PLAINFIELD N.J.–-Segundo Flores, the President and owner of F&C Professional Aluminum Railings Corp., in the early ‘80s, followed his dream of bringing new machines and technology to a business he knew well, he mentioned in an exclusive interview with NJ News Jersey reporters.

By 1983, he started working in the same type of business, though he did not own it, Segundo said of his early days in the US, after leaving his native country, Ecuador, where his father taught him the business. He credits his dad, who had his own shop in Ecuador, for teaching he and his brother get started in the US in 2002, first using his garage as a home base. 

As the growth of building in the area took off, Flores recalled feeling happy to find some initial customers who liked his craftsmanship.

“I said: god thank you,” recalled Flores. Segundo mentions " We service New Jersey and New York! Middlesex County. Essex County, Monmouth County, and Staten Island.

Customers saw his honesty as he grew the business – acquiring more and more work. And, he now has 30 plus employees, he said. My sons sell better than me and they are an integral part of the business.

Asked to name two things he is known for, Flores said: Being able to “do any design the customer likes,” and teaching his family to do better than himself throughout life.

“Customers could come in with photos of [railings at] their home in Portugal,” for the company to duplicate, said Flores, and it’s not a problem.

“Some of my first accounts on the commercial side were from Toll Brothers, Avalon, and Hovnanian Enterprises,” added Flores.  

“We build it here at our production facility at 1149 West Front St. in Plainfield, New Jersey and make it fit when we install it,” said F&C project manager, John Gaster, adding that the firm never uses rivets or fasteners such as screws to assemble its frames.

Moreover, Gaster explained that 90 percent of the time, posts are cemented in, while the company’s welded construction for self-latching gates, for instance, stand up to virtually anything with respect to durability.

While most people stick with aluminum frames, many other types are available, noted Gaster. 

One favorite system is F&C’s stainless steel, see thru railing, with tempered safety glass – which F&C Professional Aluminum Railings Corp. can install as a replacement for your original stairway railing.

It is not necessary to make a trip to F&C’s showroom in Plainfield although, your always welcome! The company’s trucks are equipped with color samples, various types of paint coatings, profile samples, cover plates, and many accessories/parts you can see, such as the 3.5-inch ball caps that are used to set off posts, among other parts. The sales person will come directly to your home for convenience.

Entrance gate and fencing is not a problem for F&C! We can do a gate as high as 15 feet and the fence would surround the perimeter. Famous Actor Steven Segall was one of our clients. Our sons Fitzgerald and Carlos are working in the business and recently launched a business in supplies all while going to College.

Dr. Gopinathan Nair discussed with our and reporters how our bodies accumulate toxins due to food habits, life style, and environment. It is important to detoxify our bodies through an Ayurvedic detoxification process known as Panchakarma. Panchakarma consists of five cleansing type treatments which will eliminate many of the toxins in our bodies. While Panchakarma is prominent in the culture of India, Dr. Nair expressed how he saw the need more and more for Holistic, Ayurvedic and Panchakarma here in the United States.

Your pulse is the signal of life in your body and Dr. Nair, by taking a “pulse reading”, or Nadi Pariksha , can ascertain certain detailed information about a person’s mental and physical health. Once Dr. Nair makes her comprehensive  diagnosis, she will recommend what preventive steps and courses of action are to be taken, which could include various Ayurvedic treatments, yoga and exercise, herbal supplements and essential oils, massage and body work therapy and more.

CRANBURY, N.J.—David-Douglas Brown, NJ Hall of Fame Inventor has recently incubated a new Company and  Powered by Yellow Pages ONLINE, which had its soft launch in 2017, powering the media side of the business with the objective of expanding the project nationwide. The project began with David’s vision on an idea for a new technology for small to medium sized businesses locally and nationwide. We also can service new businesses with rapid service! The new technology created connects key words to algorithm in all relevant Search Engines including GOOGLE YAHOO BING etc. The technology will drive the story to the top of the organic search. Reporting on this exclusive interview our reporter & sales representative Sharri Schneider. David mentions "it’s basically a secret recipe or you can say smorgasbord of data elements streaming into the engines". This creates a huge bump both organic and boosted for our client, “The boosted part is on the Social Media side in which we work with Facebook who recognizes us as a recognized media source” I’m excited to say we are a proud Member of the NJ PRESS Association as well! David-Douglas recalled how in meeting and speaking w/ prospective small business owners, it became evident that the clients really wanted to talk about how their businesses started, their hopes and visions for their businesses, what their businesses are about, their services offered and how the businesses are evolving and constantly changing. Mentioned earlier but very important FORTUNE 500 Companies have been making good use of in-house Public Relations Departments for many years.This benefit gives them the ability to get out their branding message within a very short time to millions of people. My dream is to level the playing field with those Fortune 500 Companies and that every small to medium sized business will have a similar go-to by just calling our newsroom hotline. The advantage of this is so important and business owners are seeing this now because we are expanding faster and faster each day. We are also controlling company growth at this time and have improved our process to a point where we can have a client up and running with a few weeks or days depending on urgency. In the last six months we have also signed on many SEO/SEM Companies as strategic partners whom sell technology P.R Services as an add-on. Our technology makes the SEO/SEM Companies look like the hero within their own customer base. The internet is the wild west right now and you need to be aggressive. We are here for you and can explain in detail what is best with all the confusion!

To meet this need for small and medium sized business, David wanted to interview these entrepreneurs, have their stories professionally written and then distributed as part of their advertising package into social media world.

