SBSC specializes in the production manufacturing and construction trade sectors. The organizations we work with are small to mid-size firms, typically fewer than 100 employees or $50 million in annual revenue.

Who We are:

Chris and his granddaughter Layla

“Empowering clients to exceed their goals.” This statement drives every decision we make at SBSC. We are in the business of solving problems and building solutions. This has led us to offer such services as app and web development, IT support, graphic design, time studies, and continuous improvement programs. Our solutions are tailored to meet the needs of the client’s organization. We refuse to take a “One size fit all” approach with business products and services.

Our years of field experience and practical knowledge of our client’s industries distinguishes SBSC from other IT and technology firms. Unlike traditional business consultants, clients can expect SBSC to play an integral role throughout the entire course of their project. Proper implementation and change management will ensure the success of our customer’s investment. Our goal is to develop the client’s success and profitability through methodically planned and executed changes.
