“The bitterness of low quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten”
It isn’t often we open one of our blog articles with a quote, least of all a quote from one of the founding fathers of the United States of America- Benjamin Franklin, who as far as we know, was more famous for politics and leading than he was for metalworking and fabrication.
But what was true back in the 1700’s is just as true now in every walk of life; it’s the best feeling in the world to get a genuinely good deal, we know that at Selmach, we strive to offer that exact thing every day to everyone. But at the other end of the spectrum of course, is the frustration, anger and sheer waste of money that comes from being had, of falling for the spiel…Of realising through bitter experience that if something seems too good to be true, then usually, it is.
Our own company dates back to a time not so long after the death of the great Benjamin Franklin, so we know a thing or two about history, workmanship and the pride that comes with the quality and service we’ve provided throughout those years. That ethos has made us a market leader and if there are laurels to be rested upon, we leave that to others. We are too busy looking forwards, to the next challenge and the next client to impress. We have been around since the 1800’s and we’ll be here for many years to come, doing just that.
We strive to remain a company where prices and the quality of our service coalesce, to give the very best customer satisfaction. We won’t bombard you with sales calls, although we may get in touch to make sure everything is going well, and we won’t try and dazzle you with rock-bottom prices. We will show you first hand, the machinery you need, you can even use it in one of our national showrooms; we can give you guidance and advice face to face and we can share those two centuries of experience in our industry with you. That’s what we do, that’s whatwe are known for…
So the next time you are looking for anything, whether it’s a plasma cutter or a punch and die, we know that we can offer you the peace of mind that comes with quality, and the reassurance of fair prices and good availability, not just from ourselves but also from the organisations we partner with across the world. Organisations with an ethos like ours, and who we are certain can enhance our own product ranges and services.
Since we opened with a quote from the great Mr Franklin, it only seems right to close with the same and this one, to us at Selmach is just as relevant:
“Well done is better than well said”
Get in touch, and see for yourself…
