All of us, in our everyday lives, are faced with choices. We need to have the house painted – who do we call?, we need a new washing machine – who do we want to deal with?, we are planning a big family dinner – where do we buy all the groceries? All of those decisions are based on a few simple criteria that boils down to value, integrity,service, and trust. It’s easy – we deal with service providers who back up their claims, and treat us like we would like to be treated.
Those principles are magnified when it come to selecting an engineering or manufacturing partner. You’re not dealing with the sole concern of what’s best for you – you have to consider how those choices will impact your entire company. As an independent sales representative, focused for over thirty years in the Contract Manufacturing arena, I have had the pleasure of witnessing many companies wade through this process. It’s amazing how those decisive principles remain the same – value, integrity, service, and trust.
“We may not fit today, but as your company expands and contracts in wavering market conditions, know that we will be ready when you are.”
Echoing Dawn Hamel’s recent blog – “Coming Home“, I find myself delightfully reunited with the Coghlin family of companies (Columbia Tech, DCI, Cogmedix and Coghlin Precision), and look forward to guiding new prospective clients through their choice process with us. The senses of team effort, fair play, commitment to quality and customer success, community involvement, and that the foundation for strong business partnerships are based on generations of instilled family values, makes me proud to be working with the Coghlin Companies.
The approach is simple – “ Where can we help, and how can we collaboratively align resources to meet our mutual needs. We may not fit today, but as your company expands and contracts in wavering market conditions, know that we will be ready when you are. We consistently communicate on all program aspects with a dedicated Team of professionals committed to meeting your goals”.
