials in stock than I currently keep. Custom orders would benefit from this as well. Production times would decrease if I had the materials on hand to cover most custom work. I’ve already set up several manufacturer direct accounts eliminating the middle man for some of these materials. A bigger space would be great, but I can still do this in my current place. It's just going to be cramped... more cramped.
- Having the materials on hand would also allow me to offer some of those materials to DIYers/makers looking for another option in the fairly slim outdoors DIY materials market.
- I am also working on securing access to locally based manufacturing which would be fantastic and would A) Help keep jobs locally. B) Decrease the amount of materials I would need to keep here. C) Decrease the time I would spend making gear, aside from custom orders, allowing me to spend more time promoting Hemlock Mountain Outdoors presence - further growing the brand and supporting point A.
