3 Ways to Build a Long-Term Relationship with Your Thermocouples Suppliers

Do you have the need to order thermocouples on a consistent basis? Whether you are overseeing equipment that uses temperature sensors or you are involved in product manufacturing, Kelvin Technologies is here to help! We supply thermocouples that are used in a variety of industries. Our custom solutions make it possible for you to choose the best products to match your needs.

If you will be ordering thermocouples multiple times, then it is essential that you build a solid relationship with your supplier. This connection can help you get the best products at a price that you will love. Here are three suggestions to help you with the relationships with your suppliers:

  1. Negotiate a Fair Price for Both Parties

Often, you can negotiate lower prices if you plan to order in bulk. Whether you are submitting a large order right away, or you will be ordering consistently in the future, the manufacturing team will likely be willing to give you a bulk discount.

But, don’t get so caught up in the price that you sacrifice the quality of the materials. Also, make sure that you negotiate a price that is fair for everyone involved. These negotiations are a way to build a relationship between the two parties. You want to find a solution that works for the manufacturer so that you can continue the working relationship for a long time.

  1. Plan Your Orders in Advance

Even if a manufacturer has provided the thermocouples for you in the past, it doesn’t mean that they can offer on-demand services. You need to work with the company to identify a schedule that they will be able to accommodate. Planning ahead is respectful for their schedule, and it ensures that you will receive your products on time.

Talk to the manufacturing team about the types of materials that you will need. Then, we can make recommendations about the amount of lead time that is necessary for your order. In many cases, we can have the products manufactured and delivered within about two weeks. But, the turnaround time might vary depending on your individual situation.

  1. Maintain Good Communication

Once you have chosen a thermocouples supplier, the next step is to maintain communication going forward. Clean communication ensures that the manufacturing services are created according to your needs. This communication is important for the quality of the products, and to help you manage your schedule. You can talk over the phone, schedule in-person meetings, or stay updated by email. Discuss preferred communication platforms and make sure that you have the right contact information. Don’t hesitate to ask questions if they come up during the manufacturing process.
