If establishing loan capital or lines of credit to purchase materials to be installed on this project is an impediment to your company bidding work, we will gladly work with your material suppliers to set up joint check agreements or assist in obtaining the same unit pricing as our suppliers to enable you to bid this project.

Wharton-Smith, Inc. will offer “Quick Pay Commitment” to all MWBE’s to assist qualified minority businesses with their cash flow, which means a commitment to pay MWBE’s within 20 days after the Contractor confirms that the work has been performed & completed properly.
