Do your customers Perceive your Value?

 
 

How often do you ask yourself; do I want to save money or make a profit?

Studies show that 30-40% of people will buy price every time, that is the bad news for many that play in that arena: Those who sell on cheap prices do so because they know what their product is worth. Whoa....

Also, it tells me that the customer didn’t perceive any value and therefore there was none.

In today’s premier post minute, we want to give you some ideas for yourself to show value to your customers.

if 30-40% buys on police then the good news for the rest of us is that means 60-70% will buy value.

Who needs a little Safety help?

 
 

Over the last 6 months, all safety measures have had to change not only at home but at the shop too. Now everyone must wear a mask indoors which cannot be very productive for shop employees.

We have been in many shops and having our temperature taken and filling out health and safety questionnaires as this is now become the norm.

Plus, we have seen all different levels of safety and it really depends on what suites each shop the best.

In today’s episode of the Premier Post Minute I am going to discuss the old saying......safety first!

So, if you need a few tips or suggestions on how we can help you to implement more safety, just let us know. Call, email, or text us the word “Safety” to 414-254-5150.

We look forward to you becoming one of our customers, but we can only do that if we all stay safe and healthy.

Just remember Safety rules are your best tools!

Enjoy your day and continue to wash those hands!

Lists that make you think and create

 
 

There is a new book coming out by Michael Heppell called 17.

It is a book about lists of 17

17 The little way to get a lot done, increase your productivity, remove wasted time and accomplish more than you ever thought possible

17 is your ultimate productivity guide,17 minutes is short enough to create a sense of urgency. Yet long enough to get something done. Michael Heppell is brilliant, and this is his first book in 8 years, and you should buy it.

I am personally excited to get my copy of his new book to read and reread.

But it made me think, Do we make time to make lists of the best things we each do in business?

In today’s premier post minute, I want you to remember back to what was best for you as history always has a way of repeating itself.

So, do you love your job? What were the best projects you have ever won? were they the most fun? And most profitable? who was there to help you get the project done? Who has been the best employees you have hired? And What were the best machines you have ever bought?

It is good time to reflect on this and see what made you most happy with each of those? Was the best project because you made a new relationship? Was the team best because they were most dedicated and confident about getting it done? Was the best employee hired because they gave it their all and cared about the job? And was your best machinery purchase because of the machine or was the dealers service and support was the best?

I challenge you today to take a moment for yourself and think how would you answer these questions?

We would love to have you as one of our customers but not before you have a chance to think about what made you most happy in the past and then call or text us the words “happy again” and we will get you your copy of the book 17 plus we will set up a meeting to discuss how we can help.

What do all these promises mean?

 

Why do so many Machine Tool Dealers make so many promises? Some say their mission is to make sure your machinery operates in top condition. Isn’t this obvious that the equipment your sell should run at top condition?

Or some say what to know that makes us great? Why do you have to tell us you are great?

Or the best one, we have the lowest prices in town. This one tells me you have no value, so you just drop your price to compete.

On today’s premier post minute, we wanted to let you know we are letting our customers do the talking.

Our best customers become our friends and friends will do anything for each other.

So ask around to some of our customers and see what they say about us. And also ask about our products and see how they help make them more productive and most importantly profitable.

At Premier, we are not going to tell you how great we are, we will let our customers and vendors do the talking.

We would love to have you as a customer or better yet another one of our friends.

Satisfied Customers or Loyal Customers?

 
 

We have been extremely busy helping some of our most loyal customers lately, notice I did not say satisfied customers. I said loyal customers.

So, let me ask you, would you like to be a Satisfied customers or loyal customers?

In today’s premier post minute, We wanted to discuss how our loyal customers are our most successful customers.

When you think about It, I would never want a customer to be just satisfied! I heard it put another way from a young man named Jeffrey Gitomer. Would you want your wife or husband to be satisfied or loyal? Whoa when you put it like that it makes you think.

I personally would take loyal all the time as they will continue to buy from us because of that loyalty.

And that is a big part of our success, we have loyal customers who become our friends and we do whatever it takes even if our ass falls off.

We also have vendors that are not only loyal to us, but we are total loyal to them.

If you want to experience loyalty with your machine tool vendor, you can reach out to us.

We would love for you to become one of our loyal customers.

