Easing the Burden (Somewhat) During These Crazy Times

This is a message to all of Electric Bricks’ clients. So, raise your hand if you’re thinking about cash-flow right now. I know I am. It’s the grease that keeps our machines running smooth. But right now, when the whole world feels like it’s holding it’s breath, cash may be in short supply. I know many of our clients provide products or services that are not considered “essential”.

Open for Business, Ready to Help

The economic impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have cannot be underestimated, and I have a feeling that small business owners, like us, will bear the brunt of the fallout. But, like you, I’m not going down without a fight!

Keeping Our Motor Running

Since opening our new office in Patchogue (we’ll be posting more about our recent renovation soon), we’ve been literally swamped with work.

Everyone here at Electric Bricks has been working extra hard and making sure we continually exceed our clients’ expectations.

The Most Dedicated Employee at Electric Bricks

At Electric Bricks, we are fortunate to have many talented and devoted employees. Every day they bring their creativity and expertise to tackle all of the unique challenges our clients bring to us. It’s not an exaggeration to say that without them we wouldn’t exists. But there is one that’s been here longer than anyone else and goes above and beyond in ways no other worker ever could. And since today is National Dog Appreciation Day, it’s time to recognize that special employee – my dog, Nina.
