Profit Is Not Optional

Most business owners are clear in their intent to make a profit, but some set their sights higher than others. How much profit do you need? Is a living wage plus a reasonable return on your investment enough to sustain your business? Probably not.

As we come out of our economic slump, most concrete pumpers are seeing sales increase. Based on the 2013 ACPA Financial Benchmark Study, 89 percent of members saw growth in 2012, with a median increase of 22.6 percent.
