One thing we are excited about is how the production of GrainMate is creating opportunities for local businesses as well. Currently, we have 5 local businesses which are involved with Sesi Technologies in one way or another.
A local electronics distribution company helps us source electronic components. A local bag maker makes our leather bags. A local designer designs and makes the cloth branding for the bags as well as all other branding materials. A local carpenter makes the handles for our probes. A local embedded systems engineer helps with the assembly and testing of GrainMate.
So far we have helped these 5 businesses generate about $6000 in extra revenue in total within the last 4 months. As our production capacity increases and our sales grow, we hope to create opportunities for more local businesses and generate even more revenue for the existing businesses we work with.
