INNOVATIVE APPLICATION AT EAST COAST

East Coast Erosion Control utilized a $75,000 investment from Ben Franklin Technology Partners over a period of three years. During that time, the company made operational process improvements to enhance customer delivery performance, reduce cost-of-goods sold, increase efficiency, and maximize production capacities.
