Gap Analysis

SBA Certified Small Businesses helping each other succeed!


Most small companies lack the relationships, breadth and depth of capabilities, capacities and maturity in systems and processes to be competitive with larger companies.  Growth tends to be slow and wins tend to be small and tough to come by.  More often than naught, they are competing on price and not best value, leading to low profitability that risks long-term business sustainability.


Combine diverse capabilities, capacities and financial strength, across a Team of companies, to emulate what larger organizations provide.  Working together, a Team of small companies can aggressively increase their opportunities both in number and scale to deliver sustainable, profitable, large-scale, long-term growth. 

Our STAHL Family Team of Companies is like a Baseball or Soccer Team that works together to win games, not just one game, but many games throughout a season and over time. We market our Team as a consistent Brand that Government Agencies can trust as a Go-To solutions provider, with comprehensive, BIC, capabilities and capacities supported by consistent, systematic processes.
