Optimism is Important in manufacturing today

At a time of cautious optimism about economic recovery, the mood of manufacturing at Chase Machine & Engineering is one of hope and enthusiasm.  As a custom machine builder, we certainly have concerns about the rising cost of doing business, the strength of our customers and vendors, and our ability to attract and retain talented people.   Yet despite these concerns, we still have never been more optimistic about the future of manufacturing in the 54-year history of our company.

Now more than ever, a positive attitude matters.   At Chase Machine, we offer quality machinery and service in a timely manner.  A customer’s time is as valuable as ours, so we make efficient use of it when we evaluate their needs and propose a solution.  We continue to invest in our company – our staff, the research and design of new equipment, and improvements to existing products – by developing processes that are safe, efficient and environmentally friendly.    While we are focused on increasing domestic sales, technology has made it easier to do business worldwide.  For Chase Machine, “Made In The USA” means something again. It is for this, and many other reasons, that Chase Machine is hopeful about the future of our business and of our customers.

Recovering from a recession and choosing to make an investment in capital equipment is never easy.  Ever mindful of capital equipment costs and access to financing, our challenge is convincing customers that buying solely on price or shorter delivery is almost always a mistake, and from our customer’s experience, a very painful one.

But we see, time and again, that our customers choose quality. They make the right choice, even if it’s a difficult one to make in this economic environment. This is why we are optimistic about our future, and the future of our customers.

Chase Machine and Quality Control

At Chase Machine, we believe strongly that quality counts in more ways than one.

Over the last few years we’ve had far too many opportunities to salvage poorly made equipment. The truth is that when a decision is based solely on price, everyone loses – the customer, the vendor, and the consumer.  Introducing a new product to the marketplace gets delayed for years, straining relationships between the customer and the unqualified vendor, as well as co-workers. Ultimately, the loss to the customer and vendor is immeasurable.

If you choose to grow your business and make the investment in new equipment or technology, make an informed choice by working with an established, reputable company.  Understanding that quality products and sustained service/support come at a cost is critical to making a smart investment.  In this business more than any other, you truly do get what you pay for; the build takes time because suppliers are not investing or maintaining inventory like they used to.  Our equipment is built to last, and we will be here for decades more to service and support it.

Our customers tell us that quality and service really do matter. That’s because at Chase Machine, exceptional customer service has never gone out of style!
