Choosing the best vendor for your magnet purchase
If you operate an industrial/commercial process, chances are you want to build relationships with the vendors supplying your parts.
Greater familiarity with your application means they can help you with product recommendations and improved service.
Getting your magnets is just part of finding the right vendor. You also need to think about:
- The cost of the magnet.
- The quality of the product you receive.
- Speed of delivery.
- Responsiveness of service team.
When you shop around, take a little time to talk to your potential vendor and get a feel for the way they treat clients. The relationship could last many years, so good chemistry matters.
Cost, quality and delivery
?Cost, quality and delivery are front of mind for most commercial buyers.
Your vendor should have some way to show clear value in each category.
For example, we operate a complete manufacturing facility in-house, so we offer competitive pricing, controlled quality and accountable timelines.
This type of value helps us maintain longstanding relationships across industries – some since 1984 – where high volume, cost-sensitive solutions matter.
Lowest price isn’t always the best value. We don’t always offer the lowest price. Lower prices can signal lower quality product or product manufactured without accountable quality control measures.
Low quality can cost you extra in the long run, whether through missed deadlines, lost opportunities more frequent equipment repair downtime.
Look for the best balance between price, quality, delivery. It’s the best overall value we want to provide.
Service matters too
You can deal with a faceless vendor, placing orders online without ever talking to a representative.
Many businesses prefer building relationships in todays interconnected economy. The better your suppliers know your business, the better positioned they are to provide better service when you need it.
You should be able to get in touch with your vendor contact whenever you need. If your process is on hold because your magnets don’t perform, crack or fracture, lose attraction, you lose money.
Responsive service from a familiar contact keeps your business running smoothly.
