We want to welcome our recently enrolled member, Fire Protection USA, to SACC San Diego! We met up with founder Vincent Jimenez to learn more about his company and new membership.
The reason why Vincent chose to become a member of SACC San Diego was that he found our services – not least the consulting services of our Management Associates – to be very useful for his business. Additionally, he was interested in our continually growing network of entrepreneurs and professionals from all over the world, which allows him to meet people that can complement and enhance his individual skills.
Hearing Vincent talk about his company makes it apparent that he is very passionate about the business. The reason why Fire Protection USA came to be was that Vincent felt a need for a more easy and efficient way to purchase fire protection products.
“The idea came to my mind when people had to use three or four vendors just to buy a product, ship it, import it, pay taxes, duties and logistics of getting the product at the doorstep”.
People were looking for a single entrepreneur that could provide a single solution to them buying US products. It simply took too many phone calls, too many people and too much effort for customers to place an order of fire protection products. Vincent decided to start a company that would later on add to an additional branch of products.
The creation of Fire Protection USA was the solution to a lot of people’s problems. The amount of steps for buying a product was greatly reduced and much money was saved in the process. Customers did no longer have to pay high mark-ups, which brought the prices down by 15 % alone.
Vincent describes Fire Protection USA as a reliable, dependable and courteous company offering everything you may need when it comes to fire protection. Products ranges from hose racks, cabinets, Siamese valves, fire hydrants and accessories for product installation. Most importantly, the company is in contact with everyone involved, from end users to petrochemical companies and construction companies.
The target customers of Fire Protection USA are mostly companies based out of Mexico, Cuba, Chile, Venezuela and Colombia.
“I tend to mostly target companies that have branches throughout their countries or cities, which helps me having higher revolving customers, and allows me to have a better service through offering my products to them”.
The future of Fire Protection USA looks very promising and the business is growing every day.
“I will eventually be where I need to be by not giving up, and by always staying resourceful and perseverant. I may have some trips and falls along the way but ultimately it’s endurance and vision that keeps me going.”
Through Vincent’s use of our consulting services we have recently redesigned the website for Fire Protection USA. Furthermore, we have helped design new business cards and product catalogues. Check it out and read more about Fire Protection USA at http://www.fireprotectionusa.com.
