Understanding Process Matters
Outfitting a store is a lot like prepping for a wedding. For instance, a tremendous amount of planning and preparation is involved. Another similarity is that some things must happen before others can. And ultimately, how well you’ve chosen your vendors can determine your success. That’s why FM Display Concepts process accounts for each stage of your project. We use our project management experience to connect the dots for you, from coast to coast in the U.S.

Building a Relationship
The beginning of the relationship starts with what works best for you. We can communicate via Email, Phone, Video Conference, or meet face to face to discuss the project parameters. Do you want a single display case or an entire store? We can layout the work counter or backbar to minimize foot count for the operator to optimize efficiency. Or perhaps you know which products you want to sell, but are unsure of the best display method? We are here to guide you through your questions to help create the best visual of your products and market them successfully.

Information Gathering Process
Getting to the Core of Your Priorities
To help you decide FM Display Concepts is the vendor who can realize your vision, our real work begins. A map of the space (CAD or DWG file) gives us the exact dimensions. We work closely with you to find the pieces that suit your needs and style. We’ll also conduct a Troubleshoot Assessment to identify any potential installation issues. Then, in close consultation with you and your design team of architects and contractors (onsite meetings when required) we’ll create a full color rendering of your space. You’ll have as clear a picture as possible of how your new store will look to help you make the most informed decisions.
We’re happy to work with you to help you find your look. To return to the wedding analogy, the size of the budget determines the size of the event. Have a strict budget? We’re experienced in optimizing resources without sacrificing visually. Prefer to start with aesthetics and then work out the economics? We’ll provide you a quote once you’re ready to move forward. Should you opt to finance, we have relationships with leasing companies that readily work with businesses that have been open for at least two years.
The Process of Bringing Concepts to Life
After a very deliberate and detailed information verification process, you’ll approve the final rendering, finishes, and color choices. Once we receive a deposit, we place your order with Frigomeccanica’s Italian headquarters. On average, there is an eight to ten (8 -10) week window from order until arrival in our New Jersey warehouse. During this period, we review the project with your tradespeople and generate an MEP drawing with all electrical and plumbing connections within our scope of the project to confirm any onsite preparations needed before delivery.
Letting Us Set You Apart
Once your equipment is state-side, It is inspected and tested in our warehouse. Then, depending on your preference, it is shipped or prepped for FMDC installation. Although each project presents its own challenges, installations on the average take one day, with larger jobs lasting longer.
One of the things that distinguishes FMDC from other companies is that at least one of the partners, Adam Mucci and Michael Flaherty, make themselves available for every installation. They bring their decades of experience to meet unexpected challenges that each project presents, with a direct line to the Frigomeccanica designers to answer any questions that arise. Our entire team works with a proprietary pride to ensure your new store looks amazing. They even take their own pictures to show people later the store they helped build.
FMDC Will Be There For You
A Better Way of Doing Business
When the job is installed, some companies will disappear. FMDC will answer your calls. We know a good referral is the ultimate reward for developing strong relationships, and that’s what we strive for. We apply our motto, “Let Us Set You Apart” to each new project. We’ve built distribution relationships with some of the most innovative and distinctive manufacturers on the planet to build an inventory unlike our contemporaries. Just so we can, in turn, offer you the chance to distinguish yourself from the competition. Setting yourself apart allows you a greater profit margin – for the same products!
