Before you order thermocouples, it is essential that you are selective about the source of these products. You have the option to work with a distributor, or you might consider purchasing directly from the manufacturer. It is essential that you understand the difference before you submit your order.
Manufacturer vs. Distributor
Even though these two terms are sometimes used as synonyms, there is a distinct difference in the services that are offered. A manufacturer is a company that handles the creation and production of the thermocouples. They have a manufacturing warehouse where the raw materials are cut and assembled to create the finished product that you will be purchasing.
On the other hand, a distributor is essentially a “middle man” that handles the sales aspect for different types of products. If you are working with a distributor, then they are likely sourcing the manufacturing of the products to a different company.
Benefits of Working Directly with the Manufacturer
Some people mistakenly think that it is better to work with a thermocouples distributor because they assume that they will have access to better customer service. But, this myth needs to be broken in the temperature sensor industry.
There are a few big drawbacks to working with a distributor instead of the manufacturer. For example, the distributor doesn’t have any control over the production process. Since the manufacturing is handled by another company at an off-site location, the distributor might not play any part in the creation of your products.
When the manufacturer is involved in material sourcing and product creation, they can adjust things as needed to ensure quality. This direct access is a big benefit that you need to ensure that you are receiving the best services in the industry.
