TechRep Components, Inc ( TCI ) is a professional sales and application engineering company specializing in the sales of motion and control components and systems manufacturers. Our goal is to continue to be one of the premiere sales groups in our specialty field. Founded in 1973, TCI has enjoyed steady growth and continued success. TCI prides itself on maintaining the solid reputation and company stability we have achieved by carefully managing our key assets: valued relationships with our customers, our principals and our experienced staff. We endeavor to integrate those assets and maintain a dynamic, sales producing entity. Effective utilization of our sales engineers' time is a crucial factor in achieving our sales goals. By concentrating TechRep's efforts in the field of motion control and by representing companies whose products are complementary, our sales engineers achieve maximum account penetration. Since each account is a potential customer for multiple products, line synergism allows TechRep to service customers with both large and small potential. TechRep is in touch with both the product design and factory automation side of our customers' organization. By obtaining an overview of the business and by developing a rapport with the customer's management, engineering and purchasing departments, many of these customers have become strong advocates for the companies we represent. The result is that TechRep has become a valuable resource for both the customer and the principal. Because of our focus on motion and control components, and because we have been serving the California, Arizona, and Nevada marketplaces since 1973, we are able to identify potential customers. Our OEM customers are not limited to any specific market. We have a multi-market thrust. With our factory automation products and systems, we call on all types of manufacturing facilities. These same market segments are alert to the importance of reducing costs through automation. These are successful customers, winners in the marketplace and they will remain our active manufacturing customers.
