SBA -Small Business Week
In honor of Small Business Week, the Vermont Small Business Adminstration office featured three of its superhero entrepreneurs.
“Gordon’s window treatments are fancied halfway across the globe in Australia and New Zealand (a blogger Down Under recommended them a few years ago, showing the influence of social media on modern marketing). Upwards of 20 percent of their approximate $3 million in sales are exported outside the US. “
“While continuing to do retail at their facility in Williston, their future success lies with commercial sales, solar shades and Secur Shades.“
Owner, Gordon Clements said, “…not only is Gordon’s the only manufacturer of shades in Vermont, you’d probably have to go all the way to Boston to find another one. “
“Gordon Clements started Gordon’s Window Décor in 1986 by building shades in his basement. He moved into Fort Ethan Allen in Colchester in 1987 and called that home for 25 years. The business has grown steadily and now has over 26 employees supplying shades and comprehensive window treatments to businesses, schools, and homeowners all over the world.”
