Atlanta MBDA Advanced Manufacturing Center assists Sirius in securing $6.6 million contract
Customer Profile: Located in McDonough, GA, Sirius Chemical Group, Inc. dba Global Water, LLC, was founded in 2004 by Jesse Storr. Sirius is a manufacturer of sanitation cleaners and a provider of licensed technology of high performance products, which enhance the cleaning process and maximize safety in commercial, industrial, and food and beverage facilities. The company leverages its intellectual capital to meet customer needs. The leadership focuses on innovative product development, equipment design and a partner network to make customers more productive and efficient, and to make work conditions safer as they improve the environment.
Situation: Jesse Storr’s plan is to create employment for Americans and to provide clean drinking water to 130 million homes. He contacted the MBDA Center in Atlanta for assistance with developing a business plan to support the company’s growth.
Solution: The MBDA Center staff researched sources of capital, provided introductions, assisted in developing presentations, and provided sales opportunities through client networking programs.
Results: Thanks to the MBDA Center’s efforts, Sirius Chemical Group secured a $6.6 million contract, which represented more than a 90% growth rate.
According to Storr, working with the Atlanta MBDA was a great match. “The MBDA Business Center staff has skills that fit our business model perfectly,” Storr said. “The account manager not only had a strong business development and chemical background, she also had practical experience with water. This opened the door to establishing additional resources necessary for our company to move to new levels.”
