Out Smart Your Wear Issues with the Right Partnership

It seems the only time we grow, is overcoming the wear plate challenges we face. To defeat these trials, we must push outside of our own comfort zone.

A former mentor once said, “If you aren’t continuing to learn, you might as well quit or die; because you are just taking up space.” While painful to hear at times, it is close to the truth.

Or they replaced someone who had retired or changed companies, the first choice is to reorder what was used previously, unaware it failed in this application.

Everyone has more responsibilities today.
The unfortunate truth is everyone has more responsibilities in their work lives today. Simply finding time to learn something new for personal growth becomes harder every year.

As a result, people don’t have the available time to become a detective and go through the learning curve needed, to find the right solution on their own.

Like taking a guided tour in a foreign country, you don’t have to stumble around in the dark on your own.

The smarter move is to partner with someone who has already made the trip and can show you the short cut to take control of your wear steel headaches. This is the quickest path for your greater return on your investment.

Here at JADCO Manufacturing Inc., our focus is dedicated to compress your time to achieve results. Our job is delivering greater value for your investment.

Today thousands of people are searching online for a get-rich-quick scheme. As a result, they often fall prey to scam artists who take their savings, leaving them deeper in debt.

What makes JADCO different is how we view our customers. Wear resistant steel is developed to last as long as possible before you must replace it.

The key is replacing your impact and abrasion resistant steel on your terms, when it is convenient for you. Rather than having a dramatic failure, when you can least afford a breakdown.

A longtime customer summed it up perfectly:

“If I said that competition in American manufacturing has increased tremendously in the last two decades due in large part to the increasing presence of foreign imports, I doubt I would get much disagreement. As a result of that increasing pressure, the importance of business partnerships has an equally important value if industry is truly going to be successful in today’s environment.

As an employee of 40 plus years in the manufacturing sector of America I have seen and experienced the changing times of our industries. As we speak about business partnerships versus just ordinary salespeople; exactly what do I mean?

To start, as industries trend toward ever more streamlined operations, staffs get leaner. With the changing pace of technology, it is easy to see that industry must embrace partnerships with those suppliers, vendors, and contractors that support our needs.

They must bring a variety of technical expertise to the table. This means specific expertise is required to resolve chronic problems, improve productivity, and minimize downtime. Skilled vendors are becoming even more important, often more critical than the quality of the products we purchase.

While the quality of products sold must deliver on their promises, the technical expertise to evaluate the myriad of products available to make the correct application is just as important.”
