Tradeshow Display Supports Sales Process Choreography for Cambria

nParallel’s Design Highlights the Color, Strength and Function of Cambria Quartz Surfaces

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 28, 2021 -- Cambria (www.cambriausa.com) produces quartz surfaces for countertops, vanities, floors and other applications. The company’s natural stone surfaces offer beautiful colors, strength and care-free durability. Cambria wanted their tradeshow booth to captivate retailers, architects and builders, and designers and consumers and engage them in the experience of the Cambria brand. To attain that vision, they turned to nParallel, the international brand communication, merchandising strategy and display agency.

“nParallel’s design is elegant,” said Jenny Sullivan, marketing manager, Cambria. “The displays at the perimeter of the booth focus attention on Cambria’s rich and varied color palette. The open design invites visitors into the interior of our booth where a video, and our sales people, explain and differentiate the qualities of our quartz surfaces. Presentation of actual product applications brings all our brand attributes home.”

“We were inspired to take a classic, architectural approach with museum-like displays of all the Cambria quartz surfaces,” said Shawn King, nParallel’s director of creative strategies. “The booth layout expresses and supports the sequence of the sales process for Cambria – beginning with the variety and quality of their colors, then product attributes and performance, and culminating with application examples.”

Cambria used the display in its 40x50 foot configuration at the Kitchen/Bath Industry Show, May 9-12, 2005 in Las Vegas, Nev. “The display worked perfectly,” said Sullivan. “We have also used the adaptability of nParallel’s design in 20x20 foot formats, and we continue to get very positive responses.”

Winegard’s Bob Howell Emphasizes DTV Education and Bottom Line to Satellite Installers in Keynote Speech at Satellite Expo 2005

Detailing key DTV conversion issues, their impact on the industry and consumer and revenue opportunities for installers.

Memphis, Tennessee (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 27, 2021 -- In addressing retailers, manufacturers, installers, technicians and satellite industry executives at the opening breakfast at Satellite Expo 2005, Bob Howell, Director, Distribution Systems/Off-Air Antenna Business Group for the Winegard Company, in delivering the Keynote speech, commented on the new draft legislation of the Digital Television Transition Act of 2005, due out at the end of this month. Howell said "while the later date may affect the consumer's sense of urgency, possibly effecting sales levels for manufacturers and retailers of set top boxes and digital TV’s in the short term, I think the extra time will ultimately have a positive result. It gives everyone more time to get their plans straight and it gives us more time to educate everyone about DTV and HDTV, which, in my opinion, will ultimately accelerate interest and sales."

Pointing out that there was a lot of money at stake for everyone, he also particularly emphasized the need for educating satellite installers and the ever-changing sales force in electronic retailers on the DTV conversion, saying "they need to know what equipment is needed, as well understand the local digital plan for their viewing area, so they can properly educate customers on what their expectations should be."

The truly huge impact the conversion to DTV will eventually have on the TV consumer, how they receive TV programming and the continued and increased need for education, was one of the main themes of his speech. In it, Howell said "the key to our success with the transition to DTV, for all of us, is education. Anything and everything we can do to educate everyone within the industry and particularly the consumer is worth the investment. The more educated the consumer becomes in order to make the right choices and decisions about receiving a digital signal, the quicker consumers will adopt the digital TV transition and the more sales will be generated."

Commenting on the advent of local-to-local satellite service to the consumer and its impact the number of homes with Off-Air antennas, Howell said "there will always be a market for Off-Air antennas, because no matter how this transition unfolds, there’s still going to be 30 or 40 million TV sets out there using an Off-Air antenna. Antennas are required to receive Off-Air DTV and HDTV signals from local over-the-air broadcasters. And the right HDTV antenna is no longer an accessory, it is a necessity. Getting the best Off-Air HD picture starts with the best antenna for the job."

Off-Air reception of local DTV/HDTV broadcasts is not only a natural supplement to satellite reception, particularly HDTV, it presents additional revenue opportunities to satellite installers, which is why Howell recommended satellite installer professionals keep up-to-speed on Off-Air antenna installation. "With the emergence of this free over-the-air digital broadcast TV," Howell said, "satellite installers can seize this opportunity to exceed their customer’s expectations and to increase the dollars in their pockets at the same time."

"The needs of the consumer must be paramount to everyone," Howell said, "We can't forget that the consumer drives the sales that keep us all in business and growing. And it's the consumer that will dictate the ultimate success level of this conversion and its benefits to us. I believe that if we all keep in mind what’s best for the consumer, it will be a win win for everybody. Once TV consumers get the HD bug, they're going to want all the HDTV they can get."

Installers were urged to contact their local broadcast stations in their viewing area and ask them for their digital plan and to log on to the CEA’s antennaweb.org’s antenna locator site. He also suggested they access CheckHD.com as another site providing digital/HDTV-programming information for local viewing areas. He said "by doing so, installers can access the knowledge base to properly explain to the customer what's going on in their area relative to digital broadcast stations and what they can deliver and what antenna to sell them, providing the customer with a realistic expectation for their HDTV experience." He further urged his audience to attend as many of the 34 different educational forums and training classes as they could in furtherance of their education.

At the end of the show, Howell said, "I was pleased with the attendance and to see SkyRETAILER's special edition on Satellite Expo 2005 pronounce its opening day 'a Hit' and particularly echoing my comments about education being the key to making the conversion a success.

Are Your In-House Business to Business Marketing Efforts Taking the Company Where it Needs to Go? No, really, are They?

Can you recall a time that your business to business marketing efforts were really paying off? If that time isn’t right now, maybe a change to marketing publicity is in order

(PRWEB) June 7, 2021 -- Stop and think about your company’s in-house business to business marketing efforts for a moment; or better yet, go down to the marketing bullpen and simply take a look. What kind of results is the team producing? Are those results generating leads and sales?

Remember to look, and don’t rely on what the team tells you. If you do advertising, ask to see the ads that have been published and find out what kind of leads they generated. Take a look at the direct mail and do the same. Consider the last trade show and how many qualified responses came of it. Ask to see copies of all the articles published about your company in trade magazines.

Are you satisfied with the results? Are these results leading to company expansion?

If so, congratulations. Shake the hand of each and every individual on the marketing team and give them all a big “Thank You!” They are making everyone in the organization’s job easier.

If not, then it might be time to consider outsourcing your marketing functions and utilizing the most effective form of business to business marketing today: marketing publicity.

Marketing publicity is the science (or art, depending on who you ask) of generating news and feature articles about products and services throughout the mass media. That means industry trades, consumer trades, and business to business publications – both print and Internet.

The power behind marketing publicity is in its objective, third party endorsement. First, these articles often include several positive customer testimonials. Second, the fact that the publication has published the article as editorial is also a form of third party endorsement. These factors add up to provide a level of credibility that is hard to achieve with other business to business marketing techniques.

