SHOW PREVIEW: Premier Post- Show Edition 2019

Customers want partnerships with their machine distributors, NOT fancy sales pitches.

Customers today have less time to be dealing with machinery salespeople, but they are more knowledgeable because of all they can learn from the internet. What customers ultimately want is a partnership! Chris Bell wrote a book called “Customers as Partners” that states, “effective partnerships can keep customers returning, through thick and thin, for better or worse, in good times and in bad.” Effective customer partnerships have qualities that can ensure their success. These are qualities the service provider must initiate, demonstrate, or replicate. While the concept of customer partnership generally implies a long-standing relationship, the feeling of partnership may be created in short-term relationships.

So, when I say customers want partnerships and not fancy sales pitches. For years I have observed many companies with fancy pitches trying to woo customers. At Premier, we have looked for and been most successful with our customers who are demanding, tough and fair. These customers want a partnership that works for them and when it does, they will work for us too. With our customers, we both don’t keep score, as we both know what is at stake and we take care of each other. We have a partnership with our customers, and we respect the relationship and work to exceed all their expectations.

When selecting a machine tool distributor to work with some customers select them by the brands they carry or by who the distributor is. But others want more from their distributor and they accept the treatment they receive as just the cost of doing business. Our customers are discovering Premier Machine Tool Midwest is providing MORE. They want more quality, better service and better machines and that is exactly what Premier provides. If you demand MORE, MORE accuracy, MORE productivity, MORE production and FASTER service and MORE support, then you should be contacting Premier Machine Tool Midwest.

We have been successful because customers that demand MORE are receiving MORE! We excel with the customers who deserve more, and our machines demand it. We are very selective of the companies we represent. What I mean by that is we demand them to have facilities in the United States and not be brought in by a professional importer who could lose or drop the line at any time and leave you, the customer, vulnerable. We demand more of them and this is due to us having a partnership with you and making sure we take care of the relationship. Some people may not care about this, but we know from our customers that this is a huge issue for them.

We invite you to stop in and help Premier Machine Tool celebrate our 8th anniversary at the Wisconsin Mfg. & Technology show in BOOTH #211. Let us help you discover more about the equipment we represent and more importantly about the people of Premier and how we start new partnerships and what you can gain from this type of relationship.

Sincerely

A.J.