Let us start by emailing to texting me the word “loyalty” and we will invite you to meet with some of our customers to better understand how loyalty can work for your business.

Enjoy the great day and continue to wash those hands!

Machine Tool Builder or Just an Assembler

 

As a young man who is relatively new in the manufacturing industry, I was pretty shocked to learn in a short time of how many manufacturers there are for machine tools.

I was just as shocked to learn some differences between assemblers and true builders… which made me think, do you know who really builds your machine?

Hi, I'm Matthew Gintert with Premier Machine Tool Midwest and on today’s episode of the premier post minute I’m going to share some of the critical things I have learned in what makes a quality machine tool builder.

The first thing I noticed was how many builders are really only assemblers and not true machine tool builders. Most are not pouring their own bases. Most are buying their spindles and tool changers from multiple suppliers? But how do you know? (Point your finger at the viewer)

The second thing I noticed was component inconsistency, have you ever had two of the same machines that you thought were identical only to learn they don’t have the same components in them. You learn they used one brand of ball screws or spindle bearings on Monday because they were cheaper and easier to source and then use a different brand on Tuesday? Which day was your machine build on?

Working with Premier Machine Tool has been absolutely amazing because we only do business with manufacturers that actually build the entire machine. Which results in the highest quality machine tools and focuses on customer satisfaction as their number one goal.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see inside of the factory and see if they are truly a builder or just an assembler? Most today are just assemblers who are looking only at profit and not building a quality machine tool.

How about learning how to join the Premier virtual tours that we will be hosting over the next few months to show you some true machine tool builders. Call or text the words “true builder” to (262) 254-5150 and we will connect with you with more details so you can join us in these virtual tours.

Graduate to a New Experience

 
 

Last Week, as I attend my sons High School Graduation I watched as he completes one part of his life and now opens a new chapter as he next moves on to College.

I thought of how many potential customers might be dealing with one manufacturer or machinery vendor who they may not be totally excited with their experience and are looking for something better in their next chapter.

In today’s premier post minute - We want to discuss the Premier Machine Tool Experience.

When looking for a machine most guys take the "cookie cut" approach and offer this model or that model and force customers to use a spreadsheet to see who might work best? 

But what if you could have a distributor who was different and came with Ideas. Not one idea, but more than one to give you solutions to find the right answer.

Wouldn’t it be great if they worked to better understand your expectations and goals. Not their goals, Your Goals!

If this sounds like the partnership you would like to be part of, we would love to have you as one of our customers.

 

So if your thinking you also need to graduate to a new experience like all those High School Graduates this year then lets talk.

Let us start by having you call or text us the word “graduation” and we will start with a free evaluation of which solution will be the right answer for you.

This is going to be a great day and please make it your great day.

Using machining “upside down” as an advantage

 
 

On today’s episode of the Premier Post Minute, we are going to discuss the benefits of being able to machine upside down with a GROB 5-axis machine.

First, you have the benefit of gravity working with you. When machining upside down the chips naturally evacuate from the work area meaning you do not have to stop to blow out chips every 20 minutes.

Secondly, you have better control over the heat displacement of your work piece. When the chips come out of the flutes of your tooling, they are hot, and that heat can transfer to your workpiece causing inaccuracies and loss of productivity.

GROB machining centers offer you almost limitless possibilities for machining parts from the most diverse materials and adapt to your requirements down to the finest detail. The compact design, large swivel range and horizontal spindle position are just some of the outstanding machine features that make GROB the ideal partner for your manufacturing facility. The new access-series rounds out the product range of GROB universal machining centers, offering ideal entry versions to the company's unique technology.

There are many more benefits to a GROB 5-axis machine, and I encourage you to reach out to me to learn more about how GROB can make you a more profitable by working smarter, not harder.

Text us “Upside down” to learn more about GROB and how their American made machines can impact your business.

Stay safe and be sure to keep washing those hands.

Keeping it definitely All in the Family

 
 

When you don't have to answer to stockholders how much better can you build a machines?

If you build the entire machine as oppose to farming out your parts manufacturing, do you gain craftsmanship and quality?

In today’s premier post minute - we want to discuss Hwacheon Machinery the family owned machinery builder.

Hwacheon is best known for their quality of machines and this is because of their philosophy from foundry to final assembly. They are one of the only builders to build the entire machine!