Today, some of these firms are also stepping into the field of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). According to John W. Elliott, of Torrance, Calif.-based marketing public relations firm Power PR (www.powerpr.com), most of the focus in SEO has been in optimizing the company website. However, this limited view of search engine optimization rarely gets a company into the coveted top slot of keyword search results by itself.

Instead, properly optimized news and feature articles optimized and distributed by marketing public relations firms are vaulting their clients to the top of major news and search engine rankings.

What is surprising is the speed at which properly optimized material can impact news and search engine rankings. Many companies, within days of distributing an optimized news article over major wire services and on key industry web sites, reach the top of news search engine results under their keywords. The reported payoff of this approach typically includes an immediate spike in website traffic and an increase in call-in leads

As these articles are distributed through major wire services and posted on key industry websites, the major search engines begin to locate and index the releases. If the article is properly optimized with hyperlinks back to the company’s web site, there will be a corresponding increase to a company’s overall search engine ranking as well.

So, if you are unsatisfied with your company’s business to business marketing efforts, making a change to print and Internet marketing publicity could be the solution.

Furnishings and lifestyle designer Barclay Butera, ASID, debuts the first Barclay Butera Home brand trade showroom during WestWeek, the major annual design event at Los Angeles’ Pacific Design Center (PDC). The 2000 sq. ft. located in Suite B465 on the fourth floor is the second of the designer’s five brand showrooms to open this year, but the only one exclusively to-the-trade. Barclay Butera Home (BBH) brand showrooms expand upon and emphasize the Barclay Butera lifestyle by offering his dedicated line of furnishings and accessories.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- Furnishings and lifestyle designer Barclay Butera, ASID, debuts the first Barclay Butera Home brand trade showroom during WestWeek, the major annual design event at Los Angeles’ Pacific Design Center (PDC). The 2000 sq. ft. located in Suite B465 on the fourth floor is the second of the designer’s five brand showrooms to open this year, but the only one exclusively to-the-trade. An opening reception sponsored by Robb Report will be held on March 31st. Please contact Julie Du Brow for more information.

Barclay Butera Home (BBH) brand showrooms expand upon and emphasize the Barclay Butera lifestyle by offering his dedicated line of furnishings and accessories. Starting with his own nationally-distributed and customized upholstery line – renamed Barclay Butera Home (formerly Butera Home Furnishings) – he will eventually add his own home accessories to the mix, responding to requests for him to extend his vision of fashion for the home by providing unique creations for every aspect of home design.

The BBH showrooms have a clean and open presentation, highlighting the richness of each piece in its best space and light. Says Butera, “The PDC is a perfect venue for the transitional timeless elegance that is the overall goal with these showrooms; less product and more statement pieces allows the customer to appreciate the quality and lines of the pieces.”

Encompix Engineeer-to-Order Configurator Includes Sales and Production Drawings

(PRWEB) March 22, 2022 -- Encompix (www.encompix.com) is pleased to announce the inclusion of the Encompix ETO Configurator as part of the lead Engineer-to-Order Enterprise Resource Planning product suite. Based on Configure One's Concept product it is specifically designed for engineer-to-order manufacturers.

Encompix's ETO configurator dramatically reduces the time it takes to go from a customer's initial request for a quote to when the product is actually shipped by streamlining and automating much of the pre-manufacturing process. This includes the creation of quotes, sales and production drawings, routings, and bills of material. The data is seamlessly integrated with other Encompix components and is used to create a routing and a complete indented BOM in Encompix.

Roy Bruce Rates Encompix ETO ERP Best Value

Roy Bruce Rates Encompix ETO ERP Best Value

(PRWEB) March 22, 2022 -- International Thermal Systems (ITS) is an original equipment manufacturer specializing in complete state-of-the-art engineered-to-order equipment for thermal-processing, metal packaging and finishing industries. ITS is a world leader in the design and manufacture of ovens, washers, furnaces, coolers, and material handling equipment.

After a comprehensive and lengthy evaluation, ITS selected Encompix ERP system to replace aging legacy business applications running on an IBM System 36.

According to Roy Bruce, director of finance, there were three major factors influencing the decision. "First, Encompix matched our need.

Second, the Encompix customers visited were positive about the product but even more positive of the support staff. Third, Encompix was neither the largest or smallest product reviewed but was the best value."

"After visiting other companies and hearing their convictions that Encompix stands behind their product, it only confirmed that we were making the right decision. I would challenge any ETO company to evaluate their process and compare it to the Encompix product. I would be surprised if they found a better match."

Thomas R. Cutler, spokesperson for the ETO Institute (www.etoinstitute.org) said, “The ETO Institute recognizes Encompix as the clear cut leader in the Engineer-to-Order environment. The ability to track the rework is so central to the ETO process that it is a central quality issue.”

Encompix (www.encompix.com) has filled the manufacturing software requirements of Engineer-to-Order companies since 1992. The company name reflects our commitment to developing business application solutions that encompass the complex areas of project-based and job-based manufacturing.

Encompix provides ETO manufacturers with a competitive advantage by improving bottom line results.

Pronto ERP: Truck Delivery Routes Part of Integrated Solution

PRWEB) March 21, 2022 -- Poppa Corn Company Ltd. selects ERP (enterprise resource planning) leader Pronto North America (www.Prontoerp.com) to efficiently monitor their two locations in Mississauga and Ottawa, Canada. Poppa Corn sells concession and fun foods, equipment for making pop corn, slushies, coffee, and candy floss. The company’s distinctive Poppa Corn logo has appeared in major movies.

The lack of integration in other ERP systems made the selection of Pronto ERP obvious. Poppa Corn realized unique benefits in the Pronto-Xi implementation:
- Serial Number tracking and rental controls is essential in concession business model.
- Inventory Control is critical in a wide variety of retail items.
- Custom modification for Truck delivery routes was a built-in part of the Pronto-Xi system, whereas other vendors required a third party bolt-on solution.
- Integrated system with access from both locations was a critical product feature that no other vendors provided.

Pronto North America, based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, is the North American Master Distributor of Pronto-Xi, a comprehensive software system allowing manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to effectively manage all phases of the supply chain. Far beyond just another Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System, Pronto-Xi’s financial and distribution applications are unique and have provided maximum return on investment for a wide variety of organizations since 1976. From Pronto Planning to Pronto Production; from Pronto Forecasting Management to Pronto Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP); from Pronto Advanced Warehousing to Pronto Quality Management System (QMS), the cross-section and breadth of integrated elements addressed by Pronto-Xi is unmatched in the marketplace and justifies the company’s natural leadership role as the best fully integrated business software solution for more than a quarter century. Pronto North America is quickly emerging as the distribution sector ERP leader.

CPDA announces details of the Agenda and Speaker line-up for its Developing a Design/Simulation Framework Workshop, which takes place in Atlanta on April 6th. The event offers a program that will explore the latest thinking on the critical issues facing design and simulation.

Port Chester, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2022 -- CPD Associates (CPDA) announces details of the Agenda and Speaker Line-up for its Developing a Design/Simulation Framework Workshop, which takes place on April 6th at The Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center. This event offers a program that will explore in-depth the latest thinking on the critical issues facing design and simulation.

