The life cycle of any business can be divided into 3 phases namely; survival, earning profit and growth. At first look, these phases seem so easy to attain and everyone thinks that he can efficiently manage a business of his own. Heraclitus of Ephesus once said, “The only thing that is constant is change.” In last decade USA has gone through a lot of changes and the US Market has experienced some huge changes. In last decade, the business and the nature of doing business has constantly evolved and so the competition in US Market.


One of the main feature of business is that it can survive and grow in any part of the world. Business does not mean a large organization or a company; on the contrary, business a concept, more like an art that is based on certain universal principles which should be followed to set up and run the business. One can find a successful business in hot deserts and coldest regions of this world.

One such region in United States is Kalispell, located in North West Montana. It is the largest city and commercial center of North West Montana having an approximate population of 100,000 people. The city is also known as Gateway to Glacier National Park, which makes Kalispell a commercial and tourist hub of North West Montana. This region is a land of opportunities for those who want to be independent and start their own business. But as it is said, ”Every good thing in this world comes with a price to be paid.”; similarly this city has challenges of its own and not everyone can face the challenges offered by the city and its market.

One of the main difficulties of doing business in this region is the temperature of this region. The average temperature of this region is 26.80 F and average low temperature is 16.40 F. This increases the challenges faced by the businessmen, firms and companies operating their business in this region. Another challenge is the safe and long term storage of equipment in this region, as the temperatures are extreme; the equipment need systematic storage and effective and efficient handling. Some of the safety measures to be taken while storing equipment in the regions with extreme temperature like Kalispell are:

* Proper Storage Facility :

Nothing in this world will last forever, not this world itself; but we can increase the life span of our equipment by carefully handling them and taking good care of them. The first step of this process includes proper storage facility for the equipment. Some equipment are very sensitive to extreme weather and climate conditions. Consequently, storage units kalispell are needed to be kept in a place which can protect them from the extreme weather conditions outside. This step can highly increase the life span of equipment and will result in the long term storage of equipment in Kalispell. One can store their equipment in storage units or garage.

* Better Business Management:

Better business management not only comprises of better performance and better services to the customer but it also focuses on how business is maintaining its assets which is as important as customer satisfaction. Assets and equipment are essential items which every business needs for its proper functioning and working. On the other hand, if proper attention is not paid towards these vital aspects of business, a business can incur huge loss, either physically or financially. So, this becomes very important for the business to keep an eye on the assets and equipment which are being used for the proper functioning of the business. If there is a good management for these, the growth of business will increase over time as the money invested in assets and equipment is mostly one-third to one-fifth of the total capital invested in the business.

* Proper Handling Of Equipment’s :

The equipment should be handled properly so that they stay in good condition and last for long period of time without serving and maintaining them. Expert personnel should be hired to use the equipment who have deep knowledge about those equipment and who could take good care of them. This in turn increases the life time of equipment and also help to bring down the expense of maintaining the equipment as they are used by the experts, the experts use those equipment efficiently and effectively.

* Regular Servicing & Maintenance :

Businesses using heavy machines like cranes, lorries etc. focuses on regular and proper servicing and maintenance of their equipment, as the machines can broke anytime, anywhere; which can lead the project not to be completed in the given deadline. To avoid these catastrophic disasters, regular maintenance and servicing is required and in places like Kalispell which have such extreme temperature, the importance of servicing and maintenance is greatly increased. Regular servicing of equipment also increases its life span and help in long term storage of equipment. This in turn decreases the expense of business as the business need not to purchase new equipment often.

Undoubtedly, Kalispell is not the best place in this world to do business, but if we start searching for the best place we are never going to find one. One of the main problems that is faced by the businesses of Kalispell is the question of storing of equipment for a long period of time in such temperatures. The only answer for this question is to follow a scientific approach to solve the problem and correcting the previous errors and mistakes which were made and by learning from those mistakes. This also includes a good management of business and its equipment. Because of such extreme climate conditions in Kalispell, the equipment demands some extra attention and a systematic approach of using, storing and maintaining them. All this, if done appropriately, is surely going to result in long term storage of equipment and over time this will also increase the rate of growth of business.
