SPEC/Ahearn Denning Machines are equipment distribution companies for the soft goods industries. But why should you, as the end-user, purchase from us instead of directly from the manufacturer? There are a number of reasons and advantages to doing your business with a distributor - I'll highlight a few of them here.
1. Choice - As a distributor, we are able to look at your specific application, budget and ultimate production goals and recommend a machine, part or service that will best fit you and your needs, versus trying to push a solution based on a specific brand.
2. Price - Our market is extremely competitive and we HAVE to be priced properly to maintain our presence as a trustworthy supplier to the soft goods industries. As a result, you can often find better deals and pricing with us than you can with the manufacturer that sells at MSRP.
3. Customer Service - We are well aware of the many supplier choices that are available to our customers so we pay particular attention to our responsiveness, price and inventory to ensure that our customers receive swift responses to inquiries, on items that can be delivered promptly at a competitive price.
4. Experience - We are not focused solely on one process or brand. We have increased our line of offerings over the years to include everything from software and fabric roll management systems to folding and packaging systems - TO INCLUDE EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. Spreading, Cutting, Sewing/Assembly, Unit Production Systems - you name it, we've been involved. When we visit customers to address a topic of concern, we're never looking at processes through a straw. Instead, because of our diverse range of offerings, we can take in the whole process to see if there are opportunities for improvement in the peripherals as well as for the topics at hand. From composite components for aircraft to T-shirts - windmill blades to suits - we're experienced in a plethora of manufacturing segments.
The bottom line is - as a distributor we can draw from a wide range of solutions to find the answer for our customers - that must be priced competitively and supported by our team after the sale.
