What is the “20” Story?
Many people have noticed that our phone number ends in “20”, our street address ends in “20” and our easy-to-remember website "www.am20.com" also ends in “20”. Well, there is an explanation behind that! The “20 story” started with the Pareto Principle of 80/20: our top 20% of customers provided about 80% of the incomes. This has led us to exclusively focus on excellent service for these top-tier commercial customers. We desire to give “20% more” than the competition to prove our worth to our “top 20” customers every day.
We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business and to become a value-added partner on your design and construction team. Please contact us for an estimate.
