What's Great About My Mentor?
Working with SCORE Mentor Bart Jacobs, Paul and Leonard saw that they could implement new ideas to improve efficiency, enhance sales and reduce overhead. The realities of doing business demanded a new approach to marketing, inventory and many other areas of the business. With their vision for Precision Transmission, the brothers earned their mother’s confidence to open the business at the family’s location.
Precision Transmission now employs six people and has seen increasing sales and profitability. They estimate business has grown 80 to 100 percent since the ‘90s. Though business is booming, the brothers always find time for SCORE. The two keep meeting with mentors each month since opening their business. Though Bart acts as their primary mentor, he occasionally calls in other mentors as the business' needs change from human resources issues to cash management to financing.
