Now now Riva,

look carefully at what i said, i didnt say that it was a huge market.
I said it is rapidly developing and the manufacturas are all expanding to meet a rapidly growing demand for ribs.

Welcome to the forums anyway

No doubt Ford make more cars per day, but surely if the demand is there, companies should have facilities in place to accomodate calls.
Once the current order books are complete, there needs to be new ones in the pipeline and the only way to have these lined up is to talk to people.
By the way, I have had good responses from all the rib manufacturers I have contacted over the past year so I'm not having a go at anyone inparticular just the British syndrome of not calling back or talking on the phone.
Everyone to their own and that's mine!

Were not talking about boats.

Were talking about RIB's. Now find a statistic for how many RIB's have been sold in the last year compared with the year before.

Mine said,
"Talk to the clients and find out what they want" That's what will determine the market. It also improves production runs and will reduce overheads. This in turn will allow more people to be employed to answer the phones.

"It's good to talk"
