In any business where you customize a product between a major manufacturer and end user the ability to deliver on-time and to specification is make or break. This is no less true in the world of manufacturing equipment attachments. Ed uses the example of a recent project for Teck’s Highland Valley Copper Mine where Finning was attempting to sell HVC a 990K CAT Wheel Loader that required a specialized bucket not manufactured by Caterpillar. Daequip was able to deliver the exact specification and within the required timeframe. Succeeding on projects like this has given Daequip both exposure and customer confidence to secure repeat customers and referral business, combining both the ability to build the relationships and then ground them in a high level of competency.