“If you are a small to medium sized business owner, you should give us a call sooner than later 609-619-3416 because we are fulfilling a need that was not accessible in the past! We are affordable and so well targeted. Times have certainly changed!  David reminds us.

Research demonstrates that when a business has more and frequent stories out there, there is better potential for visibility when people are doing key word searches and for the business to be successful.

One of the most important factors for small and or medium businesses is the trust factor. For instance, many of our clients are in service oriented businesses such as: construction firms, plumbers, electricians, cleaning firms that will often be coming into your home and or your work place. Although, we will service all categories A to Z including… Accountants, Landscapers, Doctors, and everyone can use this technology! When we meet with clients, we meet with the business owner(s) him/herself and in doing so, we are establishing a trustworthy, collegial relationship. After an arranged meeting and interview with the owner, the story is written up AP style, and then it is sent back to the client for feedback and to ensure the owner is completely happy before public distribution. We also will include photographs, videos, and any links the client’s requests.

David’s background is in itself an interesting one especially with his inventing. David graduated from Stockton University located in Pomona New Jersey.

Over 60 Business Owners Traveling To New Jersey To Learn How To Become ‘Relentless’ For Business Growth


East Brunswick, NJ – May 15, 2018 – CEO Warrior is a New Jersey-based coaching and training company for service businesses. From Tuesday May 15 through Friday, May 18, more than 60 business owners from around the country will be at CEO Warrior’s Headquarters in East Brunswick New Jersey for training, which includes highly respected business experts, in-depth business training sessions, and even fire-walking.


Business Owners Will Learn An Unexpected Trait Of Business Growth


“One of the most powerful traits for a business owner to lead his or her company successfully is the trait of being relentless,” says Mike Agugliaro, co-founder of CEO Warrior. “Yet, very few realize the value of this trait so it’s often overlooked, and companies suffer.”


From May 15 through May 18, more than 60 business owners will come to East Brunswick New Jersey to learn the value, power, and opportunity of what it means to be relentless in their business.


The event will take place at CEO Warrior’s Headquarters and includes four full days of training, interaction, guest speakers, and even some unexpected activities, all designed to train business owners how to grow their businesses.


“We dig in with powerful, field-tested strategies,” explains Rob Zadotti, co-founder of CEO Warrior, “and we’ll also be focusing on how to build this overlooked skill of being relentless, which will help business owners take their companies to the next level.”


“Most people start something and stop it too quickly,” adds Agugliaro, “but when you learn to be relentless, you become like water: which looks like it flows around an obstacle but over time has the power to cut through rock. That’s what participants will learn this week.”


The Experience Will Be Unique And Memorable For Attendees


“This isn’t like the kind of training you might see at other industry organizations,” says Zadotti. “We hold these events two or three times a year and we’re always changing things to create a new, powerful experience each time.”


During this Relentless event, participants will spend time learning from Agugliaro, Zadotti, and the CEO Warrior team (which includes Master Advisors and support staff). Business owners will discuss challenges and opportunities that they are experiencing and they’ll receive in-depth training, including specific strategies and resources that they can bring back to their companies to apply.


Participants will also hear from well-known guest speakers, including Tim Grover, author, speaker, and performance coach for such athletes as Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, and hundreds other NFL, MLB, NBA, and Olympic athletes. “Tim Grover will show business owners who to be relentless in business in the same way that athletes are relentless at the top of their sports.”


Another highly respected guest will be Kevin Axtell, Director of the Fire Walking Center. Through his dynamic skill of fire art, Axtell will dazzle the audience with magic and stunts. “It’s a powerful and life-changing practice,” says Agugliaro. “The business owners who participate will be transformed in their minds, which will have a profound impact on how they lead their businesses.”


Only Select Businesses Are Able To Attend This Exclusive Event


CEO Warrior trains business owners from all over the world. However, not everyone is able to attend this Relentless event. “We have public events, such as our Service Business Edge event from June 12-15 that are very popular and widely attended because of guest speakers like business expert Jay Abraham, direct marketer Brian Kurtz, and New Jersey business expert Mike Michalowicz,” explains Rob Zadotti, “but events like this Relentless event are closed to the public. Only those who have committed to a longer-term journey with CEO Warrior, by joining the CEO Warrior Circle, are able to attend.”


CEO Warrior Circle is an exclusive high level mastermind group that select business owners can apply to join, and members have seen dramatic growth in all aspects of business, from recruiting to marketing to profitability.


“When people hear about these closed events, they always ask us, “How can we take part?” Agugliaro says. “It’s not as simple as showing up. But for those who do get here, the transformation is life-changing.”


More About CEO Warrior And Its Co-Founders


CEO Warrior co-founders Mike Agugliaro and Rob Zadotti are New Jersey success stories themselves. They founded a different company, Gold Medal Service, in 1995. At first that company struggled and nearly had to shut it down but then they discovered the strategies necessary to build that company to over $32 million a year before they sold it in 2017.


Agugliaro and Zadotti also founded CEO Warrior, a high level coaching and training organization focused on helping other service business companies learn and apply the same strategies that helped them at Gold Medal Service. From HVAC, plumbing, and electrical companies to dog training, from financial services to martial arts studios, CEO Warrior holds training events regularly at its 10,000 square foot facility at 154 Tices Lane, East Brunswick, NJ 08816.


CEO Warrior works with business owners across the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, creating a global movement in the home services industry. The company helps tradesmen grow their businesses and have the lifestyle they want from the business they have.
