Keystone Tile & Marble

One major hurdle for small but growing businesses like Keystone is maintaining a positive cash flow to offset costs and payroll. This was the challenge that Lydell Williams of Keystone Tile & Marble faced as he looked to take on bigger projects and grow his business. Thanks to PIDC’s Contract Line of Credit – which provides support to small, minority, women, and disabled owned businesses in need of a line of credit to fund contract-related working capital –Lydell was able to meet this challenge. “This is my neighborhood,” Lydell says, standing with his wife and business partner, Ruth, looking over the North Philadelphia Bakers Centre shopping center development where Keystone laid thousands of square feet of tile. “I grew up selling newspapers right across the street, and now, it feels great to help energize this community. It couldn’t have happened without PIDC.”
