- Who is ENVIROBIDNET?
ENVIROBIDNET is the outgrowth of Grow Biz Inc., a company formed in 1995 to provide bid notification service in MA.CT & RI. In 1995 we started a revolution when we launched our fax bid service. Until that time, bid notices were clipped from newspapers, copied and mailed to clients. In 1997 we established the first 30 day free trial, which we still offer today. In 1998 we moved to an on-line bid notification system exclusive to the environmental field under the name Envirobids.. Due to customer demand we expanded to cover the entire US. Today, our dedicated staff offers over 90 years combined industry-related experience and we continue to listen, make improvements, and offer the best service possible and in a 'no gimmick' cost effective manner. We are the proven leader in the industry.
