Since 1977, Thorvie International has been a leading source for the finest saw and tool sharpening equipment available in the U.S.. Today, Thorvie is proud to announce the addition of a new product to their sharpening line. This 3 stage industrial dust collector system operates at a quiet 68 decibel noise level. The 3 stage filtration will remove particles 0.3 to 1 micron in size and larger. The product is designed for any carbide and metal grinding, sanding or polishing operations.
Industrial Dust Collector Hose Clamp
The Thorvie hose clamp is designed with a magnetic base and the ability to change the angle of the hose. The magnetic base has an “on-off” switch for ease of mobility and cleaning.
“This is a product that has been in the works for quite some time. This dust collection system works flawlessly with all of the machines in our line and we are excited to release it to our customers.” -Rick Shefchik
Recently, I have taken a few calls from customers stating that their sharpening business hasn’t grown the way that they imagined it would. They all mention the same thing; they aren’t landing many leads with the cold calls and their drop-in strategies. Let’s be honest, not every person has the same sales strategy. Because of this, you need to try multiple ways and keep track of what works best for you.
One suggestion I have for these customers is to join their local home builders association. Typically these associations require your attendance at one or two meetings a month and a minimal annual fee.
Many respectable construction and cabinetry companies, electricians, plumbers and landscapers are members of their local home builders association. Because you are a member, you have the opportunity to create business relationships with many people who may use your services. In addition to forming relationships, you also create an easy drop-off location. The convenience of your services is key. Finally, they are outside of their work environment, making them more relaxed and willing to learn about products or services to help their bottom line.
