Spungen Family Focuses on Revitalizing Strong, Loyal Distributor Relationships and Radically Change the Competitive Landscape
WAUKEGAN, IL and DALLAS, TX (October 17, 2012) —PEER Chain, a leading provider of industrial chain, today announced the launch of its new strategic distributor program, designed to streamline and enhance the company’s distributor relationships through a deeper focus on exceptionally loyal, strategic partnerships.
“The bottom line is that we must change the landscape for our partners to thrive in any environment,” noted the Spungens.
PEER President Glenn Spungen, along with his brother Danny and cousin Charles, kicked off the new program during the Power Transmission Distributors Association 2012 Industry Summit at the Hyatt Regency Dallas at Reunion in Dallas, Texas this week.
Aimed at restoring loyalty to a fragmented distributor landscape, the new program leverages the Spungen family’s trademark focus on providing individualized attention and maintaining close, personal connections with key partners to enhance the distributor relationship. The Spungens say building strong, loyal alliances with key distributors is critical to the company’s comprehensive, global strategy to transform the third‐generation family business into the premier supplier of chain for agriculture, oil‐ field, power transmission and other industrial applications.
“We recognize the critical role distributors play in our industry. We must eliminate barriers and friction identified as these new programs were being identified,” said Glenn Spungen. “This new strategy raises the bar for distributor loyalty in the industry. We intend to build deeper, mutually beneficial, strategic relationships that protect distributors, respect boundaries and streamline the competition.”
“As the Spungen cousins return to leadership at PEER Chain,” Glenn continues, “our family‐oriented philosophies backed by modern supply chain management and manufacturing technology will give PEER distributors a unique competitive advantage in the marketplace. This focus on distributor loyalty, combined with PEER’s reputation as a trusted industry ally, will be a win‐win for both PEER and our partners.”
As part of its distributor partners program, PEER Chain will be more active in the PTDA and other distributor‐focused industry organizations. During the PTDA 2012 Industry Summit Oct. 17‐20, Glenn, Charles and Danny Spungen, along with PEER Chain representatives Jeremy Fogo and Mark Mulcahy, will share the specifics of the distributor partners program to PTDA attendees in Dallas.