The one-day program will address the following key challenges and more:
1. What are the requirements for a CAE data model to close the syntactical and semantic gaps between design and simulation? What information needs to be structured to serve multiple product views and different simulations, such as CFD and stress?
2. How can a design/simulation framework promote reuse of objects and methods to minimize the development effort? How can idealization and meshing be automated, and the knowledge reused?
3. What steps can be taken to define and validate products up front prior to detail design?
4. How can the loop be closed between requirements and detailed design to provide traceability and validation of requirements, functions, concepts, and detail designs?
5. How can systems engineering principles be extended to a design/simulation framework?

PartsHotlines.com Revs Up Their Free Used Auto Parts Search with Ground Breaking Satellite Technology that Allows Users to Locate Parts in a Matter of Seconds

While used car part websites have existed for many years, none have had the technology to provide consumers with immediate results. To solve this problem, Hotlines, Inc. spent years creating its own cutting edge satellite technology that searches the inventory of top-quality salvage yards across the country with the click of a button.

Council Bluffs, IA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Hotlines, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch the first and only free real-time search for used auto parts on the Internet available at http://www.PartsHotlines.com

Body shops, mechanics, and individuals interested in finding used auto parts immediately simply type their zip code, the year, make, and model of their car, as well as the type and number of parts they're seeking, into the PartsHotlines.com easy-to-use web form and click the "find" button. In a matter of seconds, automotive recyclers’ inventories are queried, allowing the searchers to know instantly if a salvage yard in their geographic area has the parts they need. Other used car part locating services take 24 hours or more to provide searchers with their results via email or phone.

With the launch of this new online used auto parts locating tool, Hotlines Inc. continues to build its reputation as an innovator in the used car parts industry. "The real-time aspect of the PartsHotlines.com site saves our visitors considerable time, because they're not chasing parts which no longer exist," said Betsy Finnell, Hotlines Vice President. "If a recycler enters a part into his inventory at 10:00, and the site visitor looks for that part at 10:01, he’ll be able to see it. If the recycler sells the part at 3:00 and the site visitor is looking for it at 3:01, he won’t see it," continued Finnell.

PartsHotlines hand-picks the salvage yards for their network based on time in the industry, part quality and the superiority of their overall business. "The salvage yards that we allow in our network are the best in the business," said Finnell.

Mike Vande Voort, President and Chief Operating Officer for Hotlines is proud to make old-fashioned used auto parts bulletin boards a thing of the past. "We are pleased to provide body shops and mechanics with instant, real-time information about part availability and pricing – something that is unique in the industry."

About Hotlines, Inc.
Located in Council Bluffs Iowa, PartsHotlines.com is operated by Hotlines, Inc. Hotlines Inc. and its subsidiary companies, PartsHotlines.com and MrCycleParts.com, have created an extensive network of used auto part and used motorcycle part salvage yards that can be accessed by their online satellite searches.

Mike Gallagher and General Steel Start College Fund for Children of Fallen Soldiers

Gallagher, a nationally syndicated radio talk show host, and General Steel want to pay for the education of children who have had a parent killed fighting the war on terror.

New York, N.Y. (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 16 , 2005 -- Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mike Gallagher announced today that his charitable foundation and General Steel Corporation are partnering to help pay for the education of the children of military men and women who have been killed fighting the war on terror.

Gallagher fondly refers to his estimated 3.25 million weekly listeners as “Gallagher’s Army” and frequently asks his listeners to help in charitable causes.

General Steel Corporation, one of the best-known brands of steel buildings and a longtime sponsor of The Mike Gallagher Show, recently donated $33,000 to start the “Gallagher’s Army/General Steel Educational Assistance Fund.

“I can’t think of a better way to support our troops than to help fulfill these hero’s dreams for their children’s education,” said Jeff Knight, founder and president of General Steel.

Gallagher added, “I am honored to be partnering with a company like General Steel to help make a difference in the lives of these young people.”

Gallagher said he will continue to ask for contributions and donations of support in the coming months to add to the fund.

In announcing the formation of the fund, Gallagher said, “General Steel was very generous in its initial contribution. We plan to take advantage of this fast start by dedicating our energy in the coming months to not only add to the fund, but to publicize the existence of the fund to ensure the money is distributed quickly to the families who need the help.”

Information about the fund and an application can be found online at www.gallaghersarmy.com

General Steel is a leader in the pre-engineered steel building Industry, providing buildings around the world for almost any purpose. The General’s prominent advertisements on radio and television have lead to increasing the awareness of the cost and time savings provided by steel buildings.

The Mike Gallagher Show can be heard on over 200 radio stations daily. Gallagher is also a frequent guest host/contributor on Fox News. Gallagher formed The Mike Gallagher Show Charitable Foundation (“Gallagher’s Army”) in response to his listener’s support of charitable causes he often mentioned on his radio show. Gallagher’s Army has helped send over 70,000 “gift boxes” to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Caribbean Cold Storage Named An Approved Distributor For Yum Brands

Jacksonville based Caribbean Cold Storage has been named an approved distributor for Yum! Brands. They are one of only three companies in the United States approved as a distributor for the export market.

(PRWEB) March 15, 2022 -- Jacksonville based Caribbean Cold Storage has been named an approved distributor for Yum! Brands. They are one of only three companies in the United States to have such recognition. Yum! Brands is a holding company comprised of Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Long John Silver's and A&W; Restaurants. They are a Fortune 300 Company based in Louisville, KY. They are the world's largest quick-service restaurant company with over 33,000 restaurants in 100 countries.

The road to becoming a Yum! Brands approved distributor is not an easy one. There are stringent guidelines and policies that a company must have in place to even be considered. Then, the facility must remain in compliance, which is verified through a series of annual audits.

"Developing a partnership with Yum! Brands is the perfect strategic match for our future diversification. Yum! Brands operates a centralized purchasing system, which puts all buyers on a level playing field," explained Paul Robbins, CEO. "This will allow Caribbean Cold Storage and Caribbean Shipping Services to showcase our strengths: Logistics and Export. I feel that our business is a wonderful complement to the Yum! Brands' operations."

“One of the long term goals of the Caribbean companies is to duplicate our East Coast business model on the West Coast by establishing warehousing, inland transportation and ocean service capabilities in that region,” adds Bill Reed, Special Assistant to the President. “We are thrilled with the opportunities presented to us by establishing a relationship with Yum! Brands.”

“We are very focused on our future growth right now. Currently, most of our customers associate us with refrigerated shipping, but we are working hard to expand our presence in the dry shipping arena,” said Robbins. “We already have the infrastructure in place to offer the same cost effective and reliable services to the dry freight market. We are always searching for strategic business partners who are interested in expanding their business where we are a significant player, and Yum! Brands definitely fits that description.”

Today Caribbean operates from their main offices in Jacksonville, FL and satellite offices in San Juan, PR, Charlotte, NC and Howell, NJ. The company has twice been named to INC Magazine’s list of 100 Fastest Growing Inner City Companies. Since 1999 they have also been included in the First Coast 50, a listing of the top fifty privately owned companies in Northeast Florida.

RFID World Conference Research Report

Incucomm is offering free market research covering the recent RFID World Conference. Over 250 companies exhibited at the show. Incucomm dispatched mystery shoppers to speak with as many of them as possible. A report summarizing the findings of these discussions is presented in a free market research report, which reports on the products and progress of a large number of firms, as well as the potential for IPO activity in the space.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 14, 2022 -- The largest RFID show has grown from the few faithful true believers only three years ago, to a meeting that sold out the venue at the Gaylord Texan. Next year’s show will be probably be larger, but the 2005 event highlighted the maturation of the industry.

According to John Volpi, Incuocmm CTO, “Some of the technology has matured very quickly, and we saw impressive products. But, some new entrants to the market are unproven, and the new EPC Gen 2 tags are not yet commercially available. So, on balance, RFID is a marketplace where a buyer needs to get references from other customers, and be skeptical of plug and play claims. Like other systems based on radio, new entrants who assume it works like an Ethernet will provide disappointing results. We found a few providers with practical products, and impressive customers, but we found more companies with vapor products weak practical grasp of the space.”

The report covers both firms at the show, and firms which did not attend, perhaps signaling a plan for some to abandon their RFID ambitions. More than thirty firms are discussed in the 9-page report, which covers a range of RFID market segments.

Incucomm has published a number of RFID research reports over the past three years for private clients, and for the public. “Last year our offer of free research for a short period was very popular,” said Matthew Bowers, Incucomm’s Chief Development Officer. “We wanted to make that offer again in 2005.”

The report can be downloaded after completing a brief research survey, at http://www.incucomm.com/survey001.htm

The report provides highlights of the sessions of the conference, and provides information of interest to investors, RFID technologists, RFID vendors, RFID users, and firms interested in implementing RFID systems.

Big Sky Makes Big Technology Decision Quickly

Most ETO (Engineer-to-Order) firms take at least twelve months to decide on the appropriate ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. This lengthy process is due to the fact that many ERP vendors claim to be ETO savvy and are not in fact. There are exceptions to the rule. Recently, Big Sky Engineering (www.bigskyeng.com) located in Middleton, Wisconsin, just outside of Madison in south-central Wisconsin, made an important technology decision relatively quickly.

(PRWEB) March 14, 2022 -- Most ETO (Engineer-to-Order) firms take at least twelve months to decide on the appropriate ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. This lengthy process is due to the fact that many ERP vendors claim to be ETO savvy and are not in fact. There are exceptions to the rule. Recently, Big Sky Engineering (www.bigskyeng.com) located in Middleton, Wisconsin, just outside of Madison in south-central Wisconsin, made an important technology decision relatively quickly.

Formed in 1997, with the goal of providing economical automation solutions to the ever-changing packaging industry, Big Sky picks standard, off-the-shelf components whenever possible to simplify maintenance and eliminate machine downtime; however all of the machines are built with future retooling in mind. Their primary market is packaging automation machinery for consumer goods companies (such as SC Johnson).

Chief engineer for Big Sky, Peter Dettmer originally contacted Cincinnati-based ETO ERP leader Encompix (www.encompix.com) via their website in November 2004. Encompix, which usually serves the mid-market ETO manufacturer was hesitant to pursue this opportunity because of Big Sky’s small size and spent much effort pre-qualifying. However, due to Big Sky’s recent explosive growth and plans for future growth, Encompix considered this a deal worth pursuing. Despite a much higher price point than the competitors, the functionality demonstrated in the Encompix overview session made Big Sky’s decision quite easy. To keep sales costs down, Encompix combined a site survey and demonstration into a one day session. The three owners of Big Sky were heavily involved in the process and able to negotiate directly to get this deal closed by mid-February 2005. In return for a discount, Big Sky agreed to purchase one extra user and pay in full for software and maintenance by March 15. Encompix crafted a somewhat revised implementation plan for this smaller than usual customer.

Big Sky’s Rationale for ETO ERP Encompix Selection:
1) Experience with manufacturers similar to their business
2) Ability to integrate with Inventor
3) Obvious understanding of the way they conduct business
The Encompix initial implementation is for eight concurrent users with an agreement to protect the user price for the first year. Encompix has filled the manufacturing software requirements of Engineer-to-Order companies since 1992. The company name reflects the commitment to developing business application solutions that encompass the complex areas of project-based and job-based manufacturing. Encompix provides ETO manufacturers with a competitive advantage by improving bottom line results.

Canadian Photonics Firm Selects Pronto ERP

(PRWEB) March 11, 2022 -- The Optikon Corporation, located in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada (www.optikon.ca) selected ERP (enterprise resource planning) leader Pronto North America (www.Prontoerp.com) because of the flexibility and integration capacity of the system. Optikon was established in 1974 to offer specialized marketing services for photonics products in Canada, the U.S., and overseas. As the company evolved it specialized in the following areas:

- Visible and Infrared Light Measuring Instrumentation
- Fiber Optic Test and Measuring Instrumentation
- Optical Research and Development Laboratory Hardware
- Non-Contact Optical Measuring and Monitoring Instrumentation

In 1987, through an acquisition, Optikon expanded into the field of High Speed Image Recording and Analysis, capturing a sizeable market share of the Canadian market, as well as expanding into the U.S., European, and Japanese markets.

Optikon realized that Pronto-Xi provided a fully integrated system, product and inventory control, as well as multiple currency control. CRM (Customer Relationship Management) is now available from locations across North America thanks to the fully integrated Pronto features. The company also prizes the ability to add a comprehensive service module to better track customer satisfaction and retention.

No other ERP vendor was able to offer OPTIKON the level of complete integration; instead others suggested bolt-on third party solutions for service, CRM, and multiple currency control.

Pronto North America, based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, is the North American Master Distributor of Pronto-Xi, a comprehensive software system allowing manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to effectively manage all phases of the supply chain. Far beyond just another Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System, Pronto-Xi’s financial and distribution applications are unique and have provided maximum return on investment for a wide variety of organizations since 1976. From PRONTO Planning to Pronto Production; from Pronto Forecasting Management to Pronto Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP); from Pronto Advanced Warehousing to Pronto Quality Management System (QMS), the cross-section and breadth of integrated elements addressed by Pronto-Xi is unmatched in the marketplace and justifies the company’s natural leadership role as the best fully integrated business software solution for more than a quarter century. Pronto North America is quickly emerging as the distribution sector ERP leader.

Industrial Connection Offering Advertorial Coverage in March 2005 According to Associate Editor TR Cutler

(PRWEB) March 7, 2022 -- Thomas R. Cutler, Associate Editor of Industrial Connection magazine (www.industrialconnection.net) is the founder of the Manufacturing Media Consortium of more than 1700 journalists writing about trends in the manufacturing sector.

Cutler noted that there will be many more paid advertorial feature articles in 2005 because the demand for coverage in the region has grown so extensively. According to Cutler, "There are just so few ways to reach the manufacturing executives in the region and we believe offering a publication with journalistic integrity is essential.

Industrial Connection is the only Manufacturing dedicated publication covering the Southeastern United States, with emphasis in Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina. Cutler added that, "We are going to generate a series of articles about quality, and manufacturing process improvement from Six Sigma to Lean Manufacturing Certification, Electronic Kanban to Job Scheduling. Starting in 2005, we are going to focus greatly on the needs of the smaller (less than 20$ million in annual sales) manufacturer. We are also going to have a very concentrated focus on ETO (Engineer-to-Order) Manufacturing, because these custom manufacturers have been the beacon of the sector."

Circulation of the publication is 15,000 and distribution is free of charge. Other trade organization wishing coverage should contact Thomas R. Cutler.

Announcing a New Trade Show at a New Time in Hong Kong

A New Prime Time Industry Event in Hong Kong for the world-wide professionals from jewellery and watch industries.

(PRWEB) March 4, 2022 -- World Trade Fair Limited announces the first Hong Kong January International jewelry & Watch Show to be held January 17 - 20, 2006. This newly created event will showcase jewelry and watches from around the world at Asia's newest and most modern exhibition facility--AsiaWorld Expo.

Show organizers are committed to delivering a show experience unique among Asian jewelry shows. Unlike current Hong Kong shows, this event will run from Tuesday through Friday and admit retail, wholesale buyers and importers only. According to B. K. Chow, Show Director, "This will be a 100% trade only event in the world's freest marketplace. By qualifying attendees, we plan to deliver a strong buyer audience that allows sellers to maximize the time spent with current and potential customers. And, as a delivery show, buyers can complete transactions on the spot and return to their stores with product ready to sell."

“Professional Jeweler, the leading U.S. jewellery industry magazine, has been appointed as our U.S. and European representative for the show, and their staff's extensive tradeshow experience spans from involvement with the creation and production of the JCK Las Vegas Show in 1992 and the Primetime shows in Las Vegas, to being the former North American representatives for the Baselworld Show. We are privileged to have Professional Jeweler work together with us on this exciting new event.” BK Chow added.

Also new to Asian shows will be a conference program designed to help jewelers and their staff attain outstanding performance throughout the year.

The show's mid-January timing was selected after extensive research among international buyers and sellers pointed to the benefits of a show in Hong Kong at this time. According to Chow, "January Is a great time to meet local firms or mainland Chinese jewelers for joint ventures under the CEPA policy which allows most jewelry and gem products produced in Hong Kong to be exported to mainland China free of tariff. And, buyers can stock up for the spring and holiday selling seasons with a wide variety of products and price points from which to choose.

The show organizer, World Trade Fair Limited, was formed with a commitment to create new and innovative events and services to serve the needs of the jewelry and watch industry worldwide. "Now, after input and guidance from many International buyers and sellers, we have identified several niches where we can apply our experience in producing unique and successful industry trade shows and conferences to the benefit of our industries," says Chow.

Buyers can learn about attendance qualification and pre-register at www.januaryshow.com. Companies interested in exhibiting can submit their application at the web site as well.

E-Z-MRP Product Features and Low-Cost, High-Value Pricing:

PRONTO ERP Selected by OPTIKON Corporation

(PRWEB) February 25, 2022 -- The OPTIKON Corporation, located in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada (www.optikon.ca) selected ERP (enterprise resource planning) leader PRONTO North America (www.PRONTOerp.com) because of the flexibility and integration capacity of the system. OPTIKON was established in 1974 to offer specialized marketing services for photonics products in Canada, the U.S., and overseas.

As the company evolved it specialized in the following areas:
•Visible and Infrared Light Measuring Instrumentation
•Fiber Optic Test and Measuring Instrumentation
•Optical Research and Development Laboratory Hardware
•Non-Contact Optical Measuring and Monitoring Instrumentation

In 1987, through an acquisition, OPTIKON expanded into the field of High Speed Image Recording and Analysis, capturing a sizeable market share of the Canadian market, as well as expanding into the U.S., European, and Japanese markets.

OPTIKON realized that PRONTO-Xi provided a fully integrated system, product and inventory control, as well as multiple currency control.
CRM (Customer Relationship Management) is now available from locations across North America thanks to the fully integrated PRONTO features. The company also prizes the ability to add a comprehensive service module to better track customer satisfaction and retention.
No other ERP vendor was able to offer OPTIKON the level of complete integration; instead others suggested bolt-on third party solutions for service, CRM, and multiple currency control.

PRONTO North America, based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, is the North American Master Distributor of PRONTO-Xi, a comprehensive software system allowing manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to effectively manage all phases of the supply chain. Far beyond just another Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System, PRONTO-Xi’s financial and distribution applications are unique and have provided maximum return on investment for a wide variety of organizations since 1976

From PRONTO Planning to PRONTO Production; from PRONTO Forecasting Management to PRONTO Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP); from PRONTO Advanced Warehousing to PRONTO Quality Management System (QMS), the cross-section and breadth of integrated elements addressed by PRONTO-Xi is unmatched in the marketplace and justifies the company’s natural leadership role as the best fully integrated business software solution for more than a quarter century. PRONTO North America is quickly emerging as the distribution sector ERP leader.

Marketing Public Relations Firm Outlines "25 Ways to Turn Your Published Articles into Gold"

Special report explains how to leverage marketing publicity to help increase leads, smooth the sales process, and attract investors and new hires.

Torrance, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2022 -- Power PR, Inc., an industrial marketing public relations firm, today announces the immediate availability of a new report entitled, "25 Ways to Turn Your Published Articles into Gold." For any company that seeks publicity for its products and services, this fast-reading report succinctly reveals the means to maximize the potential of most any published article generated by a professional marketing publicity program.

This special report begins by noting that wringing the most mileage out of Internet, magazine and newspaper articles does not end with the date of publication. Rather, publication merely acts as a springboard to multiply the value of that initial marketing publicity exposure.

"If you already have marketing publicity about your company and its products and you are not maximizing that exposure, you are wasting a priceless resource," said the report's author John W. Elliott, founder of Power PR, Inc. "Articles generated by a marketing public relations firm are powerful even when they are handed to someone as a reprint."

The report reveals 25 separate tips that explain how to expose a product marketing story to other individuals—such as sales prospects and potential investors besides the initial readers of the publication. Some suggestions include framing the reprints and lining the walls of the company lobby to impress visitors; and posting the articles on the company Intranet to boost employee morale.

These tips are especially useful when an industrial marketing publicity article is successful in explaining the benefits of a new technology or spotlighting the rollout of a new and innovative product.

