“In 2004, TEK Stainless Piping Products began developing an innovative way to provide more service to our customers. After approaching several key customers, we presented the concept of available inventory for timely order fulfillment on site, while reducing costs. The result is our TEK Xpress, a mobile warehouse and sales office product fulfillment unit.
Covering a 50+-mile radius in the Boston area, our TEK Xpress serves customers by processing orders, ship tickets and invoices on demand. Moreover, we mutually developed a key product list (inventory) for our mobile customers.
An authorized Parker Instrumentation Solutions Center distributor, our TEK Xpress holds inventory in excess of 500 line items. Inventory items include compression fittings and valves as well as a full complement of UHP products.
Visiting accounts once each week allows us to strengthen the relationships with our customers as we interact with everyone on-site from maintenance to receiving, warehouse, engineering and general managers.
Our TEK Xpress service offering is growing. If you have an interest on ‘getting on board’ please contact your sales representative or Mario Kerr”
