As a fabricator of HVAC duct, you’ve most likely invested in coil lines, plasma tables, duct formers, press brakes, and maybe even a spiral machine, along with training a skilled and efficient team that can produce the quality product your company is known for.
You may have in-house shipping or offer related services like CAD, shop drawings, HVAC estimating and take offs, or data entry automation. Probably, the further your company strays outside of its core mission and competencies, the less expertise it has. Simply put, it’s impossible to be the best at everything.
You know this instinctively, so it’s a good bet you already hire a number of external services such as: computer and IT services, accounting and payroll, and hiring and HR, rather than staffing up to handle them in house. Often the right answer is to bring in outside expertise that allows your team to focus on what they do best, rather than wasting time on jobs your team was never meant to do.
More than likely, sales and marketing fits directly into this category.
Word of mouth and referrals from satisfied customers will only get you so far. When natural growth reaches its limits, it’s time to call in the seasoned experts. Untapped opportunities in your market can quickly help you elevate your business to the next level by significantly increasing your sales.
When it comes to sales in the HVAC duct fabrication industry, you’ll often find in-house sales efforts led by people who have the industry experience and technical knowledge in the actual fabrication and installation of projects. They’ve come up through the ranks and they know what they’re talking about in terms of duct fabrication, materials, and installation processes. Unfortunately, sales and marketing skills were usually not a core part of their training. Think of it this way— marketing at Mercedes Benz is not typically handled by their top engineers and mechanics. That job is outsourced to Omnicom Group, a global marketing and communications firm that was designed to do nothing but sales and marketing in a specific industry.
Without disrespecting the knowledge, contacts, and hard-won success of in-house sales, outside sales teams can bring a fresh perspective, skills in making connections, strengthening relationships, and calling potential clients to action. A contracted sales team can help companies break out of existing networks to reach new markets.
It’s not true that you need to sacrifice industry knowledge, as the right sales and marketing team will have demonstrated success in the HVAC duct industry and the ability to complement your current efforts.
When you work with outsourced sales, you benefit from the extensive and evolving array of contacts developed by their sales and marketing team. At The Cincinnatus Group, we’ve been serving the HVAC industry for decades. Our expertise and our focus are in the field of HVAC ductwork, and when fabricators turn to us for assistance with sales and marketing, they benefit from our knowledge and contacts developed for many years.

We know where the growth opportunities are, which projects work within budget levels that would be right for your services, and how to best match expectations and cultures so that your growth can be as frictionless as possible.
In combat, every soldier has a certain view of the battlefield. Things look quite different to the man in the foxhole versus the fighter pilot overhead. But only the command center has the wide-ranging data and viewpoint of how the entire campaign is progressing.
When it comes to sales, in-house marketing efforts rarely make it beyond the foxhole. At The Cincinnatus Group, we have the advantage not only of the high ground, but of seeing evolving data from our many contacts and networks, including duct fabricators, sheet metal contractors, owners and developers, and even HVAC wholesalers. Our view is one of systematic ductwork materials management, giving us the unique experience and expertise. That makes us invaluable in terms of gaining insights from various data sets and viewpoints, all of which can be leveraged to your benefit.
At The Cincinnatus Group, our goal is not to replace in-house expertise as much as complement and advance the sales strengths you already have. After all, existing customer relationships are the foundation on which your business has been built.
Our goal is to bring new eyes to your efforts in the marketplace and see how we can help you outshine your competition, win new contracts, and establish profitable new relationships. We believe we are called to solve, where others struggle. We can help you:
