We get it — price is and will always be an important factor in your decision-making process. Yet, it shouldn't be the only factor or the driving factor for selecting a manufacturing partner.
Instead, it's important to consider the proven manufacturing ability, capabilities, and experience of your custom manufacturing partner. Together, these three attributes can either make or break the success of your project.
Look at it this way: what's the value of a low price if the custom manufacturing partner consistently delivers:
In the end, a great price is useless if your needs are not being met.
However, one often overlooked attribute when choosing the best provider is their dedication to customer service. At Frank Lowe, our dedication to customer service regularly translates into significant and substantial savings for our customers.
Randy Cohen, Senior Vice President of Frank Lowe Rubber & Gasket put it best when he explained "If it's about price, we might be a little more expensive on January 1st. But by December 31st, we will save you significantly"
Let's take a closer look at the impact and value of Frank Lowe's customer service.
You Can't Put a Price on Excellent Customer Service
Although we (at Frank Lowe) know the value of our customer service, you don't have to take our word for it. When Chris Conto, owner of Red Cat Brands, Inc, was asked why he chose Frank Lowe over cheaper overseas competitors, he explained:
"While the prices of overseas vendors may have appeared to be attractive, we learned there were substantial hidden costs associated with working with international vendors. These hidden costs could easily make the relationship untenable. Most importantly, it could result in less-than-reputable product quality, which is something we wouldn't ever gamble on.
Frank Lowe was completely different. From the beginning, they stood out by simply doing what they said they would do and delivered materials that were as advertised. Since our manufacturing relies on the timely delivery of materials, we couldn't afford the shipping delays that are all-too-common with overseas vendors."

Best of all, your single point of contact will gain intimate knowledge about you, your business needs, and goals. As such, we are able to quickly respond to and even anticipate your needs to add the most value. Simply put, we will function as an extended arm of your business.
Frank Lowe Obsesses About Quality Control
At Frank Lowe, we aren't just dedicated to quality control — we obsess about it! We have invested heavily in multiple quality control processes and procedures.
From the moment your order is received, our dedicated team has several measures in place to ensure you receive it when you need it. And if there is a change required or an alternate product or material substitution, we will immediately communicate with you — instead of making assumptions.
Due to our proven and time-tested process and quality control measures, you will receive the right product at the right time. We practice what we preach and “We Get You What You Need When You Need It!”
Clear, Consistent, and Consultative Communication
Another way we demonstrate our dedication to world-class customer service is by delivering clear, consistent, and consultative communication. One of the core reasons we assign a single point of contact to your account is to ensure consistent communication.
What you hear on Monday will be the same information you receive on Friday. At the same time, we stress the importance of updating key information in our state-of-the-art customer relationship management system.
This way, if you do talk to a different representative, they will have access to everything they need to know to continue the conversation in an informed manner. At Frank Lowe, we never want our relationship with you to be strictly transactional.
Instead, our primary focus is that your choices and selections are meeting your needs and expectations. Even if this means suggesting a more cost-effective solution, we believe by putting your needs first everyone wins.
