Seaboard Steel has been advertising with The Blue Book for almost twenty years. We find it to be one of the most effective means of targeted advertising for our business. With thebluebook.com, the exposure our company receives is quite broad, especially with the link to our own web site as well as the ability to receive and respond to bid requests via BB-Bid. We highly recommend advertising in The Blue Book to any company that wants exposure beyond the area in which it’s located.
Phil Stanhope
Seaboard Steel Corporation | Sarasota, FL

Between the project leads we receive from your online service, and the number of invitations we receive from having placed our ad, we are going to have an incredibly busy summer around here! Our only regret is that we didn’t place our ad sooner. We are also bidding more competitively thanks to your online service because we are finding more subcontractors who are providing us with better pricing. The Blue Book online is incredibly easy and user-friendly. It’s an invaluable resource and we use it every day.
Carol G. Saunders, Office Manager
Visual Electric, Inc | Frederick, MD

I wanted to thank you for our advertising program with The Blue Book. It has proven itself time and again to be a good investment for a growing business. With the print book, we have always received good calls and exposure which have lead to several jobs. With the added value of BB-Bid, we are getting invitations to bid on jobs directly from our prospects and customers as well. We will be increasing our ad size to ensure continued success, and look forward to many more prosperous years with The Blue Book. This is truly “the best bang for your buck” advertising for the commercial construction industry.

The Blue Book Showcase was a great opportunity for networking and marketing. It was great to personally meet with the various general contractors to introduce my company and myself, allowing them to put a face with the name. I left the Showcase with many job leads and the opportunity to pursue future projects. It was also an unexpected pleasure to get reacquainted with many contacts from past networking events. I look forward to the next Showcase and encourage The Blue Book to present Showcase opportunities wherever possible.

We would just like to let you know how successful our advertisements have been in The Blue Book. On average, three out of five new customers have found our name in The Blue Book and we have received many jobs from our ad - including one of our biggest jobs last year. We do believe that we would not have the customer base that we have now if it weren’t for advertising in The Blue Book.
Matthew Foley, Owner
Cobra Concrete Cutting | Chicago, IL

We want to thank The Blue Book for customer service where the customer always comes first! Our Blue Book Account Manager provides us with industry information, project leads and always takes the time to ask if we need any equipment or building supply sources.
William Mohler, President
Los Gatos Construction Co. Inc. | Milpitas, CA

Your project leads and the contacts we have cultivated through the book are invaluable. It has enabled our company to get opportunities we wouldn’t have been exposed to without The Blue Book!
Dale Wageman, Owner
Fresh Air Systems | Chatswoth, CA

I recognized The Blue Book would work, but I didn’t think it would work so fast! Carroll Drywall Systems became an official Blue Book customer in 2003 and we have already landed three jobs from your Project Lead System. I could spend 60 hours bidding jobs provided by The Blue Book. The bid system makes it so easy! One General Contractor even sent us plans overnight after simply replying "interested" on the BB-Bid system.
Sean Carroll, V.P. Operations
Carroll Drywall Systems Inc. | Elyria, OH

Our business continues to grow thanks to The Blue Book and we are looking forward to many more successful years to come. Most of our work comes directly from The Blue Book and we are receiving requests to bid on projects through BB-Bid almost daily. In fact, we have received 220 messages to bid in the past twelve months! We will be expanding our marketing program next year to get into additional classifications and are considering enlarging our ad sizes to maintain a prime position in The Blue Book.
Jeff Harrison, President
Harrison Drywall Inc. | San Francisco, CA

Just a note to tell you that we are extremely pleased with our advertising program in The Blue Book. We have made numerous contacts and landed several jobs as a direct result of The Blue Book. Not only have we renewed our program for another two years, we have increased it as well, to give us even more exposure. Seeing is believing and The Blue Book has definitely made believers of us.
Lauralee Klabik, Office Manager
Wojcik Builders, Inc. | Bedford, OH

We want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation of The Blue Book. We have been an advertiser in The Blue Book since 1999. As a result of having an advertising program in your book, we have received numerous calls and inquiries for our services. We always recommend The Blue Book to various contractors in the industry as a great source of information. We think the project lead system is fantastic and have received over 200 public invitations to bid in the past month! We just renewed our advertising program for another two years and look forward to a continued and successful relationship with The Blue Book.
Hector Cabrera, Jr., Co-Owner
Precision Group Inc. | Peabody, MA

We have been advertising in The Blue Book since 1994 and are very pleased with our ad program. The first job we received paid for our advertising for many years. The Blue Book has produced numerous jobs throughout the years. We use The Blue Book to find subcontractors as well, and look forward to a long and prosperous association with The Blue Book.
Thomas M. Love, Owner
Love-Hartmann, Inc. | Menlo Park, CA

Over the years, The Blue Book has helped our company tremendously in numerous ways. Not only does The Blue Book offer a professional way to advertise and become known in the commercial construction market, it helps with information finding and multiple aspects of the bidding process. The Blue Book has been a valuable advertising investment and a time-saver for day-to-day office tasks. I always highly recommend The Blue Book and can do so because I know the immediate benefits of it. We are extremely satisfied with the outcome of our ad program and will continue to utilize The Blue Book for years to come.
Olivia Schmidt, Secretary
C.R. Schmidt, Inc. | Warrenville, IL

Our company has been in the concrete construction business for the last seven years. We have utilized our past work experiences and knowledge to gain notoriety in what we do best. But since advertising in The Blue Book, our company has become better known to those in need of our services and has lead to many new clients.
Sam Pizzuto, Vice President Mfg
Prestress Systems of Florida, Inc. | Fort Myers, FL

Because of outstanding results from my ads, I have decided to increase my presence in The Blue Book. Through BB-Bid, I was contacted by Folsom State Prison near Sacramento, CA and I was awarded a large-scale job. Shortly after, I received a call from Travis Air Force Base from the procurement officer who had a copy of The Blue Book. My bid was accepted and I just recently completed the job. The Blue Book has certainly been a worthwhile investment for my company.
Victor Guerra, Owner
Air Doctor | Rohnert Park, CA

I want to tell you how pleased we are with our ads in The Blue Book. The amount of leads that have come our way and the jobs we were able to bid and win have more than paid for the cost of the ads. The Blue Book keeps our name visible among those who actually specify the products used on projects. Thank you for helping me renew for another two years.
Rickey Hargrave, President
Helical Concepts, Inc. | Wylie, TX

Just a short note to let you know how pleased we are with the exposure that Grounds Keepers has received from The Blue Book over the last four years. I was especially pleased with the response from management companies and owners with offices out-of-state, but own properties in Houston. It’s proof that not only is your publication being used, but your Internet product is including us on jobs that we wouldn’t have normally - unless we advertise in The Blue Book.
Matt Redlinger, President
Grounds Keepers | Houston, TX

We have received numerous calls and inquiries about our company from construction managers, general contractors, owners and design engineers from our ad in The Blue Book. In addition, we have had bid invitations to several projects that we would not have been aware of without our Blue Book advertising program.
Jim Shutts, Division Manager
Baymarr Constructors | Antioch, CA

The Blue Book is the right place for our advertising dollars. Our ads generated productive leads and RFQs on several commercial projects. Keep up the good work on your very accurate and easy to use Blue Book! BB-Bid Internet exposure is also getting our name in front of those not familiar with our capabilities.
Mike Fernandez, Advertising Director
Efficiency Production, Inc. | Mason, MI

We have advertised in The Blue Book for over 10 years. During that time, we dropped all other forms of advertising. The Blue Book is the only one that works. We get Blue Book calls all the time. Our field and sales staff regularly use the books as a good source of supplies and customers.
Loree Komsa, Office Manager
East Coast Shoring, Inc. | Lanham, MD

We have received several inquiries via the BB-Bid online bidding and procurement system. The Blue Book is a great source for us to find out about job possibilities we would not have been aware of otherwise. This is an excellent medium for any commercial construction-related business!
Sheri Belson, President
Belson Asphalt Paving, Inc. | Reading, MI

Four days after the event we landed a $190,000 job all because of the show... So I think Blue Book has been one of the best investments our company has made.
Rich Jones, Estimator
AGL Spray Foam | Media, PA

I'm using it as a launch platform for my company... these are all qualified leads I would have never gotten anywhere else, this is a big deal for a brand new startup company. It's a great launch for me and a great day for my business.
Jeff Fulkerson, Owner
Aerial Elements | Evans, Co

We were just recently profiled in The Blue Book and we've seen an incredible pick up in business just from the story that was profiled in the fall edition... and we look forward to continuing to see that pick up in business as the story is circulated.
Andre M. Conway, President
Alarm Service Company of America | Philadelphia, PA

Being able to tell our story and all the obstacles we've overcome through the years has been huge... I can't say enough about being the cover story and we thank you very much.
Mike and Michelle Grau, Owners
Professional Construction Inc. | Waukesha, WI

I am a first year member of The Blue Book and since I joined, my business has increased by at least 400%. The Blue Book is different than other marketing agencies as that it gives you the invitation to bid. I have clients calling me from all around the tri-state area soliciting me to work for them instead of the other way around.
Thomas Gallo, Estimator
Tantty Concrete LLC | New York, NY

The Blue Book has definitely helped us increase our sales. We really got our foot in the door with commercial jobs... and it's been helping us grow.
Sal Romeo, President
Romeo Electric | Bergen County, NJ

Powers Construction uses The Blue Book for multiple things. We use it to find new subs, coordinate with our existing subs for pre-quals. We also use it to look for new opportunities to bid... since we've joined The Blue Book is been a lot of value add for our company. We've gotten more exposure... we've been really happy with the whole Blue Book process.
Joe Powers, CEO
Powers Construction | Denver, CO

I just wanted to thank The Blue Book for being an amazing company to deal with. We've got multiple jobs in Washington and have been in a bind not knowing who to reach out to and each time The Blue Book has come through and has given us subcontractors who could bid on and are now in fact working on projects as of today!
Melinda Dumadag. Administrative Manager
Swinerton Builders | Portland, OR

It is my pleasure to recommend The Blue Book / One Team as an efficient and effective provider of web-based services for the commercial construction community. Over the past 20 years in construction, I’ve worked with a number of networks and systems for sourcing subcontractors and suppliers. The Blue Book system was the best 20 years ago and it stays on top today! In addition to getting our projects in front of the right subs and suppliers, the format available to contractors to see who is bidding and who is reviewing the plans is the easiest to work with. Our Estimator and Construction Manager loves the reports!
Nancy Watts, Vice President Administration
Jeta Builders, LLC | Atlanta, GA

I know you have other clients, you and your ONETEAM make me and my comapny feel as if we are your only clients! You have made my job 100% easier and have become my right hand when it comes to getting my projects out to other sub-contractors who have proven to be top-notch.
Dariana Torres, Senior Estimator
Sweet Construction of NJ, LLC | Middlesex, NJ

The Blue Book's ONETEAM service is as an outstanding & user-friendly program that The Austin Company uses regularly throughout our Pre-Construction efforts. ONETEAM's Vendor Wizard makes searching for subcontractors fast and easy, but what I appreciate the most is that they listen to our feedback and make every effort to improve and add features that my company can use to make the bidding process go more smoothly for us.
Mike Pierce, President
The Austin Company | Cleveland, OH

Tashcon has been using OneTeam for a little over a year now. We have found the system to be very useful in bidding out projects. The response rate from subs has grown drastically in the last year.
Jennifer George, Estimator
Tashcon Corporation | Campbell, CA

I highly recommend working with ONETEAM. They are extremely responsive, professional, and helpful. The quick turnaround on a request is most impressive and appreciated! During training they were extremely patient, helpful and showed me how to use the system to make it fit our company needs best. Customer service is quick to respond whenever we have any questions - no matter how small or big. The system itself is very user friendly and we get an excellent response from vendors all over the country. The tools to communicate with the vendors are straight fo1ward and easy to navigate. Once again... I highly recommend working with ONETEAM. It has changed how we do business in such a positive way!
Kim Shoemaker, Estimator
Powerhouse Retail Services | Crowley, Texas

Blue Book has been a life-saver! I used to stress over trying to find vendors when putting projects out to bid and now I don’t! I simply send the details to Justin and he does all the work. I’ve been put into contact with vendors that I would have never found on my own and I could not be happier with the process. Blue Book makes it very easy and has saved me a tremendous amount of time!
Sean Pierce, Estimator
Summit Apartments at Queens College | Queens, NY

We sincerely appreciate your efficient, gracious vendor services, the level of detail and accountability you have demonstrated on each project, and the way you conduct business as a whole. We have, and will continue to, recommend your service to other companies and contacts. Our team could not be more satisfied with your work, and we look forward to continuing this relationship!
Ana Figueroa, Manager
Housing Authority of the City of Union City | Union City, NJ

The customer service at The Bluebook Network is fantastic! I have dealt directly with The Bluebook Network for several years and the ease of posting projects and the follow up has always been excellent. This exceptional customer service is what keeps me coming back with all my project needs.
Johnny Hunkapiller
Von Braun Center | Huntsville , AL

We sincerely appreciate your efficient, gracious vendor services, the level of detail and accountability you have demonstrated on each project, and the way you conduct business as a whole. We have, and will continue to, recommend your service to other companies and contacts. Our team could not be more satisfied with your work, and we look forward to continuing this relationship!
Jason Ladd, Senior Client Services Advisor
Enviro USA, Inc. | Cordova, TN

The Blue Book has been extremely helpful in helping NAVCO to expand our base of service subcontractors. With The Blue Book's help, NAVCO found a service subcontractor in the Northern California area. We were able to sign this subcontractor up which has helped service our customers in Northern California!
Deana Suttle, Construction Project Manager
NAVCO Security Systems | Anaheim, CA

I contacted the Blue Book Network when just googling wasn’t enough... For many years I have been getting the Blue Book mails and I also have seen them in many of the trade shows. Their reputation was positive and professionally recognized... I went from struggling to find a contractor to having my pick from certified craftsmen in their respective fields. As we filtered through the Contractors we felt that The Blue Book Team had our backs in the search for a Professional Contractor!
Luis Cruz, Principal
Greencroft Condos | New Rochelle, NY

We were just trying to break into the Portland, OR market, and the subcontractor database that we had was not going to get us across the finish line. I had heard of the Blue Book, and started searching for local subs to help out on our first project... After giving them some project information, I had hundreds of subcontractors exposed to my project in a matter of 24 hours. This service was a real life saver for us, and we will definitely be coming back in the future... Thank you ONETEAM!