“Such marketing publicity articles are an asset, and like any asset, you must keep them working for you," says Elliott with the voice of experience. His marketing public relations firm, Power PR, Inc., specializes in getting published articles for manufacturers about their products—having placed more than 15,000 published articles since 1994

Elliott’s first recommendation is to create a publicity book. Select an attractive three-ring binder and place the company name and logo on the cover. Insert every product marketing article and include a copy of the magazine cover in which the article appeared. Place it on the CEO’s desk for important visitors to view. Also, make duplicates for other C-level executives and sales managers.

CaminoSoft Corp. of Calabasas, California, recently compiled a press book that contained copies of all 64 published articles that Power PR obtained for them.

"We put the book in our conference room so visitors would see it immediately, and they're very impressed, " says Berry Lederman, president of CaminoSoft. "The book speaks for our company. Clients don't have to ask us who we are, or what we do. They just look at the articles generated by our marketing public relations firm and everything is there. It lets people see that our company is solid and reliable right away."

The Special Report about maximizing articles generated by a marketing public relations firm is available at no charge at www.PowerPr.com, or by calling Power PR, Inc. at (310) 787-1940 for a hard copy of the report to be sent by mail.

Power PR, Inc. Announces the First Marketing Public Relations Firm Guarantee of 60 Published Articles Per Year

"Accountability” multiplies industrial marketing to the power of 60.

Torrance, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2022 -- Power PR, Inc., an innovative industrial marketing public relations firm, today breaks ranks with the rest of the PR industry by offering the first “60 published articles per year” guarantee in the nation. This unprecedented number of guaranteed placements in trade magazines and Internet publications suddenly brings “accountability” to the PR profession; allowing industrial and manufacturing clients to accurately justify their publicity expense and identify its effectiveness in improving leads and sales through marketing public relations.

C-level managers, VPs of Marketing and sales managers are increasingly acknowledging the fiscal-driven reality that PR must yield a positive benefit to cost ratio. Yet, quantifying the effectiveness of marketing publicity has, until now, proven elusive.

“Accountability has not been the public relations industry’s long suit, but we now believe that the time has come for all that to change,” states John W. Elliott, Founder of Power PR, Inc. “Business clients want to know what they are getting for their marketing publicity dollars, up-front. We have answered that question by guaranteeing media coverage at least five times per month for twelve full months. We know of no other marketing public relations firm guarantee like ours in the country.”

Power PR has proven it can meet its objective of 60 articles per year based on its past performance which includes getting more than 15,000 articles published for its clients since its inception in 1995. Just as important, 70% of the articles written for these clients comprise feature stories of three-to-five pages in length.

Power PR set its minimum goal of 60 published stories per year because experience proves that it takes this many articles to generate a sufficient number of leads to elevate sales year after year. Without consistent repetition, a company cannot create the necessary number of credible, persuasive impressions required to influence its qualified prospects and expand the business.

Power PR achieves this high volume of published articles because it employs metrics and adheres to well-documented processes that help ensure results. For example, statistics are tracked for the number of: outgoing calls to editors, editors actually contacted, those considering placement of a story, and many other parameters. It is the constant monitoring of these numbers against set benchmarks that turns publicity from an art into a science.

"Metrics and accountability keep us on the path to performance and results; however, results come from more than statistics and graphs,” adds Elliott. "Results come from a willingness to challenge the status quo and raise the bar. You must want to give the best marketing publicity possible. We feel we've done that with our 60-article per year guarantee."

Payment Efficiencies Not Carried Through to Manufacturer’s Websites

(PRWEB) February 12, 2022 -- According to the results of a new survey conducted by Visa USA, just over half (51 percent) of financial executives plan to reduce their organization's reliance on checks as a form of commercial payment, and 40 percent plan to increase their use of commercial payment cards, yet according to Corey Wenger, President of Key Position Website/SEO Marketing (www.key-position.com),”The vast majority of the enterprises will not apply these principles to their manufacturing websites.”

Six Sigma is a disciplined, data driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects (driving towards six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specification limit) in any process -- from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service.

Until now, these Six Sigma principles and methodologies have not been applied to manufacturers’ websites. Wenger insists, “The Six Sigma methodology is a way to quantify the effectiveness of a manufacturer’s website in lead generation and conversion to sales.”

Key-Position Web Marketing develops Lean Manufacturing processes to evaluate the degree to which the manufacturer’s website achieves the intended goal, while examining every avenue to drive increase targeted traffic to the site.

On average, Key-Position’s clients experience sales increases of 200% + in qualified web-generated sales leads through this Lean Manufacturing process.

The ETO Difference: Sales Order vs. Job Order

(PRWEB) February 12, 2022 -- A repetitive manufacturer receives sales orders; an engineer-to-order manufacturer receives a job order.

Manufacturing enterprises are far from uniform, of course, most obviously in size, resources, and end products. Behind those visible distinctions, however, are corresponding differences as well in their automation and collaboration technology needs, reflected in their respective partnerships, and in the enterprise solutions they choose to facilitate sought-after efficiencies. The interaction between suppliers and ETO (engineer-to-order) manufacturers, for example, is far more critical than that between suppliers and their repetitive manufacturer customers. In many instances, the materials requested by ETO enterprises are unique to particular jobs or applications at hand and are ordered infrequently. Lead times are typically compressed, with tight scheduling and no margin for error.

The nature of ETO manufacturing, therefore, presents its own series of challenges. A yacht builder, for example, constructs individual and exclusive custom vessels—no two luxury boats are exactly the same. Such distinctions make a tremendous difference in how midmarket ETO manufacturers handle their ERP (enterprise resource planning) and SCM (supply chain management) requirements:

According to TR Cutler, spokesperson for the ETO Institute, www.etoinstitute.org, "These types of distinctions are the precise purpose of this organization. The focus is not on manufacturing sectors, but rather the manufacturing process. There is an opportunity to consider the unique technologies and tools available for Engineer-to-Order manufactures."

Cutler estimated that there are just under 30,000 "pure" ETO manufacturers in North America yet noted, "Increasingly there are manufacturing companies that are generally repetitive in the manufacturing process yet now want to offer ETO solutions for their demanding customers."

Data Quality and Accuracy Not Carried Through to Manufacturer’s Websites

PRWEB) February 4, 2022 -- According to a new report from U.K.-based IT consultancy Butler Group Data quality and integrity will rise to the top of the corporate and information technology (IT) agenda in 2005 as organizations discover that they lack the ability to diagnose just how bad their data are. Driven by the needs of external compliance regulations and internal corporate governance requirements, manufacturers must ensure data accuracy, Butler Group points out in its "Report on Data Quality and Integrity."

According to Corey Wenger, President of Key Position Website/SEO Marketing (www.key-position.com),”The vast majority of the enterprises will not apply these principles to their manufacturing websites.”

Six Sigma is a disciplined, data driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects (driving towards six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specification limit) in any process -- from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service.

Until now, these Six Sigma principles and methodologies have not been applied to manufacturers’ websites. Wenger insists, “The Six Sigma methodology is a way to quantify the effectiveness of a manufacturer’s website in lead generation and conversion to sales.”

