Distributor of Building Products - Chicago
The company, located in the Chicago metropolitan area, is primarily a distributor of hollow metal products (metal doors and door frames). The company also sells wood doors and door hardware (e.g. locks.). This distributor has light metal fabrication and wood processing equipment in order to provide the capability of customizing products for customers. The company sells to dealers (such as hardware distributors, overhead door installers, industrial distributors, and lumber yards), OEMs, real estate management companies, and importantly, contractors. Unlike most distributors in other businesses and in the construction business, who receive an order for an off-the-shelf item and ship it out the next day, this distributor is involved in modifying most products to custom specifications. It must coordinate the design and delivery with numerous parties, including architects, engineers, and contractors. The company does not deal with large volume bid contracts. The company prides itself on having: (1) an extremely high level of customer service, (2) metal and wood light manufacturing capabilities to meet custom requirements, and (3) a product line made up of only industry leaders. This firm has been characterized as the Cadillac of local distributors in its niche. It is a true value added distributor. Management of the business is clearly strong from an operations perspective. It is able to maintain control of expenses, keep its receivables and inventory current, improve margins, and achieve a high level of customer service. In contrast, management is weak in soliciting new customers and in moving into new systems and technology that could reduce the cost and time of preparing proposals and could provide a more efficient program for coordinating order follow up. Annual advertising expenses were only $2,000. There is no company brochure, no direct mail program, no outgoing telemarketing program, and a limited outside sales effort.
