They even offer one of the strongest warranties in the industry with 5 years parts and labor. That shows they believe in their product. And because they are so local, response time to an issue is rapid – the one time I had a problem with a delivered heater, they replaced it the SAME day with a brand new unit!

SCORE is a excellent organization. It has 300 chapters across the U.S. and offers FREE mentoring for small businesses. I used them as a resource when I started OTPS and they were of great assistance. Most mentors are retired industry executives looking to give back/contribute to the community. Interestingly, the Mannasota chapter of SCORE is one of the top chapters in the country, not only due to its leadership but also due to the great ‘retired’ industry leaders who now call Sarasota/Manatee their home. Don’t pass up this wonderful resource if you need local assistance with your company – or if you have a talent to share with others.
I love this company’s name. Again, it says it all…Urine Good Hands – ha ha, that’s classic. We use them to screen our new employees to insure there are no “surprises” or hidden drug use issues. Just one of the steps we use to help guarantee we are hiring the best people for our firm.
