Choosing a particular industrial supply company to work with is the first step for most startup industrial, waterworks, telecom and construction companies. For those companies in the Houston area or throughout Texas and the southern states, a local company is an ideal option.
However, due to the location of Houston as a port city, this is a good option for companies operating in the Caribbean and throughout South and Central America. The city’s location with regards to rail lines as well as major interstate highways also makes it a natural choice for contractors throughout the rest of the United States.
Niche or Industrial Supplier
There are some suppliers operating specifically in niche industries. For example, a company may advertise as an industrial supplier but may focus its inventory and products for the oil and gas industry. Other niche suppliers may operate in the telecom, waterworks or the commercial and large-scale residential construction sectors.
There are a very small number of industrial supply services offering products across all of these categories. This is the ideal solution for most contractors as it allows for all projects for the contractor to be filled by one supplier rather than dealing with a different supplier for each job.
Ability to Meet Order Requirements
Choosing one of the large, established and industry recognized industrial supply services provides the benefit of knowing all orders, regardless of volume, will be filled. These companies have excellent relationships with suppliers due to the high volume of sales, allowing them to work directly with the manufacturer for orders outside of current inventory levels.
Expert sales and service teams as well as the ability to ensure delivery of quality and volume of products and materials are the key benefits in working with these types of supply services.