Key-Position Web Marketing develops Lean Manufacturing processes to evaluate the degree to which the manufacturer’s website achieves the intended goal, while examining every avenue to drive increase targeted traffic to the site.

On average, Key-Position’s clients experience sales increases of 200% + in qualified web-generated sales leads through this Lean Manufacturing process.

TR Cutler, Inc. Advertorial Policy Seeks Manufacturing Success Stories

(PRWEB) February 4, 2022 -- Manufacturing publication leader, Industrial Connection (www.industrialconnection.net) has partnered with TR Cutler, Inc. (www.trcutlerinc.com), industry’s leading public relations firm, to offer discounted marketing/communication packages. Industrial Connection readers receive up to 50 percent savings on programs ranging from advertorial placement in Industrial Connection magazine, to creation and distribution of weekly press releases, to the production of catalogs and brochures, to website search engine optimization, to corporate color communication.

“Promotion is essential to ensure success in every manufacturing business. This innovative partnership between TR Cutler, Inc. and Industrial Connection will provide affordable access to creative and effective media outreach for readers’ products and services that in the past have not been promoted due to high costs,” said President/CEO Thomas R. Cutler.

Cutler suggests that a short-term media blitz can quickly raise the visibility of small and mid-size manufacturers. TR Cutler has written more than fifty key articles for Industrial Connection since being named Associate Editor two years ago. This is an advertising/editorial section of the magazine which showcases interesting manufacturing firms in the Southeastern United States, especially Georgia, North and South Carolina, and Florida. Senior Manufacturing executives from the region commonly use this section to figure out which manufacturers and software companies they will buy as well as converting the coverage to direct mail and marketing collateral. According to TR Cutler, “PR is not just to heighten media presence; it builds credibility and superb marketing collateral and drives incoming sales inquiries versus pro-active cold calling.”

Increasing Exposure
TR Cutler is especially interested in learning about manufacturers that have been involved in a system implementation project that yielded exceptional results.

Manufacturing software vendors whose product brings economy and efficiency to manufacturers or who have a story to tell about how their company’s work brought accountability to manufacturers is highly desired.

TR Cutler, Associate Editor of Industrial Connection is pleased to offer the Advertorial Program designed to showcase manufacturers and their success stories. Cutler acknowledged, “We know how hard it is for manufacturers to get these stories published. Cutler discourages articles that simply promote consulting successes. However, through this advertorial, great manufacturers and those serving the manufacturing sector in the Southeastern U.S. now have the opportunity to put their stories in front of similar organizations that may learn from the process.”

Each page of the printed article will not be stamped with a "Special Advertising Supplement" notation because Industrial Connection readers are quite savvy and can distinguish between peer-reviewed technical articles and paid advertorials.

TR Cutler, Inc is known worldwide as the leading manufacturing public relations firm having founded the Manufacturing Media Consortium of 1800+ journalists writing about trends and data in the sector. Cutler is the author of the Manufacturer’s Public Relations and Media Guide, and is published in more than 200 manufacturing trade publications annual.

Pragmaxis, LLC Announces Marketing Automation Readiness Assessment Service

Structured 30-45 day marketing automation readiness assessment validates a company’s suitability for marketing automation technologies – or identifies the remedial actions required to get prepared.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 31, 2022 -- Pragmaxis, LLC announced today the launch of a new marketing automation readiness assessment service that can help companies determine whether they are good candidates for emerging marketing automation technologies. The assessment uses a templated approach reflecting marketing "best practices" that is tailored to meet the specific objectives of the client organization. The assessment focuses on the clarity, scope and alignment of 6 key organizational readiness parameters:

1) Strategy & Goals
2) Core Processes
3) Organization & Management
4) IT Infrastructure & Support
5) Culture & Capacity to Embrace Change
6) Potential Financial Benefits

Depending upon the findings of the assessment, the final deliverable is either an executive-level Business Case for Moving Forward or a detailed List of Remedial Actions Required before the acquisition of a marketing automation system would be advisable. Clients typically will know which way the findings are headed by the midpoint of the assessment. The assessment process is especially designed to minimize its impact on the client organization in terms of disruption of ongoing activities and personnel time consumed.

According to Peter Balbus, Managing Director of Pragmaxis, LLC, "Marketing departments are increasingly coming under fire internally to justify their expenditures and show causality between marketing campaigns and sales. They're also being asked to embrace six-sigma techniques to gain greater efficiency and effectiveness. At the same time, external pressures such as tougher privacy laws, Sarbanes-Oxley and other legislation are making it impractical to support marketing operations with homegrown solutions and simple workflow automation tools. Senior management – and not just in sales and marketing – is starting to realize that they must embrace more advanced approaches to automate marketing activities or find themselves at a real competitive disadvantage."

About Pragmaxis, LLC
Pragmaxis, LLC is a management consulting firm that specializes in assisting executives in defining and operationalizing top-line growth initiatives, eBusiness and marketing strategies for Fortune 1000 corporations. The firm helps senior executives understand how their industries are likely to change in the next 2-5 years and what steps they should be implementing today to achieve and sustain competitive advantage in the future. Industries served include manufacturing, logistics and distribution, financial services, consumer packaged goods, retail, high-tech, electronics and telecommunications.

Senior practitioners have worked for firms including Booz-Allen & Hamilton, CSC Index, Nolan Norton & Co. and KPMG Strategic Services prior to joining Pragmaxis.

Retractable Screen Door Industry: Wizard Industries Seeks Retractable Screen Door Dealers

The CEO of Wizard Industries asserts that the retractable screen door industry is on the verge of a rapid expansion and this affords the entrepreneur a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a successful business. The retractable screen door is rapidly gaining a foothold in the after market home improvement industry and retractable screen door dealers are reaping the benefits.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) January 28, 2022 - “The retractable screen door business is one of the best kept secrets in the booming home improvement industry ,” says Mel Zemliak, CEO of Wizard Industries, a retractable screen door manufacturer that has experienced exponential growth the past three years, “and increasing public awareness makes for a business opportunity of a lifetime,” he goes on to say.

While retractable screen doors have been around for decades, public awareness is just now beginning to grow in leaps and bounds and this, Zemliak says, is largely because the industry as a whole has traditionally relied on its distributors and dealers to promote the product. “Five years ago, if you asked 100 consumers if they knew what a retractable screen door is, the vast majority would have given you a blank stare. Today that isn’t the case thanks in part to the exposure the retractable screen door industry has received through home shows and television programs like This Old House,” Zemliak says.

What makes the business so exciting to Zemliak is that up to two-thirds of dealership sales come from referrals. “Upscale homeowners who have had retractable screen doors installed naturally want to show their friends and their gushing endorsements account for a large number of our dealer network’s sales. Our dealers know that if they sell one, more often than not, they’ll find themselves taking measurements for the fabrication of a unit in the same neighborhood,” he says.

