Ever since its origins, Spartan Tool has focused on selling directly to the end users of our equipment. We think this offers significant benefits to our customers. Today we have dozens of Territory Managers employed throughout the United States who routinely call on drain cleaners, plumbers, maintenance staffs, municipalities and other customers, showing up at the customer's door with a truck or van filled with equipment and parts, so that we can satisfy a customer's requirements right on the spot. This also allows us to engage the customer and determine exactly what the customer's needs are, be it equipment, training, repairs or just an outside perspective or grain of wisdom that our Territory Managers might have gleaned over the course of their travels.
Our Territory Managers have a substantial background in the plumbing industry, and many are former drain cleaners or Master Plumbers themselves. The credibility and knowledge of having been in the trenches themselves allows our Territory Managers a unique perspective on the equipment, and more importantly how to make money using it. This direct-to-the-customer, consultative selling approach has yielded the dividend of close, personal knowledge of the challenges and opportunities that face the drain cleaning market.
