Inside Sales: Friendliness and Communication

Scott Employee Profile:

Michele – Inside Sales

GNG Crest

Accepting a Supplier of the Year Award from Wood-Mizer

Michele Riedlinger is celebrating 20 years at Scott Industrial Systems this year in our Indianapolis Office. Michele is an important member of our customer service and inside sales team with multiple accolades from the company.

Developing Skills:

Michele started at Scott in 1995 with a professional background in customer service. To gain expertise in hydraulics and pneumatics, she had to “learn by doing”. She developed a process with the office manager to learn about the industry and the customers.

At that time, a lot of Purchase Orders and confirmations were still in hard copy format, even with faxing, so she “went in and searched for that order and wrote down everything that was on it […] to get familiar with the actual products and the computer.”

Building Customer Relationships:

This process was the groundwork Michele used to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to interact with her customers.  She describes the rapport that she has with people who call in and talk to her casually or ask her about her vacations, “over the years you build that type of relationship with your customers, and some of your vendors too.”

Developing these skills has helped Michele achieve excellence in customer service. “Sometimes it’s not necessarily the price. It gets you in the door, but it’s the friendliness and communication that holds the sale.”

Company Culture:

Along with emphasizing the importance of maintaining a relationship with our customers and vendors, Michele values interacting with her coworkers in the Indianapolis office. She referred to the group as a “close knit bunch”.

Most of the Indianapolis employees have been with Scott Industrial for over ten years. Michele says that, “with being here so long, we’ve seen a couple people get married and have babies.”

When asked what has kept her with Scott Industrial for so long, she said that almost every day “you get a kick out of somebody, whether it be one of the inside sales people, one of the warehouse guys, or even one of the sales guys. I think that even with just the three people that we have here in inside sales, it’s pretty laid back, it’s pretty easy going, and with us being here as long as we have, we know what we have to do.”

Scott Industrial very proud to have someone with Michele’s knowledge and professionalism serving us in Indianapolis!

Celebrating Our New Expansion

Video Credit: City of Dayton

 

Scott Industrial Systems held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. Friday, July 31st to celebrate a major renovation to their Dayton headquarters. This public event brought together customers, employees, city leaders, and community members to commemorate the 18,000 square foot expansion.

Scott Industrial’s chairman, Randall Scott, took time in the ceremony to discuss the genesis of the company from the home of his parents, Roger and Doris Scott in 1948. Scott’s address focused on the growth of the company and the need for the new expansion.

President Christina Logan then addressed the gathered community members and local news media regarding the recent renovations. Logan put particular emphasis on how it sets up the company for future growth, including larger, more complex engineering projects.

Along with company management, the event also featured remarks from several members of local and state government. Dayton’s City Manager, Warren Price, commended Scott Industrial on renovations based on the efforts and success of the employees rather than relying on public funding. Sandra Brasington, Western Regional Liaison, came with an address from the Governor’s Office. She sincerely thanked the company for focusing growth in the state of Ohio.

Before cutting the ceremonial ribbon, Randall Scott dedicated the building “with great pride, and in memory of [his] mom and dad”.

Founded in 1948, Scott Industrial moved to their current location at 4433 Interpoint Boulevard in 1996.

Capabilities of the Updated Facility:
• Space to stock over $6 million in fluid power products.
• An expanded shop area for hydraulic repair.
• More production floor space for engineering projects.
• Engineering lab.
• Updates to the office spaces and break room for employees.
• Fitness center with locker rooms.
• A larger, more modern conference room.

Scott Industrial Systems will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. Friday, July 31st to celebrate a major renovation to their Dayton headquarters. This public event invites customers, employees, city leaders, and community members to commemorate the 18,000 square foot expansion.

“Our company focus is helping our customers optimize the performance of their fluid power systems and electronic controls,” said Scott Industrial President Christina Logan. “This expansion allows us continue to increase our ability to serve our customers. Scott represents some of the largest fluid power manufacturers in the industry and we stock $6 million in products to fulfill our customer’s immediate requirements.”

A larger shop area strengthens hydraulic repair capabilities and opens the necessary floor space to take on more complicated engineering projects. “We assemble and 100% test cast iron and aluminum gear pumps as well as mobile valve assemblies and can ship within 24 hours in most cases. We provide complete engineered systems including power units and control panels,” said Logan.

Other improvements from the renovations include updated office spaces, a larger, more modern conference room, an improved employee break room area, and a gym with locker rooms. The renovations were completed by John Construction LLC of West Milton.

Along with the building additions, Scott Industrial has added new jobs in the region. According to Logan, “We doubled our engineering staff and added an engineering lab to facilitate programming electronic control systems. With this expansion and added staff, we are poised for growth.”

Founded in 1948, Scott Industrial moved to their current location at 4433 Interpoint Boulevard in 1996. They are a distributor of fluid power products and equipment used in manufacturing. Their six-state territory covers Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

The company has around 85 employees, 60 within the Dayton area. Along with the Dayton office, they operate a warehouse and office in Indianapolis, IN and sales offices in Huron, OH and Louisville, KY. Scott Industrial is actively seeking to hire new outside sales representatives in Dayton, Toledo, and Louisville.