Our competitors are all becoming only assemblers relying on supply chains from all around the world including China.

When your supply chain is farmed out to outside vendors you lose control. Lose Control of delivery, lose control of quality and ultimately you are not a true machinery builder anymore.

Hwacheon is still a true machinery builder. Like I said before, From foundry to final assembly.

Since 1952, Hwacheon Machinery has been a World-Leading developer of high quality, highly productive, durable machining solution for precision milling and turning applications.

Mechanical craftsmanship, technical leadership, rigid quality standards, global presence, and excellence in service ensure their customers a consistent advantage in productivity. Hwacheon Machinery will drive to earn your confidence.

From Foundry to Final Assembly, It’s what sets them apart. Hwacheon is among the top 3 machine tool builders in Korea. Hwacheon’s dedication to creating fine machine tools has led them to become the top supplier for high speed cutting machining technology in Korea for Dies and Molds. Hwacheon is also a Top Machine and systems provider to the Automotive Industry.

We look forward to you becoming one of our customers.

Let us start by calling or texting me the words “control” and we will start with a free evaluation of which solution will be the right answer for you.

Today is an amazing day, enjoy yours!

Why do it twice, if you only need to do it once?

 
 

Do you like doing the same job twice?

Probably not… I know that I definitely don’t!

PPM- Reshoring Good Paying MFG Jobs- Interview Harry Moser

 
 

In this edition of the Premier Post Minute we are very honored to have our incredibly special guest- Harry Moser.

Harry is the Founder of Reshoring Initiative started back in 2010. Their mission is to bring good, well-paying manufacturing jobs back to the United States by assisting companies to more accurately assess their total cost of offshoring, and shift the collective thinking from offshoring is cheaper to local reduces the total cost of ownership. They are a nonprofit organization

Reshoring is gaining momentum throughout the country. Many companies have already repatriated some of their manufacturing efforts, and the Reshoring Initiative is continuing to spread the “return-manufacturing-home” message to help other manufacturers realize America is an advantageous place to produce goods.

The United States used to be the world’s industrial powerhouse!

Why Reshore?

There are many reasons for American manufacturers to reevaluate offshoring and consider reshoring. Companies are increasingly recognizing that costs, risks and strategic impacts previously ignored are large enough to overcome the shrinking emerging market wage advantages. They are seeing the benefits of proximity, i.e. producing in the market, especially when the home market is the U.S., still the world’s largest.

Thank you for your time today as we look forward to all of you becoming one of our customers.

Let us start by calling or texting me the word “reshoring” and we will get you more information on how we can continue this great effort of reshoring good paying manufacturing jobs back to the USA.

Every SECOND counts....for more PROFIT

 
 

In the Fabrication world every second matters when it comes to your profit.

So, are you getting the most out of EVERY SECOND that’s available to you?

In today’s episode of the Premier Post Minute, I am going to discuss how Eagle Lasers help you get MORE out of every second.

EAGLE Material Exchange:

Modern fiber lasers burn through a sheet or plate quickly, so it’s important not to waste time loading in a fresh sheet. Most pallet changers were originally designed for CO2 lasers, where cutting performance was slower. They often use hydraulics and take 30 to 60 seconds to exchange a sheet.

The fastest pallet changers today are servo driven and swap a pallet in under 10 seconds. Since a shop can change sheets 6 to 10 times an hour, you save one to two hours of cut time per week.

High production applications often require automation beyond the laser’s pallet changer. Automated material handling systems can store many types of materials and automatically unload and load the fiber laser’s pallet changer. Material handling automation can keep the fiber laser running as much as possible throughout the day and offer the opportunity to run a second shift unattended.

let us imagine that you can cut a full sheet of material in 45 seconds, and a fast pallet change on a comparable laser is 35 seconds. That would mean that over an 8 hour shift you are cutting 360 parts.

Now take Eagle Lasers 9 second pallet change and with the same part taking you 45 seconds to cut. In a full 8 Hour shift you will be cutting 536 parts, just from the time saved by the faster pallet change.

Now, imagine how much your profit would increase if you could complete 176 more parts per shift?

Why not start by learning how much more profit and productivity Eagle can give you, by texting me the word “MORE”.  

We look forward to you becoming one of our customers, and as always, stay safe and be sure to keep washing those hands!
