I see what you do, but what are you REALLY good at?

As we prepared to launch a new blog on our website, our Leadership Team was wrestling with a question posed to one of our sales reps by a prospective Customer.  After describing the CNC machining and laser-marking of a wide variety of materials for a wide variety of industries, our rep was questioned in a very direct way….”You’ve told me what you do, but what are you really good at?” this question came with very heavy emphasis on the word “really”.  He wanted to know, in an extremely concise way, what distinguished us from the multitude of machine shops out there.  I thought this was a great exercise for our Team and we spent some time together discussing how to boil down Bowden Manufacturing to our essence.  Though the result wasn’t quite as concise as I had hoped, I think it definitely captures who we are and what we are really good at:

       Honest – Friendly – Manufacturing – Partners

         Honest – Faith-Based Integrity is Our Foundation

         Friendly – A People Business and We Enjoy it!

         Manufacturing – Solving Problems & Developing Processes

         Partners – Uncommon Win-Win Spirit & Communication

 

So, welcome to our new blog.  We’ve got a plan to provide regular content to tell Our Story as we strive to Establish, Maintain and Grow Long-term, Mutually Beneficial Partnerships with our Customers, our Teammates & their Families, our Suppliers and our Community.  We hope you’ll enjoy getting to know us a little better and we will welcome your feedback as we embark on our continuing journey.  Thanks very much, Andy McCartney
