Wireless Industry Financing

This episode’s theme is wireless industry financing. A recent survey from Wireless Estimator was completed by 263 wireless infrastructure contractors and it revealed that new contractors entering the wireless business (meaning they’ve been in business for 1-3 years) had dropped to an astonishing 6% which is down 19% from the 2014 total.

About This Episode

In episode 17 of Gear Up with Gear Experts, we welcome Gear Expert® John Lamond back as our guest in the studio. John first joined us on episode 4 and is the National Sales Director for GME Supply.

We talk with John about:

  1. The increase in entry-level requirements and the age of a maturing industry;
  2. Profit margin and inter-company relationship building; and
  3. Long remittance periods.

This week we discuss our knowledge base. Topics include:

  1. The inspiration for setting up the knowledge base; and
  2. What types of content live there.

You can find the knowledge base for GME Supply by clicking here. And, you can find the knowledge base for Columbia Safety by clicking here.


We’d also like to take this time to remind everyone that while this show is meant to be fun, entertaining, and informative it is not intended to replace proper, in-depth training. Manufacturer’s instructions must also be followed and reviewed before any fall protection equipment is used. And proper training should be received before operating any equipment or before climbing.

Why do YOU Climb?

We’d like to hear from you about why YOU climb. Email us a voice message at gearup@gearexperts.com about why you climb and what climbing means to you for a chance to be featured on the show – and win some swag of course.
