Our Business Model
Our business model is very simple; maintain and attract service focused employees and offer quality products. Quality employees, managed properly, will enable the business to offer excellent service and support to its customers. Concrete forming and shoring is a relationship driven industry that develops through trust by providing products in a timely and efficient manner.
The Concrete Forming and Shoring market is a smaller segment of the overall construction market. Most large structures in the Southeastern United States are built out of concrete requiring molds or forms to give the structure the designed shape. In order for construction companies to be efficient and cost effective, companies are moving to manufactured systems to help reduce labor cost and crane time so the projects can be finished in more quickly.
As competition increases, more and more contractors will be forced to use forming and shoring systems. SOCON has the expertise along with the proper products to capture a major share of this market.
