Colorado Business Hires Despite a Still Uncertain Economy

(Vocus/PRWEB) December 14, 2010

Brighton, CO (Vocus) December 14, 2010 — Sashco Sealants, a Colorado based manufacturer of caulks and sealants, recently hired three new positions. In both an economy, and an industry where many businesses continue to face arduous times and layoffs, Sashco is employing new talent and expanding office space to accommodate future hires.

Sashco Sealants is recognized in the industry for unique product branding, packaging, and advertising. So, it stands to reason that the company would continue to invest in strong marketing talent. Sashco recently expanded their marketing team with the addition of Monica Catalani, Brand Manager, Dale Monahan, Senior Graphics Designer, and Brian Lawson, Network/Systems Administrator.

While countless other businesses in the home improvement and construction industry have closed their doors or downsized, Sashco continues to expand. When asked why Sashco has been able to buck the trend that has taken such a toll on many of their competitors, Marketing Manager, Debbie Bassett commented that, “Sashco has been in business for more than 70 years. We’ve learned from experience that whether you’re working though a thriving or unstable economy, one thing remains true; investing in good people will never fail you. Our history proves that pursuing after and hiring excellent people with character, integrity and talent will always cause us to stand apart in product excellence – excellent people contribute to making excellent products.”

As Sashco looks ahead into 2011 with plans to create more new positions and fill existing openings, an expansion project has begun on office headquarters in Brighton, Colorado to create more space. Bassett explained that, “We are excited about what the future holds for Sashco. We are thrilled and humbled to be in a position to be able to continue recruiting employees to Sashco of Monica, Dale and Brian’s caliber. Their collective experience and knowledge will be of great value to our customers as they represent Sashco.”

Moss Provides a Sense of Peace and Tranquility Even During These Uncertain and Stressful Times, And One Company Is Filling This Niche by Providing Five Varieties

Honesdale, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) September 30, 2011

According to the folks at Moss Acres, moss has been around for 350 million years – it is believed to have “crept” out of the oceans and slowly evolved traits that adapted it for life on land. But moss had no lofty ambitions, it has changed little over time, and remains one of the simplest of plants. Moss plants have no true roots and simply absorb all the moisture and nutrients they require directly from the air and rain. This is why moss thrives in damp environments – it can only photosynthesize and spread when it is hydrated. As soon as moss dries out it goes dormant, awaiting the next rain. This is how Moss Acres is able to store moss – dry, so it won’t mold and it also has an unlimited shelf life.

Moss Acres was started on a whim twelve years ago by Al Benner, whose father Dave has been nurturing moss gardens for close to fifty years in Bucks County, PA. As an avid outdoorsman, Al decided he wanted a way to spend more time in the mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania. He also figured since nobody was offering moss for landscaping in large quantities he could fill that niche, so he decided to purchase an old house with acreage in Wayne county. One of the greatest features of the property are the nearby falls. A short walk into the woods, one finds themself staring at an enchanting series of cascading waterfalls bordered by rocky outcroppings covered in moss, ferns and wildflowers. The soothing feeling here reminds us all of how it is often the simplest things that give us the most pleasure.

The house has since been restored and Moss Acres has expanded to the point where it is now located at a separate location down the road. Al is now also turning his attention to creating an organic farm for his twin five year old boys on the property. Business and lifestyle have a pattern of co-mingling for this entrepreneur.

Moss Acres had very humble beginnings, and by most any business standards would still be considered a small company. But even in the recent economic downturn, the company continues to show respectable annual sales growth and has even recently launched two new moss products for retail garden centers, gift shops and online gift merchants. The “Moss Milkshake” and the “Live Moss Garden Pack” are selling very well nationwide for many retailers and are also helping to create more public awareness regarding all the environmental benefits of moss. These include: no mowing, no fertilizing or chemicals, and no watering once established.

Many new products and applications are in development at Moss Acres, including a moss mat system that can be attached to walls, ground moss fragments for shady area green roofs (a handful of these have been successfully installed), and topiary systems for creating unique and artistic shapes covered in moss. Moss for terrariums is also a big seller. Moss Acres currently offers five varieties of shade-loving mosses in large quantities, and is also experimenting with sun-loving mosses for clients with sunnier conditions.

The Japanese have known for centuries, what we Westerners are just now beginning to realize: Moss is an incredibly valuable plant when it comes to soothing the senses and cleansing the air and water. Why fight nature, trying to establish a grass lawn in the shade? Work with it and grow moss instead.
