Some Concerns on How We Differ from our Competitors

  1. Very Little “Off the Shelf” Sales
    Our tools are made and inventoried to our customers requirements. We don’t tie up capital in inventory that we hope our customers will buy someday. We make exactly what you want and get it to you as fast as possible.
  2. No Fancy Sales Materials
    We don’t squander money on fancy catalogs and pretty marketing materials. The quality of our tools and the service we provide is the only marketing material we need. We also don’t use a standard price list.