The City of Dayton will assist in a ribbon cutting for Scott Industrial Systems on July 31st at 11 a.m. Food and building tours will be available following the ceremony.

Humphrey Products Introduces New Valve Solutions

Humphrey Logo

Humphrey Products is committed to developing new valve solutions suitable for several markets and applications.

Humphrey Pro Control RegulatorExpanding the ProControl family to go a step beyond single valves, Humphrey adds the ProControl Pressure Regulator Series. These electronic pressure regulators provide outstanding performance, versatility and value. Designed for low volume flow rates (PCRL) or high volume flow rates (PCRH), ProControl regulators precisely sustain outlet pressure, even during dynamic changes in downstream flow rates.

THumphrey Balanced Valve 153-193-groupheir Balanced Solenoid Valves has expanded to include both 3-port and 4-port options in 15mm, 19mm, and 25mm sizes. All six of the current valve styles are developed for maximum utility.  Each solenoid valve meets a variety of functions with its multi-purpose classification. The Balanced Solenoid Family boasts excellent flow while fitting into tight spaces with their small sizes.

Humphrey Pro Control ValvesTheir new ProControl Valve Series provides variable flow proportional to the amount of current applied to the solenoid. Miniature PC3 is ideal for precise control up to 24 liters per minute flow, while the small PC10 controls up to 65 liters per minute. The newest addition, the large PC30, controls up to 300 liters per minute. The inert construction of both valves makes them an ideal choice for many types of compressible media.

Their new Pilot Valve Series delivers electrically controlled pneumatic interface signals tailored perfectly for the device or equipment maker. The miniature A10 Series Pilot Valve, and the small A15 Series Pilot Valve are manifold mount, low power and affordable.

Their new L310 Latching Direct-Acting Solenoid Valve Series converts momentary electrical signals into maintained pneumatic states, either passing, or not passing. Ideal for applications demanding low power consumption and low heat generation.

Electronic Controls – Four-Wheel Drive Control System

Four-Wheel Drive Control System

This story comes to us courtesy of Mark Trent, our Manager of Value Added Sales:

Our customer converts large over the road trucks from two-wheel to four-wheel drive. Their customers range from the U.S. Army to snow removal trucks for the local airport. They asked Scott Industrial to update the control system they use to control the engagement of the four-wheel drive system. Each system consists of a transfer case, front differential, and rear differential. Each of these components has various operating states that need to be engaged by the driver from the cab.

Our system had to perform the required control logic, display the system state to the driver and ensure safe operation of the components. Our customer also wanted to modernize the look of the system, make the control valves modular, and have one supplier for everything in the system… Oh, and this quality had to be achieved within a tight budget.

We quoted a system consisting of Humphrey 430 air valves, GS XI03 logic controller, and a Pilot-CC display. As the project gained traction at the customer, they added a wiring harness, mounting brackets, and packaging.

We were able to meet all their requirements and installed the first system on a truck destined to join the snowplow fleet at Salt Lake City’s airport.

Here is their new display within the cab:

Control Display 1Control Display 2

Scott Industrial was able to meet our customer’s needs safely, effectively, and within budget. These results will be repeatable for any future needs that our customer has for these components.

Schroeder Industries Announces Hy-Trax

Schroeder Logo

Schroeder Industries Introduces HY-TRAX® Fluid Sampling System
Compact Sampling System with Telematics Option

Schroeder Industries, a recognized leader in filtration and fluid conditioning products, introduces its new HYTRAX® Fluid Sampling System.

Schroeder’s new HY-TRAX® System is a compact fluid sampling system that includes a VSD pump and TestMate® Particle Counter (TCM) mounted on a small manifold block. The HY-TRAX® Sampling Systems eliminate the task of locating a sampling port with adequate pressure and flow. Pump speed is adjustable and the systems are designed to operate on mineral based hydraulic fluids up to 350 cSt. The HY-TRAX® system displays the ISO contamination codes and optional saturation levels.Schroeder Hy-Trax

Schroeder offers the system in two versions, a Manual Control version or a Remote Communications version. The Manual Control version allows the user to manually adjust pump speed to compensate for varying fluid viscosities. The HY-TRAX® Sampling Systems are designed to retrieve ISO cleanliness levels from a reservoir tank or a low pressure line (<50 psi). The compact design is ideal for installations on today’s systems with tight space constraints. The unit can be powered with either 24 Volts DC or 120 Volts AC.

The Remote Communication version adds greater flexibility to the end user. The same VSD pump is automatically adjusted by the communication module to provide optimal flow to the TCM Particle Counter. The fluid sampling system collects data and the communications module transmits this data via GSM cellular communications, at two minute intervals. All data is transmitted through a secure VPN connection and is archived on a secure third level party server. The HY-TRAX® data is displayed on a custom dashboard with user selectable parameters. HY-TRAX® will even send alert emails when programmed thresholds are reached. This will provide maintenance mangers with the visibility and information to pro-actively schedule preventative maintenance on local and remote equipment.

More information on Hy-Trax is available here: Link.