As a business opportunity, the retractable screen door industry is particularly attractive right now in that there aren’t nearly enough dealers to handle the growing demand. “While there are currently four major manufacturers offering high quality retractable screen doors in North America, there are still a hundred or more major metropolitan areas that don’t have a single dealer. This affords the individual looking for a business opportunity a unique window of opportunity,” he says.

Wizard Industries is but one of four major manufacturers of high quality retractable screen doors. All offer budding entrepreneurs the tools to get into the trade, but Wizard has a slightly different approach to expansion. “Most of our competitors focus on building their businesses developing relationships with area distributors. We cut out the middleman. Why should a dealer pay a premium for product when he can deal directly with the factory,” he says.

To get into the business, dealers have to make a nominal investment in training, inventory, and marketing, but the cost is not as daunting as that associated with the purchase of a home improvement franchise. “Unlike most home improvement business, one only needs $20,000 to get started and that’s a small investment considering the cost of most home improvement businesses,” he says.

According to Zemliak, the average dealer nets from $35,000 - $50,000 the first year and that is if he/she handles all installations alone. “Once a dealer gets in the flow of things, his/her growth is only limited by the number of installers he/she hires,” he says.

Dealers are provided a full week’s training at the company’s Vancouver facility because the company recognizes that the quality of installation is as important as the quality of the doors they manufacture. “Dealers learn how to fabricate retractable screen doors to fit just about any conceivable door opening. Once they have demonstrated proficiency, they are taken to the homes of local customers to measure, fabricate, and install a half dozen screens under the close supervision of our staff.

“This hands-on training program not only ensures that our dealers are in a position to start selling and installing the minute they return home, it ensures that their customers will be impressed with the high quality of the work that accompanies its installation,” he says.

The retractable screen doors solve a problem faced by many homeowners who have always sought ways to have screens on inward and outward opening doors and sliding glass doors, where conventional screens cannot be used. Retractable screen doors can be adapted to single swing-in, single swing-out and double french doors as well as on sliding glass patio doors.

In 2004, O’Neil continued to lead the portable printer industry in route accounting applications throughout the consumer packaged goods industry. “We have a number of extremely large national account wins among beverage and bakery customers,” stated Tim O’Neil, president and chief executive officer. “We experienced continued strong sales through our OEM partners, and we were particularly pleased with the substantial revenue contribution from our distribution and channel sales partners. We expect the channel side of the business to grow exponentially in 2005.” O’Neil continued its history of new product innovation with the release of its new label printer, the LP3, designed specifically for the retail marketplace. “We expect that sales to the retail market segment will contribute significantly toward this year’s revenue,” added O’Neil.

Our printers’ proven record of reliability offers a lasting solution such that our customers enjoy a significantly lower total cost of ownership,” concluded Jeff Osborne, O’Neil’s vice president of marketing.

Concrete Paver Sales Rise in 2003 for the Fifth Year in Row

The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute(ICPI) announces the release of an annual study that confirms continued growth of concrete pavers in North America for 2003.

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) January 24, 2022 -- The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute(ICPI) announces the release of an annual study that confirms continued growth of concrete pavers in North America for 2003. The survey estimated total sales for North America at 615 million sf (57.1 million m2). This is divided into approximately 530 million sf (49.2 million m2) for the U.S. and 85 million sf (7.9 million m2) for Canada. Comparing results from a similar survey last year by ICPI, the amount sold represents an 8.8% increase from 2002 to 2003.

“This growth shows the continued strength of the segmental concrete pavement market in North America…” said Steve Berry, ICPI Chairman, “especially in the residential and municipal markets.”

The 2003 residential market once again accounted for almost 75 percent of concrete paver sales. The second largest market was commercial at 18 percent, followed by municipal at 10.3 percent. The industrial/port/airport market accounted for the smallest portion, representing 0.1 percent of all paver sales.

North American cement consumption in 2003 was 1,552,947 tons (1,411,770 metric tonnes), compared to 1,421,663 tons (1,292,421 metric tonnes) in 2002. U.S. cement

consumption accounted for 1,338,312 tons (1,216,647 metric tonnes), while Canadian consumption was 214,635 tons (195,123 metric tonnes).
Industry Insights, a nationally recognized market research firm, conducted this survey for ICPI. The survey report is available from the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI). It can be ordered at www.icpi.org or by contacting ICPI at tel: 202-712-9036; fax: 202-408-0285; e-mail: e-mail protected from spam bots.

ICPI is a trade association whose mission is to increase the use of segmental concrete pavement systems in North America. Applications for “pavers” include driveways, patios, plazas, walkways, roofs, airports, streets, ports, and stadiums. ICPI members include producers, contractors, design professionals and consultants. ICPI promotes the highest product standards through ICPI product certification and installation standards through ICPI contractor certification. ICPI publishes the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Magazine, along with marketing and technical resources for design professionals, contractors, and homeowners.

The Organic and Natural Enterprise Group (ONE Group), Creators of the World’s First Certified Organic Skin Care and Cosmetic Line, Begin Worldwide Distribution

The Miessence™ product range and MivitalityTM probiotic bear the organic seal of approval by Australia’s leading certifying body, the Australian Certified Organic (ACO), a division of the Biological Farmers of Australia Co-op Limited. The ACO sets and maintains stringent quality standards that are internationally recognized as either compliant with or exceeding all international requirements. The USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) has also issued its organic certification to ONE Group’s qualifying productsC

Queensland, Australia (PRWEB) January 1, 2022 -- ONE Group Founding Directors Narelle Chenery, John Hunter and Alf Orpen speak out on the issue of certified organics. “Education is the key to empowering consumers to see through the ‘green-wash’ of slick product marketing to recognize products for what they really are. Misleading labels and clever advertising relating to organic content often mask the use of potentially toxic ingredients, which seriously undermines the integrity of the organic claim,” Narelle reports. “We are committed to providing only certified organic products…” adds John Hunter. Alf Orpen concludes, “It is a common cry of many scientists and economists that within the next 20 years we must implement a strategy to create an ecologically sustainable world, and business is the most powerful vehicle to expedite that outcome.”

The organic industry has achieved compounded growth of 23% per year for seven consecutive years, while the natural and organic cosmetic sector grew by a massive 39% in 2001 alone. ONE Group leads the world in skin care by successfully developing the Miessence and Mivitality range; the world’s first and currently only fully certified organic probiotic, skin and body care products. Market research has shown that consumer demand for organics is growing rapidly worldwide. ONE Group, through its cutting-edge research and development, intends to progressively release dynamic, healthy, first-to-market innovations in the organic sector. Consumer sales of organic products in the US reached US$5.6 billion in 2000, a rise of 19% from 1999. If organics sustains this annual growth (and there is no indication it will not as sales in 2001 reached US$9.4 billion) the organic segment will be worth between US$13 – US$18 billion by 2005.

Committed to a vision of being an outstanding enterprise of inspiration, conviction and integrity that is a force for change towards ethical and ecological business practices throughout the world, ONE Group plans to capture a significant share of the booming organic market over the next 3 years.
