As the junior member of the EXAIR Application Engineer Team, I have a fresh view on the differences in the EXAIR Business Model versus my prior places of employment.
EXAIR has 1000’s of items in stock, ready for same day shipment with orders received by 3 pm EDT. Here, a long lead time item is considered 1 week, as opposed to 20+ weeks, that I had previously quoted at other employers. Imagine needing something quickly and then finding out it would be 20 weeks for delivery. Everything in the EXAIR catalog is a stock item, and ready for your order.
Our year to date on time delivery rate of > 99.9% is amazing, and even more incredible is the streak of 20 years of shipping complete, on time, and correct orders of over 99.9%. Nothing was more frustrating than starting the day with calls and emails to customers telling them their order is going to be late, and the wasted time for everyone in determining the reason, who was at fault, what the new ship date will be and the general disdain caused by such interactions. I sure don’t miss that part of the work day, freeing me up to truly service the customer.
The last item that truly separates EXAIR as not only an employer but a vendor is, the EXAIR Guarantee. Every application is different and it is the Application Engineer’s job to understand the application and best identify the right EXAIR Intelligent Compressed Air Product® to provide the benefit. For those applications that are what we might say, on the ‘fringe’ of the capabilities, the 30 Day Guarantee is a great way to perform a real world test of the product in the actual application environment. If it doesn’t meet expectations, then we’ll gladly take it back for a full refund.
In my time here at EXAIR, every day offers exciting new ways to provide service to our customers. Each new phone call, email, and chat is an opportunity to execute the EXAIR way of business and provide the high level of performance our customers have come to expect, and can rely on, from the whole team here.
