Sometimes it’s as easy as passing on, a bit of Information.

My biggest distributor started to do business with me because I helped them with a bit of information. We were all sitting in the office and I was trying to explain my products to them. They all listened carefully and seemed  interested, but all of a sudden we had gone off topic. One of the mangers starting discussing sourcing, of a certain product and asked me, if I new were to obtain it.

I knew the source of were to obtain the product and told them. I did not know it at the time, but my information helped them land a substantial tender.

Later, (about a week) they told me that it was my info that helped them, seal the deal. Next I received,  a Purchase Order for my products. We have being doing business, ever since.

Sign, Electrical, Security Companies need the “Rudy Clamp”

WHY? because it really does get expensive, for companies that use stainless steel banding to invest in banding, buckles and tools, when they may only use them 10 times a year. The solution is the “Rudy “Clamp. You only need to invest in the 1/2″ stainless steel coil and purchase the required amount of “Rudy” Clamps. When you have the SS banding and the “Rudy” Clamp you can make a clamp, as small as 1 ft. in diameter to as large as 100 ft. in diameter or more. (the largest length of your SS coil).

So lets look at the Sign Industry – Small sign shop makes a sign and his customer wants him to attach it to a light standard. He cannot screw the sign to the light standard as this violates the electrical codes. Solution uses the ‘Rudy” Clamp with the stainless steel banding. This will not damage the light standard and will hold his sign in place for many years. Also the sign manufacturer did not have to purchase any special tools. All he need to install the “Rudy” Clamp was a pare of tin snips and a Robertson screwdriver. Sign maker sells the banding and the “RUDY” Clamp, with the sign job. Makes a profit on both and when he installs the job he does not need to call in a special installer also saving money. (Please visit our web site and watch the YOU TUBE video “RUDY” Clamp.

Now lets look at the Electrical Industry. Electrician needs to install a disconnect box to a light standard or a concrete pillar, BUT! they are not allowed to screw into the standard or the pillar. What most electricians do,is obtain “U” channel and threaded rod. They first have to cut the “U” channel to length (2 pieces) then they have to cut the threaded rod (2 pieces) assemble the “U” channel with the threaded rods using 4 nuts. Then attach the disconnect box. After doing all of this, it has probably cost them wear and tear on their equipment, cost of “U” channel, threaded rods and nuts. But most of all about 30 to 45 minutes worth of labor. As well a lost production while accomplishing this work. Using the “RUDY” Clamp with the SS banding they could have accomplished this in about 10 minutes or less. (costs go down, production goes up and NO damages to anything).

How about the Security Company. They need to hang security cameras on pillar inside buildings or under bridges or attached to light standards. They basically use the same system as electricians. The “RUDY Clamp, will speed up the installation, will not scratch or harm the pillars in the offices. They can accomplish this without using special banding tools. (keeps cost down, easy to install and improves margins)

You can see the “Rudy” Clamp on our YOU Tube video located on our web site or call BAND-N-GO Inc. We will provide free information to help you become more productive.

Prevent SS Cable Ties from Cutting Cable Jackets

CT5 installation

By using the CT-5 Manual Tool with Tension Adjustment and cutter you can prevent the accidental cutting of a cable jacket. The CT-5 automatically cuts to the desired tension you preset. It is also small enough to allow you easy access into tight spots. When you want a cable tie to last for years and you do not want to harm the cable jacket, We recommend our Stainless Steel Roller cable tie with the CT-5

Take a Minute to Think about Power: October is the U.S. National Energy Awareness Month

Since this blog is appearing on our website, you are reading it on an electronic device. So, it’s pretty easy to realize that without energy, we wouldn’t be interacting at all. Energy is the fuel for how we run our lives in the 21st century and October is the perfect time to appreciate its importance.

To stress the impact energy has in our daily lives, the U.S. Government designates each October as Energy Awareness Month. The goal is to highlight different forms of energy, innovations in harnessing energy, energy efficiency, and sustainability. Our society relies on energy for all of our daily activities and, if you have ever been in a blackout, you know how the lack of energy dramatically changes the way we live.200px-Global_thinking.svg

Although Canada has yet to adopt this month of awareness, it is important here as well. Canada is both a supplier and consumer of energy in North America and the U.S. is a customer, supplier and partner with Canada in North American energy industries.

We get our energy from many sources. Most people know that oil and gas are the traditional means of power. We use oil and gas to heat our homes, fuel our cars, and to power the electric plants that bring us electricity. But, during October it is also important to understand renewable power options. Solar, wind, and hydro-power are clean energy sources that are starting to make a real impact on our energy use. By learning to harness the power of renewable energy and integrating it into the power grids, we are taking steps to ensure that the future will be as bright as the present.

Many U.S. private sector organizations get involved in Energy Awareness Month. The National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project works with utilities to educate students on the need for energy efficiency. These school programs are designed to teach students and their families about where our energy comes from and the principles of conservation and efficiency. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association stresses the importance of updating systems such as lighting and motors to new technologies that use less power than older units. For homeowners, switching to energy efficient lighting like LEDs goes a long way to conserving energy.

Energy efficiency, conservation, and sustainability are goals that we should all be working toward. Don’t be in the dark this October—learn about different forms of energy and educate yourself and others about .
