New at PRIER: Swiss Turning Centers

By Jeremy Chancellor, Machining Lead

Recently, PRIER had the pleasure of purchasing two new Swiss Turning Centers. These machines are designed to turn brass rods into small, complex, precision parts.

As the Office Manager at PRIER, one of my department’s jobs is to answer the phones.  We are the “voice of PRIER”. When I am interviewing a potential new team member, I always make sure they know the most important thing they do is to make a great first impression on anyone calling our number.  We smile as we say, “Thank you for calling PRIER Products. This is Cindy, how may I help you?”

By Scott Livingston, National Sales Manager

Fall brings football, autumn leaves and trade shows for the plumbing industry.  PRIER is gearing up for the American Supply Association (ASA) Fall Conference and the ASPE Convention and Exposition. These gatherings are a great time to see new products, learn new ideas and network with the leaders of our industry. We are a strong advocate of the industry trade organizations and appreciate the information shared at these events.  If you haven’t attended one of these events lately, you don’t know what you are missing!
