For consumers, Cyber Monday is one of the biggest on-line shopping days of the year. For industrial buyers, the real deals are about value – and that means custom fabrication. Learn how Elasto Proxy adds value to your projects with custom sealing and insulation.
Ten years ago, a Senior Vice President for the National Retail Federation coined a phrase that describes what’s become an international marketing sensation. Cyber Monday, the marketing term for the first Monday after U.S. Thanksgiving, is now one of the biggest on-line shopping days of the year. The day that Ellen Davis named is aimed mainly at consumers, but industrial buyers like a bargain, too. Price is important, of course, but so are features. Yet neither matter if a product doesn’t meet your needs.
Custom fabrication isn’t the same as ordering an off-the-shelf product. It’s not like buying off-the-rack clothes on Black Friday, or ordering a blender on-line on Cyber Monday. Yes, Elasto Proxy has a down-loadable catalog of extruded rubber products. You can buy lengths of standard extrusions from us, and we invite you to learn more about all of our product groups – including molded parts. Where Elasto Proxy really adds value, however, is by solving your specific sealing and insulation challenges.
Not Like Clothes or Blenders
By listening to your requirements and analyzing all of your needs, our solutions providers can recommend custom-fabricated seals, gaskets, and insulation that are ideal for your application. How do we do this? Let’s start with some examples that show what we’re not. If you shopped for clothes at the mall on Black Friday, you probably had plenty of options, but only the ones you could see in the store. If you compared blenders on-line on Cyber Monday, you couldn’t choose distinct features from two different models.
Elasto Proxy let’s you buy what’s not in our catalog. We can also create custom solutions that you won’t find anywhere else. For example, let’s say you need tube rings for shock absorption. You won’t find these rubber parts in our catalog, but Elasto Proxy can custom-fabricate them from standard lengths of industrial tubing. Similarly, our website doesn’t list every possible type of custom insulation for heat and noise. Yet our solutions providers can create thermal and acoustic insulation from multiple materials.
Beyond B2C and B2B
Some business-to-consumer (B2C) websites seem pretty smart. They remember what you like, and may even suggest similar products. There are many great business-to-business (B2B) websites, too, and industrial buyers routinely request product information. A manufacturer’s on-line presence builds brand awareness, but industrial buyers don’t visit websites to become sales leads. Buyers want answers, and that’s why Elasto Proxy combines custom fabrication with on-line accessibility and a personal touch.
Phone calls and email messages aren’t the only ways to reach us. From Skype calls and Google Hangouts to file sharing and social media, there are many ways let us know what you need. Our solutions providers can even review your CAD files and suggest improvements to your seal designs. We may not be part of your company, but Elasto Proxy can extend the power of your engineering department. Then, through custom fabrication, inventory management, and shipping, we strengthen your entire supply chain.
