Can you tell us why you decided to start your own company?

Matt Leach: There was a demand for better priced truck tarp application items. Looked overseas for material to accommodate the OEM market who manufactures these truck tarp items.

Let’s talk about your company. What kind of services do you provide?

How has technology and the internet impacted how you conduct your business?

Matt Leach: The Internet has transformed the way we communicate with our customers and business partners in a positive way. It allows for expedient communication resulting in faster deliveries and happy customers. Additionally, the internet allows us to provide an informative website that lists describes all of our products at a fraction of the cost of printing, with no waste.

Lastly, when it comes to marketing a company like Vinyl Values, how do you reach the customers and businesses that need your products?

Other means of marketing is through the internet with our web site as well as advertising in digital publications and E-Blasts through Constant Contact. In addition, some advertising is done in hard copy publications as well as press releases. We also display at several trade shows throughout the year.
