Exeter, NH (PressExposure) April 18, 2013 -- Tier1Automation, a nationally franchised distributor, targeting benchmark efficiency for delivering basic electrical controls, is now open for business online at http://www.tier1automation.com. "Benchmark efficiency" is producing, on average, a minimum of 20% savings in on-going controls costs for its clients.
Tier1Automation.com's mission is to make available to its customers world-class values in basic automation products such as switches, relays, power supplies, motor controls, circuit protection and enclosures. The Company defines "world-class values" as: top-tier quality components, at the lowest prices online, and wrapped in remarkable service.
The Company ships internationally.
In today's era of hyper - competitiveness, OEM's as well as users are regularly value engineering their equipment for optimum economic performance. Accordingly, controls engineers and buyers are increasingly re-evaluating their traditional modes of controls specifications and sourcing, to dramatically reduce their costs. Switching to sourcing and buying controls directly online has been a clear and effective means to that end.
Tier1Automation published pricing is independent of volume. These and other Tier1Automation price advantages can be verified with real time tools such as Google Shopping.
Tier1Automation regularly screens for products and potential suppliers with quality brand name recognition and approaches to pricing consistent with the Company's strategy. Current partners feature two companies with long histories in electric motors and controls: Altech Corporation and WEG Electric Corporation.
Altech is a long established and respected U.S. supplier of primarily German-made components and devices used in industrial control, instrumentation and automation applications. From its inception more than twenty years ago, Altech has quietly and consistently been supplying high quality products, providing superior service, and building strong partnerships. The company started out sourcing hard to find replacement parts for European manufacturing, automation and material handling equipment, but after recognizing the broader demand for control components, changed its strategy and became a broad, multi-line supplier. Altech is ISO 9001:2000 certified.
