As an entrepreneur, Todd Peters knows that sometimes a simple formula is the best formula.
When he set out to launch his own business, he said, "I wasn't finding what I thought was going to be out there, but I overcame it by finding something else."
That something else evolved into Kitting and Assembly Solutions, which is based in a warehouse near Denver and provides a range of services, including Amazon FBA Prep; and kitting, labeling, assembly, custom packaging, shipping, receiving, storage and quality control.
Kitting and Assembly Solutions:
Receives, packs and ships your Amazon products as individual units, with the ability to customize boxes and labels for shipment to Amazon.
Assembles a multitude of products and provides shipping wherever needed, or stores your inventory on-site for future use.
Can receive inventory and store products until they are ready to be kitted and shipped; then arrange for cost-effective shipping. We provide guidance on all shipping options, including UPS, FedEx, freight and air.
Kitting and Assembly Solutions serves customers across the U.S. and around the world who more often than not are faced with these questions. Lucky for them, Todd and his team have answers for them.
Do you need additional storage space?
Does your business need to reduce staff and overhead?
Do you need additional capacity?
Do you need to fulfill last minute orders?
Could you use discounts on shipping that will help reduce your overhead?
Kitting and Assembly Solutions also argues that outsourcing is a smart move because it sets the stage for:
Lower operational and labor costs.
Flexibility to focus on your core business.
The tapping into and leveraging of a global customer base and information network.
The freeing up of internal resources.
Accessing new markets.
Todd's been working in warehouses for 30 years, since he was age 16. He started out running small operations, but worked his way up to managing two 150,000-square-foot warehouses, with 50 employees each.
Eight years ago, he started his own warehouse business in his garage. Now, that enterprise occupies a 10,000-square-foot warehouse and is staffed by 12 employees.
"That's my story," he said. "My background is in this business. I started my business because that's what I know."
"I like trucks coming in, boxes moving-it means we're working," he said. "I just like making customers happy."
When Todd started his business, he was looking to establish a foothold in kitting, a shipping process that bundles similar products together. But he wasn't finding much work in that area. And that's when his simple business philosophy emerged: he didn't find what he expected, so he found something else-Amazon FBA.
"And now I'm coming back full circle," he said. "I'm starting to get a lot of jobs with what I originally started the business for."
So what type of advice does this successful entrepreneur have for other aspiring business owners?
"If you're starting a business, you have to be dedicated," Todd said. "You have to be willing to put the time in."
